“Safety first” is always a crucial motto for your Perth Driving Lesson. Although driving may seem very normal, it can also be very dangerous if you’re not paying attention to traffic rules or even when others are not paying attention.
Our instructors at Sumit Driving Academy will make defensive driving a priority to ensure you and your passengers stay safe at a Perth Driving Lesson.
Some tips for beginners to remember:
- Obey all the road signs
During your Driving Lesson Perth try to familiarise yourself with as many road signs as possible and make sure you obey them.
- Seatbelts and child restraints
It is law in Australia for all drivers and passengers to wear seatbelts. It is also law for children to be in approved child restraints.
- No mobile phones
No handheld mobile phone usage is permitted whilst driving or sitting behind the wheel while the engine is running.
- Road markings
A large part of the driving test is based on your knowledge of different road markings. Road markings are just like road signs and must be obeyed.
- Drive within Speed limits
The speed limit is the maximum speed permitted on that road and you must not drive above that speed during your Perth Driving Lesson or at any time. Be especially careful in residential areas and school zones.
- Alcohol and drugs
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous and there are very serious penalties applying to these offences.
- Road Conditions
Being aware of weather conditions and planning your trip in advance is always recommended for safe travelling.
- Wildlife and livestock
Wildlife and grazing cattle on the roadside may cross in front of your vehicle. Travelling at a safe speed and being observant is always recommended on country roads.
- Articulated Trucks
Use extreme care when you try to overtake a road train or truck. Ensure the oncoming lane is clear of all traffic for a long distance. It is always much safer to overtake vehicles using the allocated overtaking lanes.
- Emergency assistance:
000 is the contact number for the Police, Ambulance or Fire Brigade.
