Moving away (Downhill)

There are differences when moving away downhill.

When moving away downhill the weight of the vehicle will start the car rolling without having to find the biting point or adding the gas. In order to move you need to:

  • Push the clutch pedal down and select first or second gear depending on the steepness of the slope
  • Apply the footbrake and release the hand brake.
  • Having observed and signalled if necessary you can when safe
  • Release the footbrake and bring the clutch up smoothly as the car begins to move.

Once moving you must steer the vehicle:

  • Look well ahead not just in front of the car. Your hands follow your eyes so look at where you want to put the vehicle not just at what you’re trying to avoid.
  • Drive about one metre from the kerb and round stationary vehicles (about a car door’s width).
  • Keep all movements smooth and steady.
  • Use the pull-push method of steering. (Variations of this are acceptable if safe and under control)
  • When holding the wheel with one hand, stiffen your arm and grip a little.
