Driving Tips

Here's our top tips on what to expect on the roads- and how to stay calm and safe whilst behind the wheel in UAE.


Seat Position


To adjust your seat you have to hold the adjustment level located below the seat. Pull it up with one hand and hold the steering wheel or door arm with the other hand and slide the seat forward or backward and release the level when you reach the comfortable position.



Seat Belt


It is a basic and common safety rule to wear seat belts for both the driver and the person sitting in the front. Wearing the seat belts can reduce the injuries of that person as it stops that person to come out of his seat and hit other interiors of the car which is also called second impact. Despite of risk of serious injuries, and facts that seat belts can be effective in saving the life of people sitting in the vehicle.


Head Rests

Head restraints are safety features in your head rest that reduce the damage done to your neck during an accident. Head rests restrict neck movement in the moment of impact. The jerking forward and then backward of your neck is what causes whiplash, and what makes it so painful and damaging.



Mirror sitting


Central mirror gives you the view only behind your car. You have to adjust it properly until you can see the full view of back screen of the car. To adjust left and right mirrors use the knobs or motor switch. And if the mirrors are directly clear them. You must be contained objects appearing in the convex mirrors are closer than they appear.




Many drivers do not keep a safe distance - don’t be tempted to join them! Remember the three second rule – always stay three seconds behind the car in front, This adjusts for speed. You will find that you have left a safe space and someone else will sneak in and fill it- it's going to be up to you to pull back a bit to maintain the safe space again.





An indicator is a signal of intent not a signal of achievement, and yet so many drivers give a single or double flash of their signal before changing position which they assume is OK, despite that very often they gave given other road users insufficient time to take on board and then react to the signal given.



Lane Discipline


Always keep to the left hand lane and do not change lanes unless you need to. To do a lane change, you must plan and prepare in good time. Don’t change lanes unless you really need to. Using the mirrors well before your lane change is vitally important to gather information about the traffic in the lanes around you. Check and recheck to confirm there is space for you to make this move. Put your signal on in good time to allow for it to be seen by other vehicles. The sooner you indicate your intentions, the sooner the other traffic can register your intended move. Always keep to the centre of your lane. Never drift over the lane lines.
