Moving off - 1

Never pull away or move right without life saving check, look over your shoulder for traffic in blind spot. Check mirrors, signal, check over shoulder, and manoeuvre.

Moving into the traffic from a parked position always requires care. Car into first gear, handbrake off, check mirrors, signal pulling out, check mirrors again, check over shoulder for traffic gaps and blind spot traffic. Leave only when all clear.


  • Mirrors
  • Signal right
  • Check over shoulder
  • Move out if clear
  • Beware traffic in blind spot
