One major mistake can fail your exam. Practice to perfection.

Driving is one art which has to be perfect. This is due to the fact that so much depends on the driver when he takes to the road. The need for the driver to be good at driving is important to the safety of every other person on the road at that particular point in time. With this in mind, most individuals would have to go through a driving test which would ensure that they are qualified to drive in their region. However, most people find it difficult to pass these tests due to the presence of some bad habits they have while driving. If you are stuck in this same situation, here are some habits you might want to change before your next driving tests;

  • TRAFFIC SIGNS AND REGULATIONS: one of the most important parts of driving is the regulatory rules and signs. Failure to understand how they work and take notice of them can have a bad ending when you are on the road. Therefore, when you are taking your driving test as a newcomer, taking time to learn how the traffic signs and regulations work can prove to be quite useful to prove that you are ready to drive.
  • TAILGATING; there is nothing more annoying to another driver than another tailgating him! The truth is that no one likes when someone is following too closely for their comfort. Tailgating can easily lead to another accident or a crash if there is an abrupt stop. There is not enough time to reach effectively to that kind of situation and you would most likely find yourself hitting the driver in front. For newcomers, this may seem attractive but it is just another bad habit which is standing between you and passing your final test as a driver.
  • TURN SIGNALS: there is nothing more confusing to another driver than the person in front of them turning abruptly without the appropriate indication. For this reason, it is important that you make it a point to always use your turn signals when you are driving. It would allow you to be able to avoid accidents which are caused by confusion on the road. It would allow you to ultimately pass your driving examination. No other thing can bring such satisfaction to a newcomer.
  • SPEED LIMITS: during driving tests, going past the speed limits is one thing which can lead to you failing the test. Over speeding is one of the main problems on the road and most teachers would fail you if you over speed as it is a sensitive matter. Try to keep a moderate pace during your driving test. This would prove to be crucial both now and in the future.

Driving tests are an important part of the driving process. It is the only way in which we can be sure that the drivers on the roads are competent enough. Driving is after all a serious matter.

A successful G2 Road Test Pass. However, the real learning starts after you pass.

There is this excitement which comes when you are finally old enough to own and drive a car in your country. You would most likely feel that as a teenager, you are finally being trusted with more responsibility. However, in many countries of the world, this trust is often betrayed as most teenagers are estimated to be the highest causes of accidents on the road. They have therefore been branded as the most dangerous set of drivers on the road, especially on the western road. There are many reasons why teen misbehave while they are driving even on busy highways. Here are some of the reasons;

  • INEXPERIENCE: while the excitement to own a car and be allowed to drive as a teenager can be so strong, the lack of experience can be dangerous. These teenagers have never been exposed to certain situations on the road. Thus, the probability of them making mistakes in these situations is quite high. It is also a known fact that most teenagers tend to act before they have thought through a particular situation well. All this makes it quite easy for an accident to occur.
  • OVER SPEEDING: research which has been conducted various times have suggested that one thing which teenagers who drive are known for is over speeding. They are more likely to take part in driving habits which are risky and fatal in nature. This combined with the fact that they are not quite experienced makes it quite easy for them to have an accident on the road. They are also prone to tailgate while driving when compared to other sets of drivers. When you over speed, you would have less time to react to situations which can prove to be disastrous when driving. These situations would include the sudden presence of motorists and so much more.
  • ALCOHOL AND THE ABUSE OF DRUGS: one phenomenon which has ravaged many teenagers who are living in the world today is the influence of alcohol and drug abuse. One of the leading causes of death in Canada is the influence of drugs while driving. Teenagers are more likely to engage in such activities while they are driving. This would no doubt lead to consequences which would be unfavorable to everyone on the road.
  • ABSENCE OF SEAT BELTS: it is estimated that a large percentage of teenagers who use the roads do not make use of the seat-belts which have been given to them. This absence has often led to a lot of injuries which would have been prevented if seat belts were being used. It is always advised that you make use of the seat belts given to you at all time. It is your only saviour if something should happen to you while you are driving.

This shows teenagers are at a higher risk while they are driving. It is important for all teenagers to be taught just how important it is to drive safely on the road. This would lead to a reduction in the number of accidents that take place every year.
