12 tips to help new drivers

Even the most skillful drivers aren’t always capable to recognize all the subtleties and nuances that make driving easier. A driving school will help you to build up your capabilities and skills.

Bright side shows you how to feel comfortable driving.

Verify that all mirrors have been adjusted properly.

Blind spots can appear if your mirrors aren’t properly adjusted. Blind spots can be a blind spot, which is an area of the road you are unable to see. This could cause you to miss cars in the next traffic lane. In order to reduce blind spots, make sure your side-view reflectors are adjusted so you don’t see your car. You can check for a blind spot by driving past another car in reverse and looking in your sideview mirror. You should be able to see the blind spot with your peripheral vision once it has been removed from the scene.

Adjust the rear-view reflector so you can see through it. While adjusting your mirrors, it is important that you are in the same driving position as before.

Learn to sense where the wheels are.

To avoid parking in potholes, and also to make sure you don’t scratch your hubcaps during parking, it is important to learn how to feel the wheels. You can take a empty plastic bottle and place it on the pavement. Move your left and right front wheel in turn. You can hear the bottle crackle when you open the window.

Use your mirrors and windows to guide you.

Perpendicular parking requires that you stop when you see the curb beneath the side mirror. This will ensure that the curb is not too far away and that you don’t scratch the bumper.

Make sure to not scratch the hubcaps when parallel parking. Apply a piece duct tape in a color to the windshield. When the mark meets the curb line, you can stop. Parallel parking in reverse is preferable. The curb can be seen in the side-view reflectors, so it won’t be too close.

After you have driven through a puddle of water, make sure to dry your brakes.

You should slow down, avoid maneuvering and maintain your speed before you get to the smallest of puddles . There is a possibility of water entering the ignition system and causing the engine to stall if you drive fast. aquaplaning may also start — this is when your car loses traction and you lose control.

Do not rev up your engine after you have passed a large puddle. First dry the brakes by pressing the gas pedal and then pressing the brake pedal several times . Water evaporates from brake pads because friction causes heat.


Pay attention to taller cars that may be in front of your car.

You should be aware of other vehicles as well as the one in front. Drivers with taller vehicles (trucks or buses) are able to see more clearly. If they change lanes at the same time, it is likely they saw a vehicle accident or another type of roadblock. Follow their example and change lanes.

Turn on the high beams if your car isn’t starting.

Sometimes the car won’t turn on at all in winter. You should heat your car by switching on the high beams. It is possible for the indicator and radio to work.

Nighttime, lower your rearview mirror.

A standard rear-view camera has two modes. One is day mode, the other night mode. Many drivers don’t realize this. To prevent being blinded behind a car, adjust the angle by pulling the lever underneath the mirror.

Turn on the air conditioner.

Even if the air conditioner isn’t being used (for instance, in winter), make sure to turn it on for a short time. If you don’t, coolant can seep out and your tubes will dry.

Regularly use the hand brake.

Even if you don’t practice angle parking, it is important to use your hand brake frequently to keep the engine running. Extremely cold is an exception. To ensure that your brake pads do not freeze, it is best to avoid using the handbrake in these conditions.

If you see a car slowing down in the next lane, please follow their lead.

If you spot a car slowing down in a nearby lane, it is advisable to do so. The driver may be trying to allow a pedestrian/animal through.

Do not be fooled by low speeds.

On a straight line, speeds seem to be 2x lower than they really are. You should slow down before turning the car around. Otherwise, it may skid.

Do not turn the wheel before you make a left turn.

It is dangerous to start turning the wheels before you make a turn. They must remain in their initial position. If you are hit by a car from the rear, you may be forced to go in the opposite direction and end up hitting other cars.
