How to learn

Instructors get a quarter of a billion pounds every year for wasting time!

This is due to the fact that the learning to drive is very different from learning in school.

School based learning depends on learning facts. Driving is based on eye to limb co-ordination.

.

Most instructors still persist in teaching facts, they fail to appreciate the importance of delicate control.

They also fail to appreciate the difficulty of learning new skills through theory.

Think back to when you learned to tie a shoelace.

.

Did you learn by looking at some diagrams and reading instructions?

Or did you watch someone who could do it and demonstrate it?

Did you then practice it slowly at first and get faster naturally?

.

At a junction, many learners and instructors see success as getting into the new road.

EXAMINERS ARE LOOKING AT HOW YOU GET INTO THE NEW ROAD.

They are checking the order and skill of your eye and limb co-ordination.

.

That is what you need to concentrate on when learning.

It is all about DOING things acceptably well, rather than getting down the road.

Concentrate on the process and the outcome will be the one you want.
