Simulate the Problem

Here's a tip for new drivers from Tyler Cowen: Go over the curb. Hit the tree (softly, of course). Go into 'Reverse' when you're moving (slowly). Knock another bumper (gently).

When you experience a simulated error you're usually better able to cope with an actual one when it occurs.

Driving lessons shouldn't be all about avoiding errors but must include dealing with them. In fact, this applies to all kinds of lessons, no?
