What the f**k do they teach you in the UK lmao. I made my tests not even a year ago and, for example, the shit with the steering is strongly discouraged. The hand brake is just for parking, if you go a little over the limit it's ok as far as you drive safely and correct yourself fast enough, you should check your mirrors often but not to the point of taking your eyes of the road ahead of you for too long... there's probably more but that's how I was taught and I don't think there was anything stupid about it. You guys should really make some kind of revolution because this is just creating more dangerous drivers lol

Who the hell teaches "feeding the wheel"? I didn't learn it that way. I used my right palm, pushed it against the surface of the wheel, and steer in a circular motion while I made it look like a was also using my left hand. It wasn't the way my teacher wanted me to drive but it worked, he didn't notice

They specifically teach hand-over-hand steering and shun shuffle steering here. It is not as absurd of a check list as in the US, but there is an annoying checklist for lane changes that distracts you from the goal of doing the list by making it so systematic rather than natural.

In Saudi Arabia flashing people on the highway usually means “move out the fucking fast lane” Flashing headlights in the city is usually done when someone is slowly swaying into your lane. It means “don’t you fucking dare cut me off” While a short beep in the city lets someone know you’re allowing them to take over your lane if they’re trying to change lanes but seem reluctant.

Feeding the wheel is the worst thing for me. Even the CDL testers want you to do it which is bs. Also I've never heard of using the handbrake every time you stop.

Here in Canada BC we flash our headlights at each other to give the right-of-way to that person, like if you both arrive at a 4-way stop and not sure who should go first, you flash it to the person across from you to go ahead and take his turn :) in Europe, they do it to warn you that Police-Checks are ahead LOL

Wtf?! Feeding the wheel is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. My driving teacher never mentioned this stupid technique
Mako Mori (16 days ago)
The "feeding the wheel" technique, also known as shuffle steering, is actually SAFER than crossing your arms over the wheel. When you cross your arms over the wheel, you put your arms in the area where the airbag comes out. If you're turning arm-over-arm and get into a wreck strong enough, the airbag will deploy your arms straight into your face in your body with a punch that rivals the strongest boxer. Shuffle steering is used in EVOC driving and guarantees that you won't have your arms in the area that the airbag deploys, and is recommended beyond emergency situations, but for everyday driving.
Butch Hudson (16 days ago)
I am handbraking on the red lights, because I dont want to stand on my brake pedal for 60 seconds, handbraking is more comfortable to me. And also I hate to look into the brake lights of the car in front of me. Especially when it is dark outside, I really hate all the drivers in the traffic jam standing on their brake pedals or what more using fog lights. God damn, I am 0.5 meters right behind you, I can see you, turn it off and use your handbrake!

M. de k. (18 days ago)
Across the pond in the Netherlands. You are taught to steer by passing through and taking over. You are not allowed to drive 5+km/h slower than the maximum speed limit unless it causes dangerous situations, you are allowed to signal. So basically you learn to drive properly and then you drive like an idiot the moment you get your driver license.
deepspacepotato (18 days ago)
I pretty much unlearned this bs when i got my license. Now I drive like a noob on speed and that makes me a much safer driver than if I were to drive as instructed by the... uh well.. instructor.

flamehiro (19 days ago)
I hate when they expect you to look around like an idiot all the time, if you plan to switch lanes it makes sense otherwise not really. Haha I loved how you included the speed limit I always thought that was bullshit too. How is it safer to constantly be looking at your speedometer versus going a couple miles over.

acefaceuk (20 days ago)
The 'speed is the enemy' point is bang on! So many people don't seem to know how to speed match when joining motorways and dual-carriageways. Even worse are the complete mouthbreathers already on the motorway that slow down to let joining traffic on! Driving instructors often repeat the mantra "it's a limit, not a target", however in 40mph zones in urban areas that 40 is actually a target. 40 is the speed at which the highest volume of traffic can flow through a road while maintaing safe distances. Any slower and it simply takes longer to get the volume of traffic through, leading to congestion. Any faster and the distance between vehicles negates the speed increase. Hence why motorways and dual carriageways (usually) have multiple lanes, it allows traffic to travel faster while still allowing a high volume flow.

