Driving In the Dark – Night Lessons In Nottingham

So the clocks have moved and darkness falls by four in the afternoon in Nottingham. This is a difficult time for Nottingham driving instructors as pupil numbers fall and daylight lesson times grow shorter. This can be difficult as new clients do not wish to begin a course of driving lessons in the dark and existing pupils may cancel driving lessons in Nottingham. There are however opportunities to teach different aspects of driving that would not be encountered on daytime lessons.

Nottingham gets very congested at rush hour so instructors may need to find routes that do not carry the main traffic flow in and out of the city centre. The glare from oncoming headlights really unnerves pupils and leads to them swerving to the left and hitting the kerb unless the instructor corrects this by steadying the wheel. This problem can be kept to a minimum if the oncoming traffic is not a continuous flow and there is time to coach the pupil into looking ahead into the space to the left of the oncoming car. In congested traffic motorcycles filtering through the middle of traffic flow can come dangerously close to the wing mirrors of the school vehicle. In darkness it will be difficult for a learner to judge a safe position on the road.

Heavy traffic flow at night means a lot of braking when approaching junctions. Brake lights can dazzle especially if the windscreen is wet with rain. Brake light dazzle can be tiring on the eyes and make it difficult for a learner to judge the amount of braking needed when approaching the vehicle in front. Use of the handbrake when waiting should be taught as this replaces the foot brake which can be released so the brake lights go out preventing dazzle to the driver behind. Not many instructors teach the use of the anti dazzle feature of the rear view mirror. It is not included on the controls lesson but is certainly useful information for pupils. Remember to put the mirror back to the normal position when glare has stopped.

If a lesson begins in the light and darkness falls during the lesson the eyes adjust naturally. If a pupil has just left a well lit workplace and got straight into the car they may need time for vision to adjust and driving instructors in Nottingham will need to account for this. The main beam function is often located on the indicator stalk of the vehicle and clumsy use of indicators by pupils taking driving lessons in Nottingham can lead to main beam being switched on unintentionally. Instructors need to make sure switch back to dipped beam as soon as the fault is spotted to prevent dazzling other drivers.

Vulnerable road users are at greater risk during darkness. Inexperienced learners can fail to see them at pedestrian crossings especially if the crossings are light controlled. Cyclists who aren't wearing a reflective safety jacket of do not have lights fitted are a particular hazard that driving instructors must watch for. Night driving courses could be marketed by Nottingham driving instructors to teach these aspects of driving to learners and recently qualified motorists.
