Some basic rules in driving car for learners and beginners.

1) To be familiar with your car.
The first thing is that you have to understand all the mechanical functions of your car. If you don’t know about all the mechanical function of your car then I don’t think you will be able to drive your car. Even if you try for more then hundred times. The mechanical work are like, you have to understand what clutch do. Recognize the gears schedule and learn how gears work during driving to shifting. You must know about the car function serial schedule like ABC (Accelerators, Brake and Clutch).
2) Getting a correct seat position behind the wheel.
When it comes to driving comfortably then it always depends upon how you seat in the driver’s seat. If you’re sitting style is not good, I am sure you will feel difficult in driving your car. You must seat in such a way that you see road clearly even though you have huge bonnet in front, and your sitting position is to be of 900. Sitting in 900 will help you to comfortably pedal your accelerator and clutch of your car and also see the road clearly.
3) How to keep away from distraction
This day car is very much equipped with all the techy stuff like a big screen in front of driver and many other control functions. So you may get distracted because as you are a newbie driver. I must suggest you to focus on the road other than playing with the LCD screen in front of you. If needed keep someone with you, So that they control all the techy stuff inside the car. Once you are used to with all this techy stuff you will not need anyone else.
4) How to control the steering wheel
Most people do get confused when they are driving car for the first time on the road. They are saying that how to remain in the road. So the important thing is controlling your steering wheel of your car. Many newbie driver will get confuse reading all the technical way of controlling the steering wheel. According to me you must look on the road and turn your steering wheel slowly depending upon the road. It is just so simple but many people take this in a very complicated way, So I would like to suggest you on keeping calm while driving your car.
5) How to use turn signal
Turn signal are really important and it is mostly used while changing lanes or turning your car (left or right). This is important because it will save you from many accidents. It is not that tough using turn signal while driving because the turn lever is just mounted back of the steering wheel.
- You must on the turn signal whenever you are braking the car for slowing or changing lanes.
- To turn on signal, keep your left hand on the steering wheel for flicking the signal lever down by your right hand.
- Turn signal lever will be mounted near the steering wheel bottom as long lever like gray or black color.
- Don’t worry the Turn signal generally does not make a sound, it is just a flicking light to indicate the other drivers on the road.
6) How to control Speed and using over horn
Driving a manual car in a high speed is very much risky for both experienced driver and a newbie driver. So according to me you should not cross the speed limit of the road. If you want to speed up more than you must follow the car tachometer which will give you correct indicator to speed up slowly. If your car isn’t having any tachometer then here it is.
- 1st – 10 kph
- 2nd – 25 kph
- 3rd – 40 kph
- 4th – 60 kph
- 5th – 80 kph
Horn is also very much important in any car, Because it notify the other driver of your presence in the road. Over horn is not accepted by any people because it is very irritating.
7) keeping distance from other vehicles in the road.
If you are driving a car on the road then it is obvious that you will be there in a jam. So, The most important thing you must know is up to how much closer should you go in front of your vehicle. So that you can easily accelerate when the jam is over.
Every expert says that stopping your car an inch before the vehicle. It is the best way to stop at the back of any vehicle. On doing this you will get enough space to stop. It will accelerate your car after the jam is over. But for this you have to know your bonnet length which will come only after some days experience.
