ADI Part3 - PST 4
ADI PST 4 - Reversing to the left or right
PLEASE NOTE - DESPITE WHAT SOME LAZY TRAINERS SAY - YOU WILL GET RIGHT REVERSE ON PART 3!
You need to be able on both the left and right reverses to pull the mirrors in and get your pupil to do this by just using your focal points - IF YOU CANT DO THIS - YOU CANT TEACH IT
If you say to me - "Follow the kerb" - YOU WILL FAIL!!!!
(See our video tutorial notes to this PST on our You Tube page. Here)
Reversing - Setting the scene
This exercise will be introduced to the PDI by the examiner saying: “I would like you to
instruct me in reversing assuming that I am partly trained……”
Not being controlled on approach to move right
Hitting the kerb on pulling up on the right
Not being accurate
Not steering enough/Too much
Stopping to close
Not checking observations on moving off
Pulling off on wrong side of road
Where to do the briefing?
At the site of the reverse
The PDI should deal with this exercise from the aspects of technique (coordination of controls, including steering with reasonable accuracy) and safety (proper observation).
This exercise may be applied as a test of instruction on reversing to the left or to the right.
Left and right reverses should be tested evenly.
(The examiner should record whichever is selected by recording a ‘/’ in the appropriate box).
Should the PDI remove their seat belt during the exercise the examiner will need to tactfully remind them that they are a full licence holder therefore the belt needs to be on.
NB: For all manoeuvres.
Examiners should select a road that is safe, convenient and legal (the use of crossroads is unacceptable). They should also have an alternative in mind should the one chosen become unsuitable whilst the briefing is being given.
