New Government Test Sites for Self-Driving Cars

Google self-driving carsSelf-driving cars are still under development, but already create a huge hype. Their tests have been going on for years, and more and more cars of this kind go on the road every year. On his last day on the job, former US Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx created a list of test sites for self driving cars.

What Self-Driving Cars Mean To Us

These cars raise an interesting question: how will people be licensed to use them? On the one hand, it’s a fully autonomous machine. There is no need for human intervention in most cases. On the other hand, current self-driving cars always have a human operator who can take control whenever necessary. Will it still be necessary when development is complete? It’s hard to be sure.

It’s interesting to think about the role of the DMV in a world of cars that drive automatically. A good guess might be that a license will still be necessary, but with less strict demands and rules. The age of being in a car alone will probably decrease, and the written test will have entirely different questions.

For now we’ll just have to wait until development is complete and hope that these cars will be as safe and as easy to operate as possible. It will be a great revolution, and we just have to sit back and enjoy it.

Driving Test Guide for Student Drivers: What You Need to Learn in Order to Pass

Is your driving test coming up soon? Or do you simply want to get a head start on your studying? Whatever the case may be, there are many things you need to learn in order to become a skilled driver. You need to learn the laws in your area, various driving conditions, how to handle emergencies, and so forth.

If you’ve already taken the written test, then you’re probably already familiar with the laws in your area. If you haven’t, then make sure you go over your course material carefully so that you can learn what all of the signs mean. Look over the drawings that show how to parallel park, merge into traffic, hold the steering wheel correctly, etc.

What You Can Do To Get Help

You can also check out some online driver’s education videos. If there is anything you are having trouble with, be it parallel parking or driving in reverse, you can simply watch the videos to see how the teachers do it. It might be a good idea to put the videos on your smartphone or tablet as well so that you actually watch them as you practce driving.

One of the most important things for any new driver is to develop confidence. No one but you can give you the confidence you need for passing. The secret to feeling confident is to study hard and practice as often as possible on different types of roads. Know EXACTLY what each sign stands for. For instance, a STOP sign means that you have to do just that – even when the way is clear. A YIELD sign means to come to a full stop at an intersection in order to make way for pedestrians and other drivers.

Understand what all of the traffic lights mean and what you are supposed to do as you approach. Know the difference between flashing traffic lights and steady traffic lights. Knowing when you can go and when you can make a turn is essential if you want to pass the driver’s exam.

You don’t want to rush through your studying and practice sessions. While you do want to learn everything in time for the test, you should still try to take things slowly. Have your instructor explain any mistakes you make and put focus on overcoming them. Only when you feel completely comfortable behind the wheel should you take the test.

It’s okay to be a bit nervous. Most people are. What’s important is that you are able to keep your nervousness and anxiety at bay. Learning how to drive and passing your exam doesn’t have to be difficult at all, so long as you have a positive mindset about the whole thing.

In Colclusion

You’re probably already aware that there are online driving guides, but the extent of which might surprise you. There are many, many videos, practice quizzes, state-specific courses, and so forth. You can prepare for your driving test by taking the knowledge you gain from online guides and applying them to your practice.
