The average waiting time for a driving test appointment in the Sidcup area is well over 2 months. This is fine if you are still learning to drive as most driving instructors would advise you to book before you’re actually ready. However, the huge waiting time can be problematic if you have recently failed a driving test. Luckily, DTC Intensive Driving Courses Sidcup has the solution.

Intensive Driving Lessons Sidcup

An intensive driving course is a fantastic way to reach test standard in a within a short time frame but it will not make you an experienced driver. Taking weekly driving lessons will give you experience in dealing with different conditions such as driving in bad weather, varying traffic conditions and driving in the dark. Learning over a longer period allows the information given in the lessons to enter the long-term memory.

Sidcup is primarily in the London Borough of Bexley and is situated in south-east London. It borders the London Borough of Bromley and Greenwich and is 11.3 miles south-east of Charing Cross. Neighborhoods such as Foots Cray, North Cray, Albany Park, Longlands, Ruxley, Blackfen and Lamborbey make up the population of Sidcup.

Sidcup is made up of large Victorian and Edwardian properties which are alongside the typical 1930s residential areas. There are many parks and open spaces in the area – this is where great estates and large homes once stood in the area. Sidcup is also very well known for Queen Mary’s Hospital which was established in 1993 by Queen Mary’s Sidcup NHS Trust.

When it comes to transport Sidcup’s national rail station opened in October 1866 – this was a month after the opening of The Dartford Loop Line which opened on 1st September 1866. The station provides the area with Southeastern services to London Charing Cross, London Cannon Street via Lewisham, Woolwich Arsenal, Dratford and Gravesend.

Based in the South East of London, you can expect a variety of road and traffic conditions. The reverse manoeuvres are usually carried out in quite residential roads. 

Reverse Manoeuvres
During your semi intensive driving course at Sidcup,  you will be taught to reverse safely with due regard to other road users. There are four manoeuvres you will learn during your crash driving course. However, in the actual driving test, the examiner will choose one of them. The four manoeuvres include parallel parking, stopping on the right-hand side of the road and then reversing back, reversing into a bay, and finally driving forward into a bay and then reversing back. 

The Emergency Stop
Learning the emergency stop is an important part of your intensive driving lessons in Sidcup. However, in the actual practical test the examiner will ask one in three candidates will be asked to carry out the emergency stop. 

The purpose of this exercise is to demonstrate that you can stop suddenly but safely. The examiner will tell you a few minutes in advance that you will be carrying out the emergency stop. The words used by the examiner will be, “ ‘Shortly, I shall ask you to carry out an emergency stop. I will raise my right hand as a signal and shout, Stop. When I shout Stop, I would like you to stop promptly as if a child had stepped in front of you.”

You need to drive normally before the emergency stop. Do not accelerate suddenly to build up a good speed and on the other hand, do not purposely drive slow in anticipation of the emergency stop. Many learner drivers who fail on this exercise often do so out of fear, driving slowly, believing it would be easier, or failing to make proper observations after the emergency stop.

Bus Lanes
Many drivers avoid driving in bus lanes so that they do not get a ticket. However, some of the bus lanes in the area are marked with timings. It is only during these times a car driver must not enter the bus lane; it is when the bus lane is in force. During your practical test, the examiner will expect you to use the bus if it is out of operational hours.
