PST 3 - TURN IN THE ROAD
* WHAT'S IT ABOUT
To be able to make the pupil be able to turn the car around to face the opposite direction using forward and reverse gears -- This is not a 3 point turn!
*DO I HAVE TO DRIVE FROM THE TEST CENTRE
No, the pupil is at the partly trained stage - Can do turns, emerges etc but never done this before.
*WHERE DO I DO THE BRIEFING?

Steering too slow - Clutch too high, so you zoom off, lack of observations, Not judging focal points or being told them!
