How does Gilani Engineering install Dual Control Pedals for Driving Instructors?

Do you know how we install our Dual Control Pedals for Driving Schools?

                                                                                                           ... With Dual Control

Gilani Engineering:

 

What are dual control pedals?

Dual controls are a type of vehicle modification Pedals that allow the front passenger of the car to control the primary functions of the vehicle such as the Brake, Accelerator and Clutch. This works by connecting the front passenger controls to the driver's controls allowing the front passenger to control the car and are used to assist Driving Instructors while teaching learner drivers how to drive. It is mandated that all NSW driving schools have dual brakes as an assistive measure at a minimum.

Installations for different dual control pedals

Here at Gilani Engineering, our industry-leading engineers are able to install all types of dual control pedals including dual brakes, dual accelerators, dual clutches in all combinations. A separate wire is connected for each dual control pedal.

How Gilani Engineering's Dual Control Pedal works? 

  1. We drill one hole to secure the dual control on the passenger's side - Minimal modification and damage to your vehicle
  2. We then thread the cable behind the dashboard and attach it to the driver-side original pedals - NOT THROUGH THE ENGINE BAY.
  3. THAT is it!

 

Benefits of Dual Control Pedals installation at Gilani Engineering:

  1. We only drill one single hole to secure the dual control on the passenger's side and that is it!  - Our dual control pedals are the least damaging in the market!

  2. Our dual controls are Universal which means that we can fit it into your car no matter what the make and model!

  3. You get to keep your dual control pedal for life! Even if you as a driving instructor need to change cars constantly you do not have to pay for a new one each time saving you a lot of hassle!

 

Brake Only

Brake-only dual control pedal installations are the most common type of vehicle modifications used by driving instructors and can be installed in both manual and automatic cars. Usually, the driver's brake pedal is connected directly to a cable that winds around the housing pulley block that manually pushes the brake and stops the movement of the wheels every time the driver steps on the brake pedal. Our specialist engineers connect a cable from the front passenger side brake pedal directly to the driver's housing pulley block so that every time the driving instructor sitting on the front passenger side decides to step on their dual brake, the car will slow down.

Accelerator

Accelerator and brake combined dual control pedal installations are a vehicle modification allowing the added safety benefits of acceleration. Gilani Engineering can install accelerator dual controls for manual or automatic vehicles. Much like the brake, the accelerator is connected to a pivot arm and when the driver steps on the accelerator pedal, the pivot arm extends and enables the brakes to unlock, thus allowing for acceleration. When our engineers install additional accelerator dual control pedals, a cable is installed connecting the front passenger's accelerator to the driver's side pivot arm so that when the driving instructor decides to accelerate, the pivot arm extends enabling the acceleration of the vehicle.

Clutch

Gilani Engineering also caters to vehicles with manual transmission so you can teach your manual learners how to use the clutch whilst you are driving. Our vehicle modification team is able to install any combination of dual controls that you prefer. We install clutch dual control pedals for manual vehicles. When the driver pushes their foot down onto the clutch pedal, the fork lever contracts and pushes the release lever plate which is connected to the bottom of the release lever so the top part of the release lever locks in and stops the pressure plate and crankshaft from moving. This allows the driver to change gears or start the car moving. Gilani Engineering simply connects the cable from the front passenger clutch directly to the driver's clutch allowing driving instructors to take control of the vehicle.

RMS Certifier

We are proud to be one of the few selected RMS certifiers in Sydney and Australia as we can offer the complete service of supplying, installing and certifying for our clients that would like any vehicle modification.

At Gilani Engineering our team of dedicated engineers is RMS certifiers so you can rest easy knowing that we can complete the full process of delivering you a complete package.

Duration on installations

We understand that no one wants to deal with long wait times and installation delays. That is why we ensure to complete your simple dual control installation in half a day to a full day. If you bring your vehicle to us at 7:30 am you can usually pick it up by 3:00 pm the same day. If you bring it later in the day you can pick it up the next day.

Here at Gilani Engineering, the possibilities are endless as we offer wheelchair accessible car conversions built to your specifications and budget. Gilani Engineering understands that some people do not have the luxury of mobility and getting in and out of a car a well as storing a wheelchair can be difficult.

