Transcripts

Steve Williams: You are learning to pass the driving test with me. I am Steve Williams with the National Driver Training Institute. In this segment, I am going to show to do a proper lane change using the letters T, L , C. Turn signal, look, change lanes. I also want to make sure you can keep a steady lane position while you are looking over your shoulder. To make a proper lane change use the TLC System. The T is for turn signal. Apply your turn signal three to five seconds before lane changing. The L is for look, look in your mirrors and then over your shoulder to make sure your blind spot is clear and then the C change lanes smoothly shift over to the lane next to you.

When you are making your lane change, you want to be careful not to shift your lane position when you look over your shoulder. We can accomplish this with the system we call lock, loosen and look. Lock your shoulders, loosen your arms and then look. This moves your head without moving your body and it only takes a second.

In the next segment, we will look at the traffic laws that are the most common cause of drive test failures.

Thanks for the video. I had my son watch this and I think it really did help. I've been trying to learn as much as I can about texting and driving. What suggestions do you have to prevent distracted driving? I found http://www.trinitynoble.com but I'm always open to other suggestions.

The speed of the vehicle and framerate of the camera make the wheels look like they are not turning.
