It is all about habit when you first get to learn anything new. Finding a good instructor who will give a proper guidance to the young driver is a important head start. There are a few key points that they need to take note.

- Teach young drivers what to look out for and how to react in difficult situation. Eg. the technique of applying emergency brake when you need to, do not follow the car too close to avoid hitting the rear.
Guide them when they just got their license
Take a ride with them when they are at their first few months on the wheels. Go to unfamiliar or congested route with them to let them experience what need to be done and react when necessary. Don’t take things for granted and assume that it is a easy route. It will be easy for you not for them!!
Practice makes it Perfect
