In stage two, your learner gained experience driving on quiet, low-speed roads with other road users in a range of new situations and environments.
In stage three, they’re going to apply the skills they’ve been developing in stages one and two to more complex situations, such as main roads, busy traffic and difficult conditions.
They’ll spend a lot of time in this stage and it will feel more challenging than stages one and two.
The key thing is to always go on drives that match their experience level, so they drive in low-risk through to more challenging situations over time.
As you progress, new driving situations will gradually become harder to help your develop safe driving behaviours.
Always talk with your learner about how they’re going, so they only move on to new tasks when they’re ready.
