Learning to drive a car is one of the most important steps someone can take to transition into adulthood. Unfortunately, that transition always doesn’t go very smoothly. Never fear, Freedom Honda is here with tips to help new drivers embrace the world of driving.
Wear your seat belt. Vehicular safety begins before you even put your car in gear. Get into the habit of putting on your seat belt before driving. Eventually, it will become second nature.
Party like it’s 1999. As in when (most) people didn’t have cell phones. While a more experienced driver would be able to able to use new Bluetooth technology to make phone calls while driving, it is best for all drivers to completely avoid using cell phones while behind the wheel.
Limit your passengers. While laws for passengers in vehicles driven by teens vary from state to state, it’s never a good idea for novice drivers to have lots of passengers. While piling all of your friends into the car may seem harmless, it can greatly increase your risk of being in an accident.
Drive a safe car. In the event of an accident, you want to be sure that you will be protected. Luckily, Honda offers a variety of automobiles loaded with safety features.
Stay calm. Just like with anything else in life, being nervous is only going to make things worse. Remember, you can do this! The more you relax, the more you’ll be able to focus on the road.
