It’s crucial for all new drivers to learn as much as possible before they start driving alone, to improve their safety on the road. Once you have been driving for a few years, it can feel as though you never really learned the skill, and were, in fact, born knowing how to drive. However, if you were to think back then you would remember that you not only put in the time to learn how to drive, but made a few mistakes along the way.

Some Great Safe Driving Tips for Learners

If there is somebody in your home or family who has recently earned their license or is learning to drive, Vaughan Distributing has some tips to share which can improve their safety on the road and can also be a great refresher for experienced drivers.

What’s the Rush?

Competitive driving behavior is something which every new driver promises they won’t do. However, it would be fair to say that all drivers have exhibited competitive driving behaviors at least once in their driving history, such as:
  • Racing to be the first to each intersection. Even for a red light.
  • Cutting off other motorists.
  • Preventing other motorists from merging into your lane.
  • Making sure you are the first vehicle to merge.
The above driving behaviors are not only irresponsible, but they are also very dangerous as they encourage new drivers to speed and take unnecessary risks. Each time that you are driving, focus your attention on getting you and your passengers to your destination safely, and nothing else.

Don’t Let Yourself Become Overwhelmed

It can be easy for learner drivers to be overwhelmed as they drive, finding it difficult to manage pedals, gears, a steering wheel, all while watching out for other road users. So why add more stress which accompanies trying to navigate a new area by looking at street signs and making last-minute exits. Before you drive to a new area or through new streets, familiarize yourself with the route, including any landmarks which you can use to help with directions and find out any specific lanes you need to be in. This can help you to feel relaxed and focused while you drive.

Prevent Distractions

Distractions can happen to anybody, no matter their driving experience, which is why it’s so important for new drivers to take steps to ensure their vehicle is as distraction-free as possible. For example, as you prepare to drive:
  • Ensure your passengers are settled.
  • Finish your text messaging and switch off your phone.
  • Switch off the radio.
  • Feel confident that your vehicle is in good shape.
These four thought-points can go a long way to reducing the number of distraction which occurs while you drive. However, if this list has reminded you of a common distraction in your vehicle, be sure you add it to your pre=driving checklist.

You Can’t Sleep While You Drive

If you are feeling tired or drowsy then you shouldn’t be behind the wheel of a car. Period. Not only is driving in this state irresponsible and dangerous, but it is also unnecessary with simple planning. As an example, if you and your friends are about to embark on a road trip:
  • Create a driving schedule and share the task.
  • Get a solid sleep prior to your driving shift.
  • Always stop and refresh your brain and stretch your body whenever you feel the need.
If you are already driving and begin to feel tired, it’s important that you don’t try to push through it. Instead, find somewhere to safely pull over and take a short nap.
