A Good Driver is Always


Towards pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers. Tries not to frighten them by approaching at a threatening speed. Do not blow the horn and add to the high level of noise in the city. Do not use headlights at full beam and blind the oncoming drivers.


By giving way to the traffic on the right; by slowing down to allow pedestrians to cross the road; does not show impatience by repeatedly blowing horn or threatening gestures; by helping another driver in distress.


Doesn't Overspeed; doesn't overtake recklessly; keeps his vehicle in good condition; follows lane discipline; observes traffic signals and parking restrictions.

Negotiating Turns

Left Turn

1. Ensure that the turning path is clear and no one is coming up behind you on your left

2. Give the left and signal by hand or indicator

3. Keep as close to the left as possible - just before during and after the turn

4. After completing the turn, slowly and smoothly merge with the traffic

Right Turn

1. Make sure that the traffic behind is at a safe distance

2. Give the right-hand signal and gradually slow down

3. Leave as much room as possible for other vehicles to pass on your left, and take a position just left of the middle of the road.

4. As soon as you find a safe gap between you and the coming traffic make turn swiftly but safely.
