Dual controls are a type of vehicle modification Pedals that allow the front passenger of the car to control the primary functions of the vehicle such as the Brake, Accelerator and Clutch. This works by connecting the front passenger controls to the drivers controls allowing the front passenger to control the car and are used to assist Driving Instructors while teaching learner drivers how to drive. It is mandated that all NSW driving schools have dual brakes as an assistive measure at a minimum.
Here at Gilani Engineering our industry leading engineers are able to install all types of dual control pedals including dual brakes, dual accelerators, dual clutches in all combinations. A separate wire is connected for each dual control pedal.
Brake only dual control pedal installations are the most common type of vehicle modifications used by driving instructors and can be installed in both manual and automatic cars. Usually, the drivers brake pedal is connected directly to a cable that winds around the housing pulley block that manually pushes the brake and stops the movement of the wheels every time the driver steps on the brake pedal. Our specialist engineers connect a cable from the front passenger side brake pedal directly to the driver's housing pulley block so that every time the driving instructor sitting in the front passenger side decides to step on their dual brake, the car will slow down.
Accelerator and brake combined dual control pedal installations are a vehicle modification allowing the added safety benefits of acceleration. Gilani Engineering can install accelerator dual controls for manual or automatic vehicles. Much like the brake, the accelerator is connected to a pivot arm and when the driver steps on the accelerator pedal, the pivot arm extends and enables the brakes to unlock, thus allowing for acceleration. When our engineers install additional accelerator dual control pedals, a cable is installed connecting the front passenger's accelerator to the driver's side pivot arm so that when the driving instructor decides to accelerate, the pivot arm extends enabling the acceleration of the vehicle.
Gilani Engineering also caters to vehicles with manual transmission so you can teach your manual learners how to use the clutch whilst you are driving. Our vehicle modification team is able to install any combination of dual controls that you prefer. We install clutch dual control pedals for manual vehicles. When the driver pushes their foot down onto the clutch pedal, the fork lever contracts and pushes the release lever plate which is connected to the bottom of the release lever so the top part of the release lever locks in and stops the pressure plate and crank shaft from moving. This allows the driver to change gears or start the car moving. Gilani Engineering simply connects the cable from the front passenger clutch directly to the driver's clutch allowing driving instructors to take control of the vehicle.
