The aim of the lesson is that you will be required to demonstrate your ability to learn how to carry out the correct procedures, when dealing with pedestrian crossings, while also making proper use of all signals by direction indicator and by arm. With the objective being that by the conclusion of the lesson, you should have a good understanding of what is required,
You should ask your pupil questions about the use of the mirror / signal / maneuvers routine, which is an essential requirement on the approach to all hazards, and that they aware of the importance of observing following traffic conditions, which will enable them to take whatever appropriate action is nec¬essary, before considering a signal, or carrying out any maneuver.
You should ask your pupil questions about the use of the direction indicator stalk, which is normally located on the left, or occasionally on the right hand side of the steering column, making sure that they are aware that it should he moved with their fingertips, in the same direction as the intended movement of the steering wheel. That they must ensure that signals are cancelled after the completion of any maneuvers, as the automatic cancelling device may not always operate, where insufficient steering has been applied.
You should ask your pupil questions about the use of arm signals, including those given to traffic controllers. That they are aware that they must he given clearly and in good time, in the manner described and as illustrated within The Highway Code. That the arm signal, for slowing down or stopping, should be used as and when necessary at zebra crossings, to let other road users, par¬ticularly pedestrians, know what their intentions are. That they are aware that an arm signal may be given as a means of confirmation of their intentions to supplement a direction signal.
You should ask your pupil questions about the possible dangers of giving signals which are too early, or too late. That they are aware that signals should be delayed, in circumstances where confusion could arise, such as when there are two junctions located reasonably close together. That when they signal, the direction indicators are allowed to operate for long enough, to allow other road users to see them, certainly for more than just one, or two flashes.
You should ask your pupil questions about the dangers of giving unnecessary signals, which may either mislead, inconvenience, or confuse other road users. That they are aware that signals should only he given in situations, where they will be of benefit to other road users. That they are aware of the dangers of giving unauthorized signals, to other road users, especially pedestrians, such as by inviting them to cross the road by means of a hand gesture, or by the flashing of headlights.
