Why do quality Brisbane driving schools use Drills
with Learner Drivers in Sherwood | Chelmer | Graceville |

Drills are activities that focus on a particular skill development and are essential in the early stages of driving to build a complete and safe driver. Every drill has a purpose and will help the learner do an activity well in a conscious manner until they eventually let their sub-conscience do the work. At this point they can move to other focus activities.

With over 50 drills listed here which may each take 3 to 30 minutes to cover the one activity, it is easy to see that about 10-15 hours can easily be spent on these important drills. When put to the Test many learners come up short on these very important activites, so consider seriously seeing a Quality Driving Instructor in the Sherwood Chelmer and Graceville area.

A sample of possible drills are listed below :

It is up to the Driving Instructor to develop or adapt these drills for each Sherwood Chelmer and Graceville Learner. They may see a need for many additional drills that will assist learners in the Driving School. We will help you by detailing a few of these drills on this website.
