EDT 10 - LESSON 10: SPEED MANAGEMENT
What is the objective for Lesson 10?
During this lesson your ADI should make sure that you can regulate and maintain good control over the speed of the vehicle in more complex or challenging driving situations.
What is the minimum this lesson should cover?
During the lesson your ADI should ask you to drive in fast-moving traffic or where speeds are highly variable. For example, they could ask you to drive where there are changing speed limits or variable traffic conditions. Some of this lesson should include independent driving.
Expected outcomes: what should I have learned by the end of Lesson 10?
You should be able, without prompting from your ADI, to show that you can:
- manage and control your speed;
- drive safely in fast moving traffic;
- drive safely where speeds are highly variable; and
- make decisions independently when in challenging situations.
You should also be able to describe how to drive safely in fast-moving traffic during different weather conditions.
You should be able to explain how using the vehicle’s main controls and complying with speed limits affect the environment.
How should I prepare for my next lesson?
To achieve the expected outcomes from the next lesson, you should have:
- completed Lesson 1 to Lesson 8 and Lesson 10.
You should discuss your lessons with your ADI and based on their advice, you may also have completed some or all of Lessons 9, 11 and 12. This is because Lessons 9 to 12 can be taken in any order.
Before you do your next lesson, you should ask your ADI for advice on the relevant study material, practice, and/or driving lessons.
Practice is key
To feel confident about meeting the learning objectives, you should also have:
- read the expected outcomes of the next lesson (as agreed with your ADI);
- done enough practice with your ADI, Sponsor, or both; and
- done any relevant study.
Specifically, you should have practised for at least three hours, regulating and maintaining good control over the speed of your vehicle, in more complex or challenging driving situations.
You should also have read the sections in the Rules of the Road that deal with:
- speed management
You should have acted on any feedback your ADI gave you at the end of your last EDT lesson.
