Crossing Your Hands

PUSHING AND PULLING THE STEERING WHEEL HAS NEVER BEEN  A MANDATORY REQUIREMENT FOR THE DRIVING TEST.

CROSSING YOUR HANDS OR ANY OTHER METHOD IS OK AS LONG AS YOU KEEP CONTROL OF THE CAR.

ITS QUICKER, EASIER AND MORE NATURAL TO CROSS HANDS STEER.

THIS WAS CLARIFIED BY THE DVSA OVER 4 YEARS AGO. WHY ARE SOME INSTRUCTORS STILL TEACHING IT??

The police introduced the method in the 50’s and it seems to have been adopted by the Instructor training industry. Crossing your hands when steering is not an ins5ant Driving Test Fail as many believe but loosing control of the car is!
