Dual Control Pedal Designs and Implementations

February 5, 2020

What is Dual Control?

Dual controls are an additional set of pedals located in the front passenger seat linked to the original pedals. This is mainly used for driving instruction purposes and allows the instructor to operate the vehicle pedals from passenger side. They are often operated via cables, where all components of the system remain inside the vehicle. This reduces damage, wear and makes it easier to maintain and inspect system components.

Dual Control Designs

Dual control systems often come as a pedal kit. These pedal kits are equipped with options to suit any vehicle with brake, clutch and accelerator pedal. With a few changes, you can control the original pedals and intervene or train a learning driver. The cable length is adjustable and can be installed in even the most compact cars, MPV, jeeps, bus or truck due to its flexibility and small size. These kits include stainless steel cables used to pull the original pedal.

Dual Controls Left Foot Accelerators and Pedal Extensions are just a few of the many modifications we can use to customize vehicles and simplify commuting.

They come in 4 different combinations, including:

  • Brake
  • Brake and Accelerator.
  • Brake and Clutch.
  • Brake, Clutch and Accelerator.

While implementing, one must follow local transport regulations according to Australian Standards:  

As a guide, the vehicle must have all of the following:

  • Passenger side brake pedal.
  • An additional internal rear-view mirror can be used, instructors can see the traffic approaching from the rear-view mirrors-makeup mirrors with sun visors are not acceptable
  • A clearly visible label is affixed to the passenger side of the dashboard, which reads "This vehicle is equipped with dual controls."

Gilani Engineering installs these kits on the vehicle’s structural section close to the same horizontal and vertical plane as the driver's side pedal. This ensures that the passenger has the same response and view as the driver. The pedals, cables and pivots must have the same strength, material and durability as the original controls.

The installation does not require any cutting or extensive modification of the vehicle unlike the outdated rods and rod system used. Furthermore, our dual control kits are easily removable meaning that the device can be re-installed on vehicles of different brands, models or years and leaving your car in its original condition. Our dual control has been installed on numerous vehicles in Sydney area.

Gilani engineering’s dual controls have provided driver training vehicles for many years which indicates that they are a proven design, easy to use and versatile. If you decide to update your driver training vehicle later, our dual control device is fully repairable, removable and it can be easily re-installed on any vehicles of any brand, model or year.

One of the most important things in this system is its installation which must be done correctly. On the proper structural section of the vehicle close to the same horizontal and vertical plane as the driver's side pedal. The driving and response are therefore similar to the driver's side pedal. The pedals, cables and pivots must have the same strength, material and durability as the original controls.

Installing our dual control system does not require any cutting or extensive modification of the vehicle at all, unlike the outdated rods and rod system used. Similarly, there will be no indication that our device is even there when it is removed from your vehicle in future. Our manual equipment is equipped with clutches, brakes and accelerator pedals. Our automatics have brakes and accelerator pedals. Gilani Engineering's dual control function can also be used with cable flying vehicles.

We also provide you with locking pins to install when you wish to inactivate the device. By installing these pins you no longer able to step on the dual control pedal, simply activate the kit by removing these pins. Our dual control is suitable for most of the mainstream vehicles such as of FordHondaHyundaiKia, NissanMazdaMitsubishi motorsSuzuki and Toyota.
