Report her to the DSA to retract her Pass Certificate until she learns to stop stalling.
lol No. Every now and again people will do it, because the engine is cold or lack of concentration or something. But thats like, once every 500/1000 miles
I stalled loads in the lesson before my test, but then didn't during my test!
It's a safety mechanism thing to prevent damage from occuring to the engine, so it can't be that bad.
i stalled once on my test 2 minutes after it started before i went onto a roundabout....lol
I know someone who stalled 6 times in their test and still passed...
I haven't got through a 2 hr lesson yet without stalling (and I've had about 20). I usually stall just as it occurs to me that I haven't yet stalled. Meh.
I used to stall every lesson, but then coming up to my test when I was getting more confident I rarely did it.
Then when I passed and went in my own car I stalled LOADS! Is your friend in a different car to what she learned in, because it took me about a day to get used to the clutch in my own car...it's so sensitive compared to the one I learned in - I still stall now, but not nearly as often as I used to.
I use to stall about 4 times at first and the went to not stalling at all. Sometimes I would think wow I haven't stalled yet and then I stalled. But these days its all good, no stalling.
Get her to open the throttle more, boot up the revs help.
Stalling isnt great for the car. It happens because the gear is too high for the speed...ie the revs and so there is to much strain on the engine and the engine cannot turn the engine over. Its like, if you try ot go up a steep hilll on your bike in a high gear and after a while you just cant turn the pedals. You should have gone to a lower gear and then you would have been able to keep going but when you cant turn the padeals you "stall"
It does put some strain on the engine but its not too bad
Nope hardly ever stall..only when in a rush and quickly go to move off...u either stall or wheel spin!
She's probably in a very different, older, less learner friendly car than she's used to driving. It's probably only the second car (therefore clutch) she's ever driven, and she's probably still a bit nervous about being out on her own.
She'll be fine in a week, max.
There is NOTHING wrong with stalling; Stalling doesn't make you a bad driver; and it's not even a fault on the driving test (depending on the where it happens)...*sigh*
