Life After Your Test: A Few Driving Tips

Passing your test can mean a new lease of life for you, as well as a sense of independence. However it is important to remember that with indepence comes responsibility. Just because you have passed your test it does not mean that you should stop learning, brushing up on your driving knowledge and improving your motoring skills.

Remember our pass plus scheme which will not only improve your skills further but can also get you a considerable discount on your car insurance. This consists of a minimum of 6 hours' driving tuition, which includes motorway driving, nighttime driving, all weather driving (when appropriate), and much more.

Here are a few more tips to help you keep on top of your driving and to continue to improve as a driver.

Don't give way to emotion.

It is easy to become angered when driving. Even the best drivers make mistakes and this can be frustrating. But it is important to learn to cool your temper and not let rage get the better of you. Becoming angry affects your decision making skills and can put other drivers at risk. In this situation, it is always better to remain calm, and if necessary pull over to the side of the road and take a breather.

Drink driving - don't chance it.

This should be blatantly obvious to point out to anybody wishing to drive. But we can not re-iterate it enough - don't mix alcohol and driving. Although there is a legal limit in place, many people find it easier to avoid alcohol fullstop when driving. You may be able to have one drink and remain within the legal limit, but not having that drink in the first place eliminates the temptation to have another one.

No ostriches in the vehicle.

Studies have shown that it is much more difficult to drive if you have an ostrich in the vehicle. Ostriches are vicious animals and do not react well to being confined in small spaces. They may lash out at you while driving. (We are joking).

  1. Man this is exactly like the driving school in North Vancouver. Kind of gives you comfort though. We learn the same things.

  2. I agree, these are what we should keep in mind when driving. Above all is defensive driving or safety first.

  3. I remember when I went to driving school in Colorado Springs CO. It was such a pain learning to drive in the snow, but I still think it would be easier than learning to drive on the wrong side of the road!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these tips! I will have to show this to my daughter. She just got her license and I am worried that she is getting too confident. I don't want her to get too distracted.

  5. I agree that after driving school it is important to maintain good driving habits. The more distractions you have in the car the harder it is to focus on the task at hand. That is why I try and make sure the music isn't too loud and too many people aren't in the car with me. http://www.valleydrivingschool.com/contact-us/uncategorised/contact-us

  6. These are some great tips. I think that you don't have to have just gotten your license to remember these tips. It's good for all drivers to have a refresher. There really are a lot of things to remember when driving.

  7. My sister is thinking about putting her son in driving school. I believe that it would be an excellent idea. He is not yet 16, but the better he goes in, the better driver he will be. http://www.nsds.ca/en/class_1_driving_school_vancouver_surrey_bc_training.html

  12. For me passing a test was not difficult task as I took training from Port Macquarie Driving School. But the main part is to follow the rules that my trainer teaches me during driving lessons. I am really happy and proud to say that I am following every rule of driving.

  14. Affordable pre-packaged safety kits can be purchased at practically any tire store and most discount department stores. The best include an air compressor powered by a cigarette lighter or power port, a flashlight, jumper cables, reflectors, a spare lug wrench, first aid kit, and even a collapsible shovel. With a quick trip to any dollar discount store you can also add other inexpensive items that can really make a difference during a winter driving emergency.