 

Disability Wheelchair Car Conversion

Gilani Engineering Wheelchair accessible car modifications for disability and elderly

 

Our families and carers may struggle to put us into vehicles without injuring or straining themselves and leaving the house can become a difficult exercise for them.

The Difference Between Dual Control Pedals for Driver Training Instructors

Dual controls are an essential part of being a driving instructor.

This is due to the way driving instructor pedals are used when teaching a person how to drive can be nerve-racking and thus be dangerous to the driver, the instructor and everyone else on the road. This is why dual controls are in place so that it provides a safe way for instructors to teach their students.

What exactly is a dual control?

Dual controls are pedals that are placed on the passenger’s side of the car similar to the pedals on the driver’s side. The pedals enable the driving instructor to take control and stop or accelerate the car by using the extra pedals on his side.

As a result, the driver training instructor is able to stay in control at all times when the passenger is driving through dual brake installation Sydney.

If the vehicle is manual, then it is recommended to install a brake and clutch. If it is an automatic vehicle then a brake is the minimum requirement, but you can also install an accelerator to control the speed of the car.

Do instructors need extra pedals when teaching how to drive?

In order to be a fully qualified driver training instructor, you must be able to ensure the safety of the learner, yourself and other drivers on the road at all times. Thus, it is crucial to install dual controls when teaching others.

A learner may make a mistake or start driving too fast but with dual brake installation Sydney such as a brake, you are able to take control of the situation and make sure that all people in the vehicle are safe. The instructor is able to take control and prevent anything dangerous from happening.

 

What are the different pedal kits available?

Disability Car Conversions for Wheelchair Access

Disability Car Conversions is a crucial path when considering your mobility journey. A vehicle modification can start as small as implementing dual controls to a car or something more complex like changing the conversions of a car.

No matter what your requirement is, Gilani Engineering has all the solutions available when it comes to disability car conversions and vehicle modifications.

According to the RMS (Roads and Maritime Service), a vehicle is classified as modified if the original manufacturer’s specifications have been changed or altered by replacing, adding or upgrading components of its body, engine, brakes, drive train or chassis.

People do this so that they are able to change the appearance, handling or performance of the vehicle.

Now that you have understood the term vehicle modifications. Here is the process when it comes to obtaining your modified vehicle.

  1. Firstly, you must look into the state you are wanting to drive in as each state has its own requirements and law when it comes to vehicle modifications.
  2. A Driver Trained Occupational Therapist (DTOT) or specialised driving instructor (SDI) will be able to confirm your requirements for a driving test based on your license conditions. Once the DTOT has been in contact with you, the DTOT will be able to determine your driving goals, level of disability and determine if they are the right person to help you in your driving journey. The DTOT will then organise with you to try out the various equipment available for your situation and circumstances.
  3. The DTOT will then help you understand the various equipment available and you will be able to test drive the equipment to find what is most suitable for you. We at Gilani Engineering have a large range of ergonomic and technologically advanced equipment that you view on our website or in the showroom which is out on display.
  4. The DTOT will then finalise a report for you with relevant quotes so that you are able to give it to your funding manager whether that be NDIS, ICare, Veterans Affairs or Australian Defence Force. You must also take into consideration that if you are fitting it into an existing car or intend to purchase one that it complies with NDIS requirements for modified vehicles. The process can be sped up if you are privately funding the modification of the vehicle as there will be a shortened process to it.
  5. Once the funding has come through, you can start the modification process and get all the necessary sorted when it comes to driving a modified vehicle.

Trikes Allow Wheelchair Bound Passengers To Become Drivers

Trikes Allow Wheelchair Bound Passengers To Become Drivers

Most products that are created for general users tend to ignore accessibility needs and hence these products largely hinder those who require assistance. As a result, those with accessibility needs are not able to participate as fully in society as they could if the products been made with the same considerations. The transportation industry is no exception to this and in fact a perfect example. Most vehicles cannot be used by those with disabilities and as a result, constant innovative techniques are growing in the industry to accommodate. Trike bikes are an important innovation in this regard and are quickly revolutionising the concept of transport and are changing countless lives across the globe.
