Learning to Drive in the Reading area with David Shephard
When you enter the Borough from either east or west and head towards the town centre you immediately encounter a sprawling suburban mix of driving conditions from roundabouts, dual carriageways, motorways, heavily built up housing estates, pedestrian crossings, to T-Junctions and crossroads, where you meet a wide variety of road users.
David teaches learner drivers in and around the Reading area of Berkshire

Driving Lessons in Reading
All the above require a high level of concentration so you should be able to demonstrate the ability on how to apply a systematic approach to driving, such as Mirrors, Signal, Manoeuvre Position, Speed, Look (MSM-PSL). This is a core foundation skill that all our clients at Blue School of Motoring are taught on day one on our training courses.
MSM-PSL also requires the ability to forward plan and how to balance and combine the demands of safe driving and the principles of eco responsible driving.
Driving in town in Reading can be daunting: especially rush hour traffic, complicated junctions like junction 11 near the M4 and the IDR with complicated traffic systems… learn the skills to deal with all these and more
The second part of the module is a practical session, covering the different features of driving in town, such as complex junctions and public transport.
You’ll concentrate on
• observation, judgement and awareness
• eye contact
• consideration for vulnerable road users
• being cautious but not over cautious, and
• keeping space around your car
A busy town centre during the day or evening is fraught with danger from all sides. Rarely do we get the chance to get up to the 30 m.p.h. speed limit. Pedestrians, parked vehicles, taxi-ranks, buses, vehicles loading and unloading and road works are some of the hazards we have to contend with.
By using the System of Car Control we have a systematic approach for dealing with any hazards we see-as and when they arise.
Observation: Throughout the whole System is the taking and using of information from what we can see and of giving information so that other road users know our intentions. The most basic requirement is that we know where we want to go – obvious but true.
We need to know either the place name of where we’re going or a road number. By looking at destination boards, road signs, or lane markings we can position ourselves, in good time, on the approach to side roads, junctions or roundabouts.
Before slowing down or changing position remember to always look in your mirror(s) to check for vehicles behind. Indicate to anyone, anywhere, who you consider would benefit from your signal.
Acceleration Sense: This can be defined as the ability to increase or decrease the speed of a car by use of the accelerator pedal – in response to what can be seen. This is only possible if a responsive gear has been selected for the road speed. For example, if you are in a line of moving cars, keep close observation of the cars a few places ahead and try to predict whether they are going to slow (brake lights flashing on) or turn at a side road (a change of position).
Good forward observation will give you time to decelerate early if need be and to keep a reasonable distance between you and the ‘slowing’ vehicles ahead. With good planning you should be able to smooth out the stop-start habit of many traffic streams and ensure a smoother ride for yourself, your passengers – and those behind.
