Dual control driving instructor in Sydney

Dual control driving instructor in Sydney

Dual controls are an additional set of pedals located in the front passenger seat to control the vehicle's main functions such as braking, accelerator and clutch. They are used to assist driving instructors while teaching novices and learners how to drive. Dual control is a backup safety feature, so in an emergency, the driving instructor can control the brakes, throttles or clutches in the vehicle to reduce the chance of the vehicle being in a dangerous state.

These dual controls are operated via cables where all components of the system remain inside the vehicle. This reduces wear and makes it easier to maintain and inspect system components. Gilani engineering’s dual control has provided this service to driving training vehicles for many years, therefore they are a proven design, easy to use and versatile.

Driving instructors must follow Australian standards while serving their cause.
