  • There is a lot more to braking a car than simply pressing the brake pedal. An expert driver will be able to read the road ahead and then use good braking technique to smoothly slow or stop the car. However, an inexperienced driver might find themselves often braking their car sharply or stopping with a sudden jolt. This poor braking technique will be uncomfortable for their passengers, increase their brake wear, and could even result in a loss of car control. This video will show how to brake progressively - as this is the safest and smoothest technique for road driving.

    This video covers;
    * What is progressive braking
    * How to brake progressively
    * Braking to a stop smoothly
    * Braking from high speed

    After using this technique for some time, you really become aware of how horrible people in front of you are at braking.. especially entering downhill grades. watch those brake lights flicker on and off as they repeatedly TAPTAPTAP the brakes

    Thing is say if you’re braking for a roundabout and there is a bend just before it, you would do all your braking before you steer into the bend but then you would have to brake again to stop for traffic emerging from the right, so really you have double braked to stop. My old man who was a class 1 Advanced driver said double braking is amateur and poor.

    You videos are really helpful !

    I just wanted to know when the cluch should go down , how many MPH do you have to be driving at .

    In this video when slowing down and stopping the clutch was used around 40 MPH is that not too soon my understanding is 30MPH and under?

    Why is there no BELL sound when I hit the Bell, it would make the experience so much more enjoyable and believable.

    What about automatic cars? You have to keep your foot on the brake pedal to stop the car from moving?
