2 Comments on "Lesson 1 – Hand over hand steering"

  1. Alberta Transportation
    A Driver’s Guide to Operation, Safety and Licensing page 45.
    “Think of the steering wheel as a clock.
    To have the best vehicle control, place
    your left hand at about the 9 o’clock
    position. Your right hand should be at
    about the 3 o’clock position”.
    Why do you still teach 10-2 for hand position? And why would an examiner penalize for 9-3?

    Thanks

      “Think of the steering wheel as a clock. To have the best vehicle control, place your left hand at about the 9 o’clock position. Your right hand should be at about the 3 o’clock position. If this is not possible due to the design of the steering wheel, place your left hand at about the 10 o’clock position and your right hand at about the 2 o’clock position” (pg 45,46).

      The video is less about the hand positioning and more about proper hand over hand steering technique. Perhaps where the author of the video is from the examiners penalize those who use the 9 and 3 hand position. That wouldn’t be the case in Alberta.
