Learning from highly rated driving school Warrington will give you advantages and benefits in the long run as it will provide you safe driving skills. Here are the 6 common mistakes people do when they start driving :
1. Slow driving or excessive speed
Driving too slowly on the roads can be dangerous to other drivers as well as driving too fast. If you are struggling with this, try practising on empty roads. It will help you build up your confidence and speed.
2. Forgetting to use the indicators
When we start driving we’re often so busy concentrating on the road that we forgot about what we’re doing inside the car. With so much tension it is easy to forget to indicate but rembering to indicate is extremely important. It lets other drivers know exactly what you are planning to do.
3. Getting mixed up at traffic lights
Learner drivers can be so busy paying attention to other factors that they don’t realise that they have crossed through a red signal. On the other hand they can become so nervous sometimes that they brake on a green signal. In both the cases failing to observe a traffic light can be dangerous.
4. Not checking mirrors or blind spots
Observation is one of the key skills in driving. Correct use of mirrors is a vital part of observation on the road. Make sure you always check your mirrors and blind spot before hitting the road.
5.Crossing your hands over the steering wheel
When you use the steering wheel you should always keep your hands at ‘ten to two’ at all times. When you use the wheel you should always feed the wheel through your hands rather than crossing your hands over. This way you will get firmer & safer control over your wheel.
6. Cutting people up on the roundabouts
When you first start driving roundabouts it will feel horrible, confusing and complicated until an unless you know the rules. Most important rule is to stay on the lane. You should only move lanes if you’re about to take the next turning off and need to move into the left lane. Always wait before you completely cross the junction before your turning and use your mirrors and signals to help you in the process of not cutting anyone up on the roundabouts.
