Driving a car looks pretty easy. I mean, there are those pedals on the floor for “stop,” and “go,” there is the wheel for turning, and you know you need to wear your seat belt. What else to it is there? The answer? A LOT!
Driving a car is one of the most complex mental and motor tasks that a person can perform. Managing three vectors of acceleration, staying aware of the conditions, cars, and signs around you, and reacting to dangerous and unpredictable situations are all normal experiences pretty much every time you get into a car.
In today’s post from Pacific Driver Education in Gresham, we’re going to cover 10 important tips for new drivers. These tips are meant to help you keep all of the safety-oriented items and good habits at the top of your list when you get into a car, so you can go out and be a responsible driver.

Our list does not cover topics that are against the law like failure to wear your seatbelt, driving drunk, or speeding. These are illegal actions that every single driver on the road needs to obey. If you’re not remembering them, then any other tips we can give you aren’t going to do you, or the people on the road with you, much good.
