Mastering the Brakes

One of the first skills you will learn on your first driving lesson is how to pull the car away correctly and how to brake the car – Stopping it safely by applying pressure with your right foot to the brake pedal.

Whilst this sounds like such a basic task to accomplish, it can take just as much skill to master the brakes as it can to achieve a high standard of clutch control. This is something you will pick up over a period of time during your lessons, as you grow accustomed to the right amount of pressure to use to bring your car to a safe controlled stop.

Safe driving from Britannia!
