Class 5, 7 (Driving Tips)

  • Make sure your seatbelt is snugly fastened over your chest and low across your hips. The shoulder strap should never be worn behind the back, under the arm, or when the seat is reclined, as doing so could result in serious internal damage in the event of an accident. The lap belt should be snug and placed below the infant for pregnant women.
  • During the day, if your automobile does not have automatic daytime running lights, you should drive with the low beams on.
  • The tail lights are not turned on by daytime running lights. Never use them while driving at night or in bad visibility.
  • The clutch is operated with your left foot, while the brake and gas pedals are operated with your right foot. You should keep doing this until you can easily locate each pedal. This will enable speedy response in an emergency.
  • When driving, always wear shoes to ensure proper contact with the brake and accelerator. Avoid wearing heels or platform soles when driving.
  • When the tires are cold, check the pressure. For information on the recommended inflation level, consult the owner’s manual or the sticker on the driver’s door. The numbers on the side of the tire should not be used.
  • Good driving practices can preserve your automobile from wear and tear, cut your fuel consumption by up to 30%, and lower emissions.
  • The same rules apply to uncontrolled intersections, including unmarked T-intersections.
  • You must obey the instructions of anyone controlling the flow of traffic.
  • On occasion, traffic signals fail to function properly. Either one or all four lights may go off or begin to flash. If this occurs, treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
  • The light can be stale if you don’t witness it change green. You ought to be ready to halt.
  • It is forbidden to cross a crosswalk or back up into an intersection.
  • It’s always preferable to give the other person the right-of-way if there is any doubt regarding who has it or if there is any possibility of a collision.
  • Always give way to emergency vehicles with flashing lights and sirens. Keep a traffic circle or roundabout clear if an emergency vehicle is approaching. Before entering the traffic circle or roundabout, stop for the emergency vehicle, or depart first and then stop for the emergency vehicle.
  • Move your vehicle to the right lane and enter the right lane of the cross street to make a right turn. Road signs at some crossroads indicate that you can turn right from the center lane.
  • Turning lanes enable you to wait for a secure opening without obstructing passing traffic. If you are turning left, only use the lane with the arrows.
  • When turning left, motorists in both directions use this center lane. Before you enter this lane, be sure there is enough room. Keep an eye out for automobiles travelling the other way.
  • Whenever you need to cross a bicycle lane, make sure to indicate well in advance and give way to all cyclists.
  • Avoid lane changes at intersections. You might mislead other motorists and result in an accident.
  • It’s against the law to accelerate while someone is attempting to pass you. Slow down and give the other driver space so they can enter your lane again.
  • You can see how far it is to the next passing lane on a sign. Unless you are passing, stay to the right.
  • When the passing lane is going to terminate, a sign will let you know. The passing lane and the right lane must combine before the passing lane comes to an end.
  • It’s usually safer to reverse into a stall when parking, so you won’t have to back out. Even better, if there isn’t a barrier between two empty facing stalls, drive past the first one into the second one so your car is facing forward. Turn the wheels to the right when parking upwards next to a rolling curb or a curb that may be mounted. The height of this curb is insufficient to prevent a car from rolling back into oncoming traffic.
  • You can prevent unexpected pauses that boost your fuel usage by keeping your eyes forward.
  • Things that are directly in front of you and in the Centre of your field of view are the easiest to see. However, it’s crucial to focus on details that aren’t in your line of sight. With peripheral vision, you can see more than what is directly in front of you.
  • Before you shift your car into another lane or in a different direction, do a shoulder check to be sure your blind spot is clean. At least 45 degrees of your gaze should be directed in the direction of your intended movement. Check over your right shoulder before moving to the right. Check over your left shoulder before moving to the left.
  • If vision is poor, be sure to quickly sound your horn before beginning to reverse.
  • Two of the many objects that could obstruct your vision of a crossroads and approaching traffic are bushes and heavy cars.
  • Never pass when a hill’s summit is in sight. You have no idea what dangers might lie on the hill’s opposite side.
  • Consistent speeding reduces fuel consumption. Changing your speed abruptly or exceeding the posted speed limit will increase your gasoline usage.
  • Reduce your speed before entering a curve so that you can navigate it without applying the brakes. As soon as you get to the middle, start to speed up and start straightening your wheels to help you round the curve.
  • Leave roughly a car’s length between your vehicle and the one in front of you when you stop behind another vehicle at an intersection. You will have space to maneuvers if you need it in this manner. When stopped right behind a big car, give more room.
  • You can prevent abrupt stops and changes in speed by maintaining good space margins, looking ahead, and anticipating potential road dangers. Additionally, these safe driving practices save fuel consumption.
  • When driving on a multilane highway, try to give oneself a means to get away. After that, you can move into another lane if something happens in front to stay out of harm’s way.
  • Did you know that, under ideal circumstances, it takes the majority of vehicles at a junction approximately: two seconds each lane to proceed straight; five seconds to turn right and reach a speed of 50 km/h; and seven seconds to turn left and reach a speed of 50 km/h. (allow extra time if you need to cross several lanes). Keep in mind to add two extra seconds for security.
