CLASS FOLLOW UP INFO
As promised from the Parent Meeting, you’ll find 2 files for your perusal on this page. The first one is the handout of everything we cover in the car when we’re driving with our students. The second is a draft of a Parent/Child contract agreement that most appreciate to get their kids to understand the responsibility and accountability that comes with getting their license. As we stated, our goal is raising responsible adults.
These tools have proven helpful in assisting you how to train your student in a way consistent with our methods. Now go make them drive. The only way they are going to be good is to invest time and commit to good habits.
AS YOU are driving with your child, these CAR COMMANDS that we covered will come in very handy:
• GAS – Give it GAS now
• BRAKE-Apply the BRAKE but don’t STOP
• STOP-Right NOW
• CLEAR-Visually clearing every intersection and RR crossing; Left, right, left, and straight.
• COVER-Foot over the brake but not pressing on it; anticipating yellow light and parking lots
• CREEP-Using the brake to control speed while backing or parking.
All LATERAL MOVES: Lane Changes, Merging on Interstates, Leaving Parallel Park and Hill Park;
• O-Over the Shoulder Look
• G-GO or GAS
SIPDE-Is on Page 4 of the file which they should commit to memory; It is what DRIVE SAFE means when you tell them that after giving them the keys. It is the mental and visual decision making process that is the Cornerstone for Defensive Driving.
• S-Scan the Driving Scene
• I-Identify potential hazards
• P-Predict the Worst Possible Outcome
