  3. 3. Whether you take a course in driving, which is really recommended, or you learn on your own, there are certain fundamentals, which will hold you in good stead as you are learning to drive. The first item of business is to get to know the equipment, so just sit in the driver’s seat, and have someone describe all of the gadgets to you. More info on: http://www.rightwaydriving.com.au/
  4. 4. Items that you will need to know about include the ignition switch, the steering wheel, the accelerator, the shift lever, the brakes, the turn signal, and all of the mirrors. That seems like pretty basic stuff, because everyone knows all about those things. More info on: http://www.rightwaydriving.com.au/
  5. 5. It is a good idea with another person who is a driver already, to take a short drive in a parking lot or somewhere where there is no traffic to just get use to using all of the just mentioned items while you are actually moving. More info on: http://www.rightwaydriving.com.au/
  6. 6. Learn how to start from a standing stop, and how much you press the accelerator to start slowly, and then increase speed. Get the feel of how hard to press the brake when you want to slow down or stop. Use the brakes, flick the turn signal, etc. Just get a good feel for the car.

  7. 7. Learn how to put the car in reverse, and how to turn while you are backing up. Learn to look in the mirrors, the one in the middle of the windshield and the two on each side of the car so you can see what is coming from in back of you. Learn how and when to use the turn signals. More info on: http://www.rightwaydriving.com.au/
  8. 8. The main thing that you want to take away while you are practicing is how to have control of your vehicle at all time. Learn what speed is the best for each situation and learn to always have an escape route if an emergency crops up. More info on: http://www.rightwaydriving.com.au/
