Emergency Stop UK Driving Test – Progressive Braking (no ABS)

Hello I’m Chris and in this video we’re going to
have a look at the emergency stop. Emergency stops can happen anywhere,
anytime and it might also happen on your driving
test. But your examiner won’t make you do an emergency stop on a busy
road and it won’t be a big surprise either,
as they get you to pull over and they will explain to you that they will check behind to make sure it’s safe and then they will give you the signal which will be them raising their hand up and saying stop! You would then move off
like you normally would, getting up to a speed that is suitable for the
road and conditions. if it’s wet then expect the stopping
distance to be double, maybe the road surface is gravelly or just poor, these things can all affect your
stopping distance. When the examiner says stop, gently tighten your grip on the steering
wheel, come off gas, press the brake then clutch down. Your examiner will be watching for your fast reactions and your ability to stop the car quickly
under full control. Make sure that you don’t stamp on the brake though, otherwise you could lose control of the
car. Make sure that you brake progressively,
start pressing lightly at first, gradually increase the pressure on the
brake as you then press on the clutch. Once you’ve stopped put the handbrake on, go in to neutral and then you check all around the car. check
your blind spot mirrors, and blind spot. Your examiner will then tell you that
they won’t want you to carry out this maneuver again during the driving test. You would drive on as normal, no
signal needed because you’ll be in the middle of the road already and that’s it. Well thanks for watching, hope it’s been
