If your pupil is struggling with steering to the correct position when first starting lessons, rather than grabbing the wheel, and saying “steer right – Not that much!” or “Steer left, more, more, more!”
why not try giving them reference points?
Think of the steering wheel as a clockface
Steer to 2 o’clock
Steer to 10 o’clock
Steer to 12
Now the pupil has a better idea of just how much to turn – This linked with, when the pupil is in the correct position – Again look at the kerb on the left and where it meets the front of the car or the dashboard, will again give them a reference point, they can follow on their own.
ANOTHER GOOD REFERENCE POINT FOR CORRECT LANE POSITION
Why not say to the pupil, when your left leg seems to be in the centre of your lane, that will mean that you are in a good driving position.
