The goal of this handbook is to help you become a knowledgeable and good driver. However, it is only a reference source, covering basic driving rules and techniques. The relevant statutes should be consulted to interpret and apply the law.
Good drivers are always in control of their own actions, reactions and vehicle. Control means remaining calm and at ease behind the wheel while conducting smooth movements of the vehicle on the road and within traffic. The goal of a good driver is to disrupt traffic as little as possible.
You should become highly skilled at identifying situations that require your attention, anticipating and predicting what other drivers might do, deciding on your response and then executing your decision. Make sure you have the knowledge and the ability to control your vehicle so a small error never turns into a dangerous situation. You should be able to control your vehicle in emergencies, in a variety of weather situations, as well as on varying road conditions including very slippery or icy surfaces.
Driving is one of the few activities almost everyone practises frequently. You have the choice of being a sloppy, dangerous driver, or one who drives with precision, control and safety. If you practise basic skills and aim for consistency, you can have fun while ensuring safety for yourself and for others.
This handbook is intended to help you acquire a driver's licence. More importantly it will help you develop safe and competent driving skills.Previous page Next page
