Here are useful driving tips for beginners.
- Be Confident
A safe driver is a confident driver. It is natural to be nervous at the first time. Take a good breath. Make sure you keep your emotions under control when you get behind the wheel. Mostly importantly, think of all the practice you’ve received and be confident!
- Get Comfortable
Ensure you’re comfortable with the vehicle before taking it for a spin. Know every function of your vehicle and every special feature and every special control of your vehicle. Some of these include; seat controls, radio, air conditioning, heaters, windows features, locks, how to clean the windshield, what the gauges mean, etc.
- Avoid Alcohol
Alcohol is never a good choice. This is a common road advice, never drink and drive. This will not only harm your life but also the lives of fellow drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Drive with care.
- Senses Matter
Many think vision is the only sense that you need to drive. But what about the smell of burning oil or brakes? What about siren sounds of emergency vehicles? All these senses help you to prevent a car crash or an unpleasant road experience.
- Park safe, park right
This is another important aspect of driving. Know the local traffic parking regulations and the general rules of parking. Never park blocking a gate, an entrance, another vehicle or a road. Read more about safe parking: https://hnbgeneralblog.com/2016/04/12/its-all-about-parking/
