**A contributed post as written for The Safe Driver
It can be tough for new drivers. Whether you’re just starting to learn or you’re on the road on your own, there are a few things you need to remember. Read on to find out what they are!
- Never Give In To Peer Pressure
Peer pressure is one of the number one things that causes accidents. When young people are out driving with friends, the temptation to show off their skills is high. This may be with loud music, driving at silly speeds, or doing other things that can cause accidents and aren’t safe. Always drive sensibly, the way you’ve learnt to drive. If you don’t, it could cost lives.
- Taking Your Eyes Off The Road For A Split Second Can Change Everything
Taking your eyes off the road for a split second can really change everything. Rid yourself of all distractions, including your phone. Don’t be tempted to glance at messages – leave your phone in the glovebox! Be aware of other distractions too, as it isn’t just your phone that could cause a problem.
- The Real Learning Starts When You’re On Your Own
The real learning starts when you go out on your own, not when you start taking lessons. It’s very scary and exciting all at the same time. However, if you limit distractions and remember what you learned in your lessons, you should be fine. If you haven’t yet started learning at all, it’s about time you got familiar with the process.
