What Type Of Learner Am I?

What Type of Learner am I?

We have put together some categories that fit the type of learner you might be which will help you and your instructor understand what resources and teaching techniques will be required to maximise your performance and progress when learning to drive.

Auditory Learner

If you are an Auditory learner then you will often learn better when you have the practical task or theory information explained and discussed with you.
You would much rather listen to instructions rather than read up on written notes beforehand. You will probably benefit from resources such as this podcast.
You will often want to speek out to reinforce your understanding and possible ideas. You like to explain the decisions you are making and tend to need to justify them. When you speak out, you are happy to question and criticise without much fear. You are the type of person who is fantastic at verbally explaining things. You may also like things repeated by the instructor to re-enforce the task or instructions.

Kinesthetic Learner

If you are a Kinesthetic learner then you tend to  learn through experiencing or doing the task for real. You like to get right in the thick of things by having a go at the task as soon as possible and are happy to be learning from mistakes in order to understand the concepts and processes. You might struggle to sit still and listen to an instruction and prefer a more hands on demonstration. You tend to be a more hands on practical person.
You will develop a physical sense of what you are learning and develop your own concepts to adapt and modify to suit similar situations.

Reading and Writing Learner

If you are a Reading and Writing Learner then you prefer to learn through written words. While there is some overlap with visual learning,  you are drawn to the written article through writing it down or reading what others have written, such as our blog. You will read up on the task before hand, research concepts and reflect back on what you have experienced and learnt through writing in diaries. You are keen to analyse criticism and find valid solutions to problems.

Visual learners

If you are a visual learner then you are someone with a preference for seeing demonstrations and observing what others do. Pictures, diagrams and written directions help you picture the task at hand. If you are a visual learner then you tend to understand information better when it’s presented in a visual way. You quite like to doodle, make lists and take notes to help you learn.

Climbing and crawler lanes

Climbing and crawler lanes are provided on some hills. Use this lane if you are driving a slow-moving vehicle or if there are vehicles behind you wishing to overtake. Be aware of the signs and road markings which indicate the lane is about to end.

Paralell Parking

The parallel Park manoeuvre is an important and essential driving skill to learn so that you can park on the street without worrying about curbing your alloys or risking damaging your cars tracking by going in forwards and potentially mounting the curb to get into the space. Most spaces that you come across especially down side roads that don't have drive ways are not big enough to drive forward into a and therefore your only option is to reverse in. At 4front Driving School we want our students to develop a technique that works for them, that they can adapt with confidence and use in everyday life situations. Parallel Parking The parallel park manoeuvre requires you to pull alongside the chosen vehicle you intend to park behind with your left indicator on (if it is on the left) giving your self enough clearance so that you don't come in contact with the vehicle (about half a car door width away). On approach use your MSPSL technique. Try to line up your left door mirro

Driving Tips For Control And Fuel Efficiency

Its important for a driver to input safety margins to take control of the car that compensate for human error, minor lapses in concentration and the mistakes made by other road users. By having this system in place should help you maintain control of your vehicle in a coordinated comfortable way. A smooth and controlled Driving approach can reduce fuel consumption up to 10%. Keeping revs below 2000 and taking your foot of the accelerator going down hill can reduce fuel consumption up to 30%. Avoiding driving with car windows and sunroof open reduces drag and saves fuel. It's more efficient to use the aircon than keep windows open on long journeys. Use cruise control or a speed limiter when you can as this can also help reduce fuel consumption.
