Driver Settings
■ Your seat should be adjusted so
that there’s a slight bend at the
elbow while gripping the wheel.
■ Think of the wheel as a face
clock- your hands should be
positioned at either 10 O’clock
and 2 O’clock, or 3 O’clock and
9 O’clock
■ Grip the wheel tightly enough so
your hand don’t slide off.
■ Have your side mirrors adjusted
so the back door handles are
just visible, or angled to reduce
blind spots.
AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640
Adjusting Side Mirrors for Blind Spots
■ When adjusting your blind spots, park your car and have
someone stand in your blind spots.
■ Adjust the side mirrors until you can see the person.
■ Check your mirrors to see which spots still remain invisible, then
re-adjust and check again.

Merging
■ Merging requires your attention to
a few different factors.
■ When the traffic is moving at
posted speeds, use the
acceleration lane to speed up and
match traffic flow.
■ In doing so, use your turn signal
and look for an adequate opening
where you can smoothly merge.
■ During heavy traffic, move down
the ramp slowly and wait for an
adequate opening.
■ Avoid stopping at the bottom of
entrance ramps because it can
disrupt the flow of traffic.
Intersections
■ Avoid closely following large
vehicles through intersections
with stoplights. It’s very difficult
to see light changes.
■ Ensure you have clear view of
everything before proceeding.
■ During a left turn, slow down
and yield if there is not a green
arrow.
■ Don’t accelerated until you’re
ready to move; if your vehicle is
hit from behind, it could push
you into oncoming traffic.
AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640
4 Way Stops
■ The first vehicle to arrive at
an intersection with a four-
way stop (whether sign or
traffic light) should be first to
go.
■ The general rule is that the
driver to the right has the
right-of-way if two cars arrive
at the same time.
■ Proceed with caution in case
another driver doesn’t follow
the correct procedure.

  • 2. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 Driver Settings ■ Your seat should be adjusted so that there’s a slight bend at the elbow while gripping the wheel. ■ Think of the wheel as a face clock- your hands should be positioned at either 10 O’clock and 2 O’clock, or 3 O’clock and 9 O’clock ■ Grip the wheel tightly enough so your hand don’t slide off. ■ Have your side mirrors adjusted so the back door handles are just visible, or angled to reduce blind spots.
  • 3. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 Adjusting Side Mirrors for Blind Spots ■ When adjusting your blind spots, park your car and have someone stand in your blind spots. ■ Adjust the side mirrors until you can see the person. ■ Check your mirrors to see which spots still remain invisible, then re-adjust and check again.
  • 4. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 Merging ■ Merging requires your attention to a few different factors. ■ When the traffic is moving at posted speeds, use the acceleration lane to speed up and match traffic flow. ■ In doing so, use your turn signal and look for an adequate opening where you can smoothly merge. ■ During heavy traffic, move down the ramp slowly and wait for an adequate opening. ■ Avoid stopping at the bottom of entrance ramps because it can disrupt the flow of traffic.
  • 5. Intersections ■ Avoid closely following large vehicles through intersections with stoplights. It’s very difficult to see light changes. ■ Ensure you have clear view of everything before proceeding. ■ During a left turn, slow down and yield if there is not a green arrow. ■ Don’t accelerated until you’re ready to move; if your vehicle is hit from behind, it could push you into oncoming traffic.
  • 6. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 4 Way Stops ■ The first vehicle to arrive at an intersection with a four- way stop (whether sign or traffic light) should be first to go. ■ The general rule is that the driver to the right has the right-of-way if two cars arrive at the same time. ■ Proceed with caution in case another driver doesn’t follow the correct procedure.
  • 7. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 Vehicle Maintenance ■ Vehicle that haven’t had adequate maintenance can cause car crashes. ■ Maintain the proper air pressure in your tires to prevent blow-outs or flat tires. ■ Wiper blades should be changed regularly. ■ Your owner’s manual should have a maintenance schedule which can help you plan necessary maintenance.
  • 8. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 Tire and Wheel Maintenance ■ Check tire (including spare) air pressure regularly; at least once a month. ■ Check for: – Uneven wear patterns – Cracks – Foreign objects – Other signs of wear – All tire valves have valve caps. – Pressure before a long trip. ■ Check tire info placard for maximum recommended load of your vehicle. ■ When towing a trailer, some weight of loaded trailer is transferred to vehicle, so ensure it complies with the max.
  • 9. AtlanticTraining.com • (800) 975-7640 Flat Tire/Blowout on the Highway At the first sign of trouble: 1. Firmly grip the steering wheel 2. Do not slam on brakes 3.
