Push, Pull Steering Technique
At 4front Driving School we teach the Push Pull Steering Technique as it is the is the expected and safest method of steering when learning to drive, reducing the risk of loosing control and avoids crossing arms. This technique allows you – the driver to sit in a better posture position. It helps you achieve a more controlled grip of the steering wheel and helps you perform smoother turn of the wheel. Therefore it is recognised as the safe practice when it comes to steering than other techniques. However when you pass your test it is up to you to decide what technique you adapt into your own Driving style or technique.
The Technique Explained
Position your hands at 10 O’clock and 2 O’clock on the steering wheel as if you were driving in a straight line.
When you want to turn left, the left hand and right hand slide to 12 O’clock
The left hand pulls the steering wheel down to 6 O’clock while the right hand slides down to 6 O’clock to take over then the right hand at 6 O’clock pushes the steering wheel up to the 12 O’clock where the right hand meets at the top. This can continue until a full lock is achieved.
When you want to turn right, the left hand and right hand again need to slide to 12 O’clock.
The right hand this time pulls the steering wheel down to 6 O’clock while the left hand slides down to 6 O’clock instead to take over then the left hand at 6 O’clock pushes the steering wheel up to the 12 O’clock where the right hand meets at the top. This can continue until a full lock is achieved.
To straighten up the car, you need to let the steering wheel glide through your fingers and grip the wheel when the wheels are straight.
