Driving Tips:

* Always walk around your car before driving and check the tyres for correct pressure and tread.

* Most women after middle age dislike driving at night this is due to genetics. Women have trouble focusing quickly into the light and back into the dark men on the other hand do not usually have this problem. Women now have an excuse for not driving at night.

* Remember to use you indicator correctly at roundabouts.

* Check your brakes regularly.

*  Ensure the windscreen is clean, especially if you are driving into the sun in the early morning or late afternoon.

* Feeling tired or drowsy when driving is a dangerous combination. Fatigue and feeling sleepy slows your reaction time, decreases awareness and impairs your judgment. If you feel tired or drowsy always STOP, REVIVE, SURVIVE!

* Never rest your foot on the clutch. In an emergency you could depress the clutch and greatly reduce your breaking distance.

* Start a long trip after a good night's sleep and don't travel at times you would normally be sleeping.

* What is the best method to steer a car? Push Pull or Hand over Hand. The RTA accepts both for driving tests but if you use hand over hand and are involved in an accident the air bag could break both your arms and project them into your face or eyes.

* Able Driving School uses and recommends Yokohama Tyres. However when we purchase a new vehicle it may not have Yokohama Tyres fitted.

* Take a break for at least 15 minutes every two hours on a long trip.

* If you plan to drink, don't plan to drive - catch a cab or travel with a non-drinking driver.
