Sit in the right position

Sitting in an upright position close to the steering wheel is not a wise position as it inhibits the amount of movement that is required to safely manage the controls. Female drivers are prone to adopting this position as they need to see the nose of the vehicle for accurate measurement of distances.

Adopt a more reclined position with your arms at a comfortable “v'” shape i.e. slightly extended and not an “L” shape with your elbows tucked up against your sides.
