It’s important that all new drivers receive as much help as possible to ensure they are safe on the road.

If you have been driving for a number of years then it’s likely that you have forgotten all about your driving lessons, instead just considering that you were born with the skill. However, if you think back, not only did you have to put in the time to learn how to drive, you probably made a few mistakes along the way.

Safe Driving Tips

If somebody in your home or your family is learning how to drive or is lucky enough to have recently obtained their license, below are some great tips from Tarheel Synthetics for you to share which can help new drivers stay safe on the road

What’s the Prize?

Driving competitively is something that all new drivers say they won’t do. After all, what’s the rush to get to the next red light? Despite this, all drivers are guilty of exhibiting some of these behaviors during their time behind the wheel, such as:
  • Racing to arrive at the intersection first.
  • Not allowing somebody to pass you.
  • Cutting in front of other motorists.
  • Making sure you are the first car to merge.
All of these behaviors encourage drivers to speed and make mistakes while driving. Each time that you drive, instead of focusing on how fast other vehicles are going, focus on getting you and your passengers to your destination safely.

Know Your Route

Many learner drivers get themselves into trouble because they become flustered while driving. After all, for a new driver, managing pedals, gears, turning the wheel, indicating, and looking for other motorists and pedestrians is a stressful set of tasks. So why add in the added worry of trying to read street signs and merge lanes at the last minute? Before you travel to or through a new area, work out your route and learn it. In particular, learn any landmarks which you can use as direction indicators and any places where you need to be in a specific lane in order to take an exit or turn. Knowing this can help drivers to feel more comfortable and confident while they drive.

No More Distractions

At any time, on any road, in any weather conditions, distractions can occur. Even if you are the most experienced driver around. For this reason, it’s important for all new drivers to do what they can to reduce distractions while they drive. Each time that you get into your car and switch on the engine, consider these points:
  • Are your passengers settled?
  • Finish texting and switch off your phone.
  • Switch off the radio.
Thinking about three points is all it takes to reduce common distractions from happening while you drive and allow you to keep your focus on the road.

Don’t Sleep and Drive

If you wanted to eat, you would eat. So if you are feeling tired, why would you get into your vehicle and drive? Driving tired or drowsy is not only dangerous and irresponsible but it also entirely avoidable with planning. As an example, if you are planning a road trip with your friends:
  • Use a driving schedule to split the task.
  • Get a good sleep before your driving shift.
  • Stop along the way as many times as you like to rest and refresh your body and brain.
If you are driving and find yourself becoming tired, don’t risk trying to push through it. Instead, pull over safely and take a short nap until you are ready to drive again.
