Killarney driver training expert launches driving DVD
Motorists preparing for their driving test can now view a new DVD aimed at learner drivers which has been produced by Killarney driver training
expert John Fitzgerald.
The new DVD, Pass the Practical Irish Driving Test, presents the viewer with the ultimate driving test experience.
Produced in two parts, part one covers a learner driver who undertakes a pre-test assessment to have their driving evaluated before sitting their driving test.
A number of faults are recorded and pointed out to the trainee and practical solutions are offered in a word picture explanation.
In part two a typical style driving test is simulated where proper driving procedures are demonstrated with a voiceover stating the correct method in which to progress.
"The DVD has a fully inter- active menu to enable the viewer to repeat any of the demonstrated driving skills with the press of a button," said John from ProDrive Training in Killarney".
This DVD should be of great help to L drivers because it gives an overall view of what to expect on their driving test and it should be used in conjunction with their driving tuition.
"By being aware of what you are about to encounter on a test from the DVD, it may help you to relax more and may also help you to give a better performance overal".
