sitting mod 2 tomorrow - questions


Recommended Posts

hi guys


im sitting mod 2 tomorrow and it seems a bit late in the day but i got a question.


i just watched a youtube vid on mod 2 and the guy said whenever you slow down on a road i.e speed limit change or anything like that you need to do shoulder checks/life savers on both sides. is this true? even if you arent comming to a stop? what if you are coming to a stop?


my instructor didnt mention this he said mirror checks when changing speed. shoulder checks when changing direction (including moving to the side for parked cars etc etc) and when pulling away.


please shed some light. i will confirm tomorrow but want to be 100% im getting the right answers!

I don't remember being taught to do lifesavers when slowing down (just both mirrors) but I was definitely told to do them when speeding up (both mirrors, lifesaver, zoooom!), to check for things like if you are just going into a national and someone decides that because you have being doing 30 in the 30 you are obviously 'slow' so goes to overtake.

your instructor is correct,,,,,,,,lifesavers are for changing direction,,,,,,,,,mirrors show enough for changing speed