I would not let a new driver watch this video. I have found that doing the things that this video tells you not to like using you're hand brake is very useful and if people actually follow this guys so called advice could potentially cause numerous accidents.

Adam Butterworth (21 days ago)
Load of bollocks this. The problem with flashing your headlights is that it can be misinterpreted. Imagine a bus wanting to emerge from a side road, a car wanting to turn right and a woman with her kid wanting to cross the road and you flash your lights to let the bus out. How will the other 2 know you’re not flashing to let them proceed? Good luck cleaning up that mess.

Glasshalf_Pessimistic (21 days ago)
I'm confused about the BMW thing. Is that a joke or for real?
Indrid Cold (21 days ago)
It is real. There is a tiny design flaw in BMW cars that if you use the indicator you run a very tiny chance of ruining the car's entire electrical system. Chances are it will not ruin the BMW's electrical system if you do use it. But why chance it? Just drain the blinker fluid out and do not use it.
So this video is the reason for all the bad driving I've been seeing lately. In all seriousness. People should dismiss your first one. The way people are taught is absolutely correct. If you turn a corner the way you did in the example, your positioning is at fault, not your steering technique. I have a friend who used the criss-cross method and she broke both her arms, elbows, jaw and nose and that was under 30mph. You could end up getting sued if people take your advice seriously.
Twix (21 days ago)
If you cross you arms turning the steering wheel and have a crash the airbag will go off and you will punch yourself in the face at 300kph, you are the ones endangering lives.
Twix (18 days ago)
+Anarcho-Swagism The push- pull method is most effective. Just the stupid example shown in the is completely wrong. Both BMW and mercedes teach these methods

So do you drive like that to be safe from the airbag?

William Moreland (21 days ago)
Here in Canada, we flash our lights to warn people of police running radar. The worst thing you'll find here though is at 4 way stops when everyone wants to be kind and let the other person go first, even if they themselves have right of way. It's the Canadian version of traffic jam. Not me though, everyone can get out of my way because I'm impatient, and no, I do not drive a BMW, I just feel entitled. Don't like it? Sue me.

Feed the wheel? Hand-over-hand? I don't do either of those. I usually have one hand on the wheel. If I need to turn the wheel farther than normal, I do it with my palm.
James Currie (21 days ago)
Nintendo Kid that is stupid and not a good way to drive!
Nintendo Kid (22 days ago)
Wow, what the hell? We're never told any of this shit in America. The "hand brake" is called the "e-brake" or emergency brake, or the "parking brake." And the only time it's used is during parking, or apparently people also use it to help them start from a dead stop on a steep hill to keep them from rolling backwards in a manual car... OR when we wanna leave the car running without us in it, like say on a cold winter morning when you wanna let the car warm up before you go driving in an icebox to work.
The SamsungExperiance (22 days ago)
they dont teach feeding the wheel in lessons and test now and you are even allowed to cross your arms when steering as long as both hands are on the wheel at all times unless changing gear, you are NOT allowed to drive 1 handed like most do now (me)
John P (20 days ago)

If your mirrors are set up properly you do not need to look over your shoulder. If you can see your rear door in your side mirrors they aren't adjusted properly. If you can see a car in both the rear view mirror AND a side view mirror, your mirrors are NOT adjusted correctly.
Julian (20 days ago)
+John P According to Car and Driver magazine, most drivers keep their side mirrors out of tune to ideal positions, causing blind spots that can lead to serious accidents. Car and Driver illustrates a car mirror setup that, once you get used to it, could prevent lane change accidents. The auto magazine is basing its mirror alignment diagram from a paper published in 1995 by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). That paper suggested moving side mirrors to point farther out into adjacent lanes -- which is counterintuitve to most drivers who prefer seeing part of the side of their own car.
Julian (20 days ago)
+John P In massive trucks pulling trailers, yes. In a car no. If you tune your mirrors correctly as the vehicle in your rear view passes it should disappear in the rear view, and appear in the side view. As the vehicle disappears from your side view, it will show up in your window, then in front of you.
John P (20 days ago)
Julian no, there are still blind spots.
