4.0 out of 5 stars The Book for Advanced Driving, 8 Aug 2012
This review is from: Roadcraft: the police driver's handbook: The Essential Police Driver's Handbook (Paperback)
If you are going to take the IAM or RoSPA ADA Advanced driving test you need to have a good knowledge of the Police Roadcraft System, this book gives you that knowledge, it is the bible of advanced driving. To further your knowledge more in book form this can be gained by reading John Lyons Advanced Driving book. Roadcraft was originally written in 1954 and published in 1955. The system was updated and changed in 1994, however a few points to bear in mind are, Warning signs for road hazards are not always as stated, the nearest hazard could be the bottom sign this depends on the local council. Do not use the Rotational steering method shown; instead for open road work hand high first that corresponds to direction of bend, right hand bend - right hand high and left hand drops down the steering wheel, you then rotationally steer so that when you are in the bend at its apex your hands will be at quarter to three and able to deflect the steering wheel for any correction needed in an emergency. The last point in regards to Aquaplaning, yes remove your foot from the accelerator but do not declutch as you need your wheels to rotate to disperse the water and not to lock up which they can do if the drive is taken away by declutching. With those points in mind the rest of the book is the best guide to the basics you require for becoming an advanced driver.
