Passing your driving test is just the beginning. Once you obtain your licence the best way to improve driver confidence is to gain valuable experience out on the open road.
The aim is to become a safe and responsible driver and we want to show you how in this latest blog.
Speeding is for fools. It’s reckless, it puts your life in danger, it puts other road users in danger, endangers the lives of pedestrians and speeding tots up points on your licence as well.
Slow down, stick to the speed limits and think about the outcomes of your actions, there’s nothing flash about driving fast!
Read the road
One of the ways to become a safer and confident driver is to read the road ahead so you can anticipate dangers before they become a problem.
Don’t just view what’s happening in front of your bonnet. Look further ahead, check for traffic slowing down, pedestrians that might be about to step into the road, or cars that are attempting to join the flow of traffic from side roads.
Learn how to read the road and this is an invaluable tool.
Be aware of the space around your vehicle. On motorways leave plenty of room between your car and the vehicle in front, adhere to the two second rule to give yourself time to brake.
Look at the space next to you as well, double check before you pull out into another lane, is it clear or is there another car in the way?
Check road signs
Keep looking for mandatory and information signs whenever you make a journey. They’ll tell you about hazards, warn you about restrictions, and are there to help you become a safe driver.
Maintain your car
You might be the safest driver in the world but that counts for nothing if you fail to maintain your car.
