Essential Driver Training Lesson Eight
Lesson 8 of EDT
Driving safely through traffic
As the name of this lesson suggests, you should demonstrate that you can drive with due care and attention where there is a higher volume of traffic and focus on defensive driving techniques that show you recognise the risks on the road while being courteous with others on the road.
During this lesson you'll beed to drive in a variety of busy road conditions so that you have a lot of interaction with other road users. With the right combination of practice and support lessons you will be able to show us that:
- You can act properly and decisively when driving in traffic
- Describe potential risks to other road users
- Manage potential risks effectively
- Demonstrate how to make effective progress using defensive driving techniques if it should arise
This is a high level of driving ability and at this point you should have in or around 24 hours of practice including the eighth lesson of EDT. If not, you may struggle to achieve the desired outome of EDT 8. Again if you feel that you are not up to the standard to demonstrate any of the above when you come to take thos EDT lesson we advise that you conduct more practice and filler lessons covering the content of EDT 8.
Next is EDT 9-12. These EDT lessons can be done in any order but we will continue to follow them in sequence.
