How To Change A Tire

Written by Simon M

    

Even after you get your drivers license, the learning process is not over. There are many things that you should know as a responsible driver. One of these essential skills is knowing how to change a car tire.

If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having a flat tire, the first step is to pull over to the side of the road. Make sure the ground is flat, and stable. It is essential that the surface of the ground is level to prevent your car from rolling off. Try to stay away from traffic, and remember to turn your hazard lights on. After you have pulled over, apply the parking brake, and shift the gear lever into the “Park” (P) position, or if you have a manual transmission car, push the clutch in, and shift into first gear, then let the clutch go. This helps the car stay in place.

How To Jump Start A Car

Written by Simon M

   

If you've ever turned your ignition key and absolutely nothing happens, then you might have a dead battery. (Note: make sure you always have jumper cables in your car) Make sure both of the cars are turned off. Connect the red (positive) cable to the positive (+) connector of the dead battery. Now connect the other end of the red cable to the positive connector of the good battery. The red cable is set up and good to go. Now for the other cable. Connect the end of the black (negative) cable to the negative (-) connector of the good battery, and take the other end of the black cable and connect it to a bare, unpainted metal surface of the stalled car. A good area to connect it to is the engine block. Start the car that has the good battery and keep it running for about 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, start the dead car up, and remove the cables in reverse order. Keep the car that had a dead battery running for 30 minutes to allow the battery to charge up.

Driving School Difference

Written by Simon M

  

Question: "Is there really a difference between Brooklyn driving schools?"

 

Answer: Yes, there is!

No two things are the same, especially driving schools. Many people choose a driving school based on the prices of individual driving lessons. However, this is the wrong approach. With driving schools, it is always better to choose the best quality school. Taking cheap driving lessons with an inexperienced driving instructor will usually end up costing the customer more, than if they had taken driving lessons with a qualified driving instructor. Well-qualified driving instructors have the experience and knowledge of teaching the proper skills of teaching students how to be a safe and effective driver. You only learn to drive once in your life, so why not make it the best experience possible? Unlike many other lessons you can take throughout your life, quality driving lessons can actually help save your life. So, when choosing a driving school, remember that quality should always come first. For more tips on choosing a driving school, check out our most popular guide.

Scanning Driving Important

Written by Simon M

     

Scanning and observing your surroundings is one of the most important things to do while driving. If you are not aware of your surroundings, accidents can occur, such as bumping into the objects around you or bumping into other cars. According to statistics, teens are 10 times more likely to ignore scanning than middle-aged drivers. Here’s more information about scanning: Scanning is constantly being aware of everything around you and knowing when and where to complete a certain action (stopping, speeding, turning, etc.) 15 seconds is equivalent to one city block. When you look about 15 seconds ahead, you can make sure your car won’t bump into anything. In order to scan, look around, front and back side to side, and check for any minor problems that are occurring or can occur. Once you have noticed a certain problem, you can now take action and avoid it, all with the help of scanning. Scanning keeps you safe and aware! Scanning is a very important skill to learn in driving school. It will help keep you safe on the road. Driving schools teach scanning to teen drivers in order to increase reaction times and improve road safety.
