Driving with confidence, attention and while keeping in mind all the technicalities make a man pro for his car. In the modern world, many deaths are occurring due to the incapability of driving by ignoring the tricky turns, high-speed dilemmas and using distractive technology. Reaching a destination a bit late is alright instead of never reaching. Along with the driver, the person sitting next to him has the responsibility to pay attention to traffic, turns, distance from the car above, etc. This is so because the next seat partner of the driver is the one who keeps him attentive and is not supposed to be busy somewhere else. Moreover, in night times driver tends to fall asleep especially driving at highways, due to which serious deadly accidents occur. These can be avoided by the person sitting next to the driver because of being and keeping the other one attentive. Driving overall can be made easier by having a fair estimate of the longevity and depth of the turn, by keeping a safe distance from the car ahead defined as a buffer zone, keeping right indicator on timely, slowing the speed in habitat area, keeping the car in right lane according to the speed at highway. Moreover in general routine, while driving at roads in your city, breaks should go easy instead of sudden happening. Together with driving at roads, high ways, in speed, at normal speed, etc, correctly parking a car is the most important. The way a driver has parked his car shows his competence. As far as the permission of driving legally is concerned, it requires state permission called driving license and before that learner license is granted to the person. Mostly 18 is the set age in many states to legally apply for the license. All of the essentials of driving need practice and skills training available even online such as driving schools ezlicense. This provides you the opportunity to select the instructor and see his car type along with his skill set including ratings and reviews by the clients of him. An instructor can be changed anytime after selecting and can be booked any time according to his and your schedule. At the provided address, he then is supposed to be reached timely. The driving can be learned in your car or the instructor’s car. Pre-test lessons are also included in the training sessions. The most important incentive includes null charges if the person has not learned significantly from the instructor that shows the proficiency of the online teachings. WAYS TO MAKE DRIVING EASIER Learning from the proficient resource and practicing regularly makes a man perfect in any task, so is the driving. Once the driver has obtained a license, it then depends on his attentiveness and sharp mindedness that how he handles the tricky and mind diverting situations while driving. Driving is challenging, tricky and risky because, with one wrong move, a driver with the car along with the persons sitting in has a risk of life. Ways of how a person can avoid any accident, an unpleasant incident of driving are mentioned below. 1. Whether the person is driving manual or automatic, adjusting his legs, arms and neck along with the pedals, speed, brake, gears are necessary. This provides him with an edge over the seating. Mostly with the adjusting lever, most cars have beneath the seat back and the seat can be dragged forward and backward according to the height and comfort of the driver. This is the basic step a driver should do not to get tired and uncomfortable in long driving. Along with the right and comfortable adjustment, a driver must tie the seat belt before starting driving. 2. Side mirror adjustment is the other thing that makes the driving easy for switching lanes, merging in traffic and parking. In many modern high technologically equipped cars, there is an alert notification if a blind spot comes. This can be in the form of light indicating or audio notifications as well. The important mirrors in the cars are names as a rearview mirror and two side mirrors on both sides. A rearview mirror allows seeing exactly behind the car while the other allows help in overcoming blind spots. 3. The driver should let himself familiarize himself with the pedals including speed and break in automatic cars and should use one foot preferably right to have control over them. One foot should be used to avoid accidentally pressing both speed and break at once in panic situations. He should have a fair idea of gear stick as well. Gear stick includes parking, reverse, neutral and drive gears. A driver should have a clear idea of the dashboard features of his car including speedometer defining speed in mph or kph, fuel gauge indicating how much fuel is left, hotness of the engine, etc. fuel remaining indication is either a needle switching from full side to the empty side or a proper battery remaining system just like the mobile battery cells indicating the usage and emptiness of the fuel. 4. Gadgets like • multi-viewing cameras allowing the car to reverse safely and move forward with a safe distance • Adaptive cruise control systems to set the speed while traveling and setting the safe distance speed for the car ahead, • GPS allowing the driver to reach the destination through a shorter route that is unknown to him, • seatbelt alert while driving if the person himself has forgotten of it, • Bluetooth systems allowing the driver to play music, etc are the standard feature in modern cars that not just make driving easier but fun as well. 5. Driving a car while ignoring road hazards, over-speeding dangers, busy routine and overtaking are some of the features enlisted in aggressive driving features. Skilled and professional schools of driving, however, teach the exact opposite of what has been defined above. The course and technique, however, is known as defensive driving. While buying a person should keep safety his priority as a car with airbags, child locks, safer seat belts, etc is way better than others. Defensive driving includes a timely indication of turning, slowing down, emergency, etc. breaking off a signal is never a good idea as passengers, by-cycles and other route cars are supposed to pass when the signal is red. Breaking a signal can cause a serious accident resulting in never healing regret. A driver should adaptively adjust with weather and heights, etc. most importantly avoiding drive while drunk and in ill health conditions is the best decision a driver can make. CONCLUSION A driver can make driving easier with the perfect decisions he makes for himself and his car while driving. There are many online schools teaching driving, but the decisions a driver makes on-road reflects his competency. His familiarization, adjustment according to the features of the car is the basic thing making driving easier. While others include equipping modern gadgets, defensive and sensible driving, etc that make a driver successful and driving easier for him.
