This routine is used when moving off from the side of the road. Drivers should prepare the car first, then observe and finally move.  The importance of this routine is to have a guideline/routine of the order of things to do to move off safely and to help the student to remember the components.  The order of the routine is important as well because if you observed then prepared the car there would be a big gap between doing the observations and actually moving off which could compromise the safety.

First of all select first gear, then apply gentle pressure on the gas “setting the gas” to achieve a lively revs, bring the clutch up smoothly to find the biting point.  At this point the revs have dropped and the car is now ready to move.
