How To Use The Steering Wheel

You should now know how to hold the steering wheel and how to use the pull-push method of steering. It is difficult to master this method of steering, so it will need practising. One way which may help, is understanding how much steering is required for passing parked vehicles, turning left or turning right.

Passing parked vehicles – To pass a parked vehicle you will need to steer to the right. You should do this in good time. The nearer you get to a parked vehicle as you approach it, the more you will have to turn the steering wheel to get past it. To move out into a passing position, move the steering wheel slightly to the right. If you can imagine a clock face with the number ‘12? at the top and the number ‘6? at the bottom, you should move the steering wheel to the number ‘1?. This should be about enough steering needed to move out into a passing position.

After passing a parked vehicle you will need to move back into your normal driving position. To do this, imagine a clock face with the number ‘12? at the top and the number ‘6? at the bottom. You should move the steering wheel back to the number ‘11?. Only slight movements of the steering wheel will be required to straighten the steering wheel.

Turning Right – To turn right at a junction you will need to turn the wheel a lot more to the right than if you are passing a parked vehicle. On a normal right turn you will need to turn the wheel to the right just under 1 full turn. When the car has completed its turn and is straight, you should turn the wheel back in the straight position. Note: this is a guideline and may vary depending on how sharp the right turn is. (Instructor guides pupil).

Turning Left – To turn left at a junction you will need to turn the wheel a lot more to the left than if you had finished passing a parked vehicle. On a normal left turn you will need to turn the steering wheel to the left about ½ a turn. When the car has completed its turn and is straight, you should turn the steering wheel back in the straight position. Note: this is a guideline and may vary depending on how sharp the right turn is. (Instructor guides pupil).

To Recap

1. PULL-PUSH / PULL-PUSH METHOD: Only slight movement of the steering wheel is required for example to pass parked vehicles or changes lanes, bigger movements will be required to turn left or right. Feed the steering wheel through your hand using the pull-push method.

2. 10 to 2 POSITION: Hold the steering wheel in the ‘10 to 2 position when you are not turning the steering wheel.
