STEP 2: LEARN HOW TO DRIVE

We would like to remind you that India has a high rate of accidents in the world with over 17 kinds of road users travelling at different speeds. A major reason is the lack of responsibility, skill and knowledge of the drivers.

Take your time in learning, and don’t be in a hurry to get your driving license. As, with all skills, driving requires experience to reach perfection. The more time you put in behind the wheel, the better and safer you will be on the road.

As per Law driving schools have to give about 21 days of driving training, of which at least 10 hours have to be training behind the wheel. For transport drivers, the period is 30 days with 15 hours of actual driving. But remember, different individuals take different lengths of time to reach the same level of learning.

Till you have the confidence that you can drive well under all conditions and can manoeuvre your vehicle in crowded areas, park in narrow spaces, drive and start on slopes, keep at it.
