    Welcome to TFI !!

    0. Drive safe and wear your seat belts !!
    1. Keep your ORVMs open, it will save your cars body from most of the scratches, its there to save you by all means, so keep it open and look into it regularly while turning.
    2. Dont drive on roads without traffic, its good just for getting steering balance.
    3. Let the ones behind you stand on top of you and honk loudly, dont get tensed up or irritated, keep cool.
    4. Lookout for all the 2 wheelers, they are at a less safer state

    there are more gurus here. you will be bombarded with suggestions. :redcar

  4. Ketan, don't worry driving confidence comes gradually the more you drive, Within no time driving will be your second nature .Welcome to TFI and enjoy puntoing !!!
  5. @Pran keeping cool and being newbie driver is very very difficult; but I somehow managed to drive around Pune and took car to office today

    "Don't drive on roads without traffic" is ironically the best advice. (applicable only after you could drive without problem on empty patches)

    Be calm & cool yar, otherwise you are going to damage your car. If somebody is going to overtake you leave him the way, how much in front will he go in traffic might be one or two car lengths or 10 minutes in advance to the destination. Going late by 10 minutes is not going to make any advantage.

    Happy driving.
