Universal Driving School Brisbane

Some Practical Points before Starting Off:

Make sure that your seat is set correctly, with the right distance between your chest and the steering wheel.[Your driving Instructor will show you how to set it]. Set your rear vision mirror to suit yourself and check that the side mirrors are set for you as well. Don’t forget to put your seat belt on before you start the car. Your Instructor will then show you how to do a shoulder check before you move off. Your Instructor will also take you to a quiet area for your first lesson.

The correct procedure to follow before you go anywhere in your car
from Universal Driving School Brisbane Wide Blog:
The dash lights must be checked every time you start the engine.
Hold your steering wheel level, above the halfway mark.
Check over your right shoulder for traffic, then accelerate smoothly.
When using your brakes, practice smooth stopping.
Adjust brake pressure according to the road.
Always take the whole picture into consideration when driving.
Don’t assume that other drivers do the right thing — they don’t.
Always be aware of drivers behind you as well as beside you.
Before changing lanes, indicate FIRST to let other drivers know
that you want to change lanes.
Do a shoulder check first before you move into another lane.
When entering onto the freeway, accelerate to 90km + before merging.

Helpful Hints from Universal Driving School Brisbane Wide Blog for Lane Changing:

Treat each lane as a road on it’s own. Check mirrors. If all is clear, indicate for a full 30 metres before moving towards the lane. Re-check mirrors and do a shoulder check for blind spots. If all is clear, drift easily across to the lane. When driving in marked lanes, use the left lane where you can. If you are driving on a 6 lane road you may use the middle lane. Keep your eyes moving and looking arround, and don’t allow your eyes to fix on any object for more than 2 seconds.
You may lose points in your driving test if you do the following:
+You stop any drivers progress when you change lanes.
+You don’t indicate 30 metres before moving into the lane.
+You don’t keep the car entirely within one lane.
+You get too close to parked cars in the left lane.
