Commentary Driving is a tool used extensively in advanced driving training in the UK, especially by police services. This excerpt from Bespoke Driver Training's "Advanced RoadCraft" DVD features their founder (an ex-police 'Class 1' advanced driving trainer) demonstrating commentary whilst driving through busy traffic in towns in England, UK.
This video is an excerpt from Bespoke Driver Training's "Advanced
RoadCraft" DVD, and introduces some fundamental principles for overtaking
safely on two-way roads. More information about this DVD is here:
Neutral Episode 1 - Advanced Driver Training
In this episode Jason, Glenn and Damo do a quick introduction then get down
to business by throwing to their first story.
Neutral is filmed mostly on public roads so the guys thought it would be a
good idea to do an advanced driver training course with SDT to improve
their skills on the road.

Overtaking technique for 2-way single-carriageway roads
Overtaking on 2-way roads is one of the most challenging manoeuvres
everyday driving necessitates. This clip is an excerpt from our 'High
Performance RoadCraft' DVD, which we filmed on the speed limit-free roads
of the Isle of Man. More information about this DVD is here:
How to Drive a Stick Shift Manual Transmission Car - Expert Driver Reveals Technique
The first few clips are the most extreme example of how to drive a stick
shift in the most aggressive fashion, don't try this on your first try :).
For those of you who lack a sense of humor or want to get straight to the
point, skip straight to 3:20 where I teach how to drive a stick shift car.
Through out this video that will teach you how to drive a manual
transmission car (manual and stick shift are synonymous), I include made
tips that you probably will not find in average 'how to' instructions.
When text blips pop up on the video, feel free to pause the video to fully
read each tip about to drive a stick shift car.
Be sure to find a wide open space such as an empty parking lot or a country
road with very little traffic when you learn how to drive a manual car.
Also it would be beneficial to either have a pair of shoes on, or barefoot
(for better feel of the pedals and better feedback from what the pedals are
doing). I would not recommend wearing flip flops (sandals) when you learn
how to drive a stick shift vehicle.
If you have questions or comments please leave them in the comment section
and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
The video is a little bit long, but I promise you will pick up some useful
tips and tricks that will help you become a master jedi of driving a stick
shift in no time.
Be patient when learning how to drive a manual car. You will probably stall
a few times, but after you learn how to properly get the car rolling and
shifting gears you can learn more advanced/aggressive driving like I do in
the beginning of this video. Buckle up and have fun, but don't be "that
guy" driving like a (insert expletive of choice) in traffic - enjoy your

Short examples of bad driving (read description FIRST)
Just some clips taken over the past couple of weeks whilst either out on a
lesson or on the way into work. The learner car at the end wasn't the
driver's fault, the driving instructor should have anticipated and
corrected him earlier. Look CAREFULLY at 2:46 where the car is making a
smooth movement into lane 1, then makes a SHARP, SUDDEN jerk into lane 2.

Emergency Vehicle - Blue Light Training - Extended Run Part 1
A look at an extended blue light run as part of a blue light course -
approximately 30 minutes duration. The driver reacting to the actions of
other road users and then planning his route. SPEED not being the issue,
only to arrive at the 'JOB' without incident. All we need in these
situations is other drivers to realise we are on a call and not to PANIC.
So long as we can see you react, we can plan our next move.
ELC Emergency Lane Change manoeuvre
Due to the propensity for SUVs to roll over as a consequence of their high
centre of gravity, carrying out an emergency lane change manoeuvre in the
way demonstrated in this excerpt reduces body roll, maintaining better
stability throughout. The excerpt is part of Bespoke Driver Training's
"High Performance RoadCraft" DVD, details of which are here:
UK Driving Test 1/6 - LDC driving schools
Part 1 of 6 parts of a full UK driving test video from LDC driving schools
(https://www.learnerdriving.com). These videos form part of the
revolutionary LD System. The LD System video programme is used in
conjunction with the LDC driving skills workbook. These resources together
with guidance from an expert LDC driving instructor provide one of the most
effective and efficient ways to learn to drive and become a safe driver for
Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their
pupils what to do and what to think! This approach only fosters dependency,
doubt and blind obedience, such that once the test is passed they do all
the things they were told not to do. The LDC approach is designed to foster
self-reliance, confidence and responsibility resulting in safer drivers who
learn to drive far more quickly and thoroughly.
Unlike traditional instruction LDC heavily promotes student centred
learning. This involves the student being encouraged to take more
responsibility for their own development by using the LD System materials
before and after each lesson and by using discovery learning with self
determination and reflection rather than being told what to do by the
instructor. In particular talk through instruction, prompted practice and
long winded explanations are avoided, if at all possible - instead
encouraging the student to work it out for themselves - to become good

Call 0800 400 777 if you would like to book a residential driving course
with LDC in Pontefract followed by a driving test. As you can see
Pontefract is a nice quiet town and as such is an ideal place to take the
driving test. Pontefract is in Yorkshire close to and between the cities of
Leeds, Wakefield, Doncaster and York. Direct trains go from Kings Cross
London to Pontefract and take about 2 hours. In the video you can see
