The ideal vehicle is one that carry a wide variety of loads and can handle a variety of different situations ranging from paved roads to dirt trails, and can easily manoeuvre around English drivers. The vehicle that has risen in popularity is the Ford F150 the American vehicle easily meets all such expectations and then some. However, it has made life interesting for some worcester driving instructors.
This is not to say that Europeans in general and the British specifically are not used to powerful vehicles. Although the stereotype, and not an entirely undeserved one, is that British vehicles tend to be a old and held together by spit and bailing wire. Too many movies that feature the countryside tend to also feature older vehicles as part of the charm, and that tends to color perceptions. From that view a vehicle such as the Ford F150 seems out of place. That view is obviously wrong, and the vehicle fits well along the country roads. The vehicle's versatility is fact welcome, especially given the wide number of roles that it fills.
The problem is that some British driving students want to learn with their own cars, and that includes trucks. Although the F150 is not exactly new to British roads, its new predominance has forced Worcester driving instructors to learn everything about the vehicle in order to better service their students, and there is apparently a lot to learn in order to make effective lessons on the truck. Ironically the problem is the very versatility of the truck most vehicles are designed for a single purpose which makes them easy to teach.
Consider the issue from a small business owner's perspective The F150 can fill a variety of roles making the truck a vehicular Swiss Army knife. The truck has a large carrying capacity, roughly 1600 kilograms without including the 6000 kilogram towing capacity, backed by an ability to drive over almost all terrain, making it ideal to get most loads almost anywhere. Besides training how to pack the truck to maximum efficiency, the driver must also know how to properly maintain the vehicle as well. As there are some differences due to its American origins those origins must be taken into account when a student brings the vehicle in to learn how to drive with it.
Because those differences are subtle, Worcester driving instructors need to know the differences ahead of time, and that has helped them to up their game. It needs to be noted that the trucks have been modified for British use, such as the location of steering wheels and petrol tanks, there are still enough differences that an instructor needs to study up on them a little. This additional instruction is worth it, as few new drivers are likely to have experience with the American set up and learning the differences can be worth it. The additional instruction may seem annoying, but can be worth it considering what the truck can do for your business.
