Let’s get your car sorted! This lesson is about making you comfy and ready to drive in your vehicle.
Adjust your seat and steering wheel
Use your seat belt every time you drive
Make the most of your car’s mirrors
Being comfortable and in the right position in your driving seat is important. Sitting too close to the steering wheel means that you’re more likely to be injured by the airbag during a crash.
Your seat belt is one of the most important life-saving features in your car, but you need to make sure it’s correctly fitted so it can work properly.
Mirrors give you a good idea of what’s around your car, but there are blind spots that the mirrors don’t cover. Adjusting your mirrors correctly will make those blind spots as small as possible.
