What We Do!
To obtain a Class E driver license, customers must pass the Class E Driving Skills Test which consists of a series of maneuvers, listed below, used to determine an applicants ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.
Three Point Turn. Turn car around in a 20–40 foot space.
Approach of Crossing. Get in the proper lane and look in each direction.
Straight-In Parking. When properly parked, the vehicle should be centered inside the space with no part of the vehicle extending out in the traffic lane.
Parking on a Grade. Proper parking for uphill and downhill, with and without a curb.
Stop Quickly. Make a quick, safe stop when the examiner/agent instructs you.
Backing. Back a distance of 50 feet at a slow speed while looking to the rear. Do not use the rear-view mirror or rear-view camera monitor.
Obey Stop Signs. Approach in the proper lane, come to a complete stop before reaching the stop line or crosswalk, and remain stopped until you can move safely.
Obey Traffic Signals. Get into the proper lane and approach the light at a speed that will allow you to stop if the light should change. When the light turns green, do not move forward until traffic has cleared the intersection.
Use Proper Posture. Keep both hands on the steering wheel and do not rest your elbow in the window.
Driving on Curvy Roads
Unless you are a professionally trained stunt driver, the glamorous scenarios that are featured in these types of car advertisements can be deadly. Curvy roads cause all types of accidents, particularly if they are not driven on with extra caution. Whether you are driving around a curvy mountain pass or through a roundabout in your hometown, steering around curves can be tricky and potentially cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
Perpendicular: 90 Degree Parking
Once you are relatively adept at angle parking, mastering perpendicular parking is your next challenge. Perpendicular parking is a little harder than angle parking, though not so difficult as parallel parking. Like all driving maneuvers, practice makes perfect. Always choose an empty or quiet parking lot to begin working on this style of parking, to minimize the risk of colliding with other vehicles while you find your feet.
3 Point Turn/Emergency Braking
Always make sure the car is slowly moving in one direction or the other before turning the steering wheel. If not, you put heavy stress on your fan belt, steering pump, alignment and tires.
Controlled Braking. With this method, you apply the brakes as hard as you can without locking the wheels. Keep steering wheel movements very small while doing this. If you need to make a larger steering adjustment or if the wheels lock, release the brakes. Re-apply the brakes as soon as you can.
