Learning how to drive is harder than it looks. There's more to it than sitting behind the wheel and pressing the gas pedal. Driving lessons are essential, of course. Teaching yourself will most assuredly end in disaster. Keep the following rules and suggestions in mind when you start driving.
- Get a driver's license or learner's permit. Before you drive or acquire insurance, you'll need to pass a written driver's test from the Department of Motor Vehicles (in the U.S.). And once you have your license, you should always carry it with you.
- Make sure you have driver's insurance. There are all sorts of insurance companies and different rates available. Pick one that suits your needs the best. And always carry proof of insurance in your wallet or purse.
- Prepare yourself for the experience! You'll be driving on the road with thousands of other drivers. You need to be courteous and respectful of everyone else on the road.
- Always err on the side of caution. Thousands of people die in auto accidents every year. Be safe and follow all the rules and regulations. And if you see someone flagrantly violating the law, simply stay out of their way.
- Be prepared. If you'll be driving on the highway or on a bridge, make sure you have cash/coins for toll fees. If you're going to be parking your car on the street, make sure you have money for parking meters.
And Similarly, if you're driving in the winter, make sure your car is equipped with the proper tools for an emergency. The same goes for driving in the heat of summer.
And when you storage it, protect your car is also important. A car cover can help you keeping your car clean and not wet from rain、water、dust and other trash.
