It is important that all new drivers receive as much advice as possible to help them stay safe while driving on the road, both during lessons and on their own.

Once you have been driving for a few years it can start to feel as though you never actually learned the task, and instead were simply born knowing how to drive. However, if you think back then you will remember that you not only did spend the time learning how to drive, but you also made some mistakes along the way.

Great Tips for Learner Drivers

If somebody in your home or extended family is learning how to drive or has recently earned their license and will soon start driving without supervision, Allons Synthetics has some great tips for you to share with them.

The Road Isn’t a Racetrack

All new drivers are certain that they aren’t going to drive competitively. However, once they are on the road alone, it can be all too easy for this behavior to come out. For example:
  • Always needing to be first to the next intersection.
  • Preventing other cars from merging into your lane.
  • Trying to get in front of other drivers instead of falling behind.
All of these behaviors result in new drivers taking unnecessary risks and speeding. Instead of worry about whether other drivers are going to wait at the next red light for 5 seconds longer than you, worry about the safety of you and your passengers and think about getting you all to your destination safely.

Where Will You Be Going?

Managing gears, pedals, indicators, and the steering wheel, driving can be a stressful enough task for a new driver without the added worry of trying to navigate through a new area by reading street signs as they drive. Before driving through a new area or on new roads, look at the map online and learn not only the directions and where you need to turn, but also any specific lanes which you will need to be in to ensure you can make a turn or take an exit. Having this knowledge can help new drivers to feel confident and more relaxed on the road, allowing them to focus on the road and driving.

Create a Distraction-Free Zone

Any driver, no matter their experience, can be affected by distractions while driving. For this reason, new drivers need to take steps to be extra cautious. Each time that you are ready to start your vehicle, consider these points:
  • Switch off the radio.
  • Have your passengers settled or are they rowdy?
  • Finish your texts and social media posts, then switch off your phone.
  • Are there are mechanical issues with the vehicle?
Thinking about these points is a great way to prevent common distractions from occurring while you drive.

You Can’t Drive and Sleep

When it comes to choosing between driving or sleeping, you can’t choose both. If you feel sleepy or even slightly drowsy then you shouldn’t be driving a vehicle. Driving in this state is not only dangerous and irresponsible but also preventable. As an example, if you and your friends are planning a road trip:
  • Create a driving schedule to split the task.
  • Look for interesting places along the way to take breaks and refresh.
  • Be sure you get a good sleep before your drive. This could be the night before or a nap in the afternoon.
If you are already on the road and you start to feel yourself becoming tired, don’t hesitate to ask one of the other drivers to take their shift early, and you can sleep and help out at the end of their shift. Alternatively, pull over safely and take a short nap.
