- To consistently steer the vehicle through 90-degree turns at slow speed.
- The vehicle should be in a safe area, either on or off the road, with enough room to make 90-degree turns at low speed.
Note: if on the road, then the driver will need to use indicators.
The driver should
- Have both hands lightly gripping the steering wheel in the ‘quarter to three’ position or slightly lower. This is because of the possibility of injury if the airbag goes off.
- Steer the vehicle through at least five left and five right 90-degree turns, maintaining the correct lane position (if on a road).
- Turn the steering wheel back to the centre position after each turn (rather than just letting it turn back by itself).
- Use an appropriate steering method – either push-pull or hand-over-hand.
Push-pull steering method
Hand-over-hand steering method
- Keep full control of the vehicle throughout the turns.
- Look ahead in the direction of the turn, not at the ground in front of the vehicle.
- Perform at least five consecutive left and five consecutive right 90-degree turns.
