It’s important for all drivers to stay safe on the road, however, new drivers can find it difficult knowing how. After a year of driving it can feel like you never had to learn, and were in fact born with the ability to drive a car. However, if you think back, there was a time where you not only learned how to drive but also made mistakes during the process.

Helping Learner Drivers to Stay Safe

If you know somebody who is learning to drive or has recently earned their license, below are some tips from Ace Hi Oil which experienced drivers may take for granted.

No Distractions

It doesn’t matter if you have been driving for a year or decades, distractions can and will occur and they can cause serious accidents on the road.  However, there are steps which every motorist can take to minimize the chances of this occurring while they drive. Each time that you get into the vehicle and switch on the engine:
  • Ensure your passengers are settled.
  • Switch off the radio.
  • Finish any business you have on your cell phone, then switch it to silent and then put it out of reach and sight.
  • Feel confident that your vehicle is in good shape.
Considering the above each time that you get ready to drive is a great way to improve the driving conditions inside our vehicle and prevent distractions.

What’s the Next Turn?

Learning to drive or even driving on your own for the first time can be stressful without the added worry of trying to also navigate through a new area. Each time that you drive, instead of relying on a GPS device or app, learn the directions first and commit them to memory. Then, as you drive, use your GPS service as a secondary assist. While it may seem time-consuming, knowing the route, in particular, which lane you need to be in and any landmarks which you can utilize, is a great way to settle the nerves of a new driver and boost their confidence. Click here to buy Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil and keep your vehicle in great shape with a synthetic oil change. If you have never performed a synthetic oil change on your vehicle before, speak with a friendly expert at Ace Hi Oil by calling (888) 459-9958 for help finding the right product. Alternatively, the online store has information about the range of high-quality AMSOIL engine lubricants available.

What’s Going to Happen?

The best accident is one which doesn’t happen and, believe it or not, many of the accidents which occur each day can be prevented from occurring with a technique like defensive driving. As an example, while you drive, you likely notice other vehicles move slightly to one side of the lane seconds before the driver shows their indication to change lanes. Paying attention to this behavior and adjusting your cruising speed to allow sufficient space for the driver to merge is a great way to ensure you remain at a safe distance and prevent problems from happening.

Sleep. Don’t Drive.

If you feel tired, don’t get behind the wheel of a car and drive. Period. It may seem simple enough, however, many drivers believe that they are capable of driving when they shouldn’t be. The easiest way to prevent yourself from driving while you are drowsy is with planning. As an example, if you and your friends have a road trip coming up, plan a driving schedule, plot breaks along the route, and ensure you get a good sleep the night before.

Engine Performance

If a driver is worried about an overheating radiator or a tire which may blow at any minute then they aren’t focused on the road, which means they aren’t driving safely. Performing basic maintenance to your vehicle at home is the easiest way to keep your engine in good shape and prevent you from feeling stressed or overwhelmed as you drive. Of course, as you drive, if you do notice that any of your warning lights or sounds are alerting you to a problem, safely pull over and investigate the issue.
