How to Save on Fuel: Tips for Learner Drivers

We discuss the following Tips for Learner Drivers:Driviing School Melbourne

  • Fuel Price fluctuations
  • Car Tune Up
  • Tyre Pressure and Condition
  • Racing Car and Traffic Lights
  • proper Braking
  • Learning To Drive
  • Driving Lessons
  • Driving Safety

No matter what the fuel prices are, every dollar saved is a dollar that stays in your pocket. We driving instructors because of the nature of our job need to know the cost of 1 litre of petrol. This enable us to save on fuel costs over the long run whilst giving driving lessons to our learner drivers.

It is of high importance, regardless of if you’re a new driver or an experienced one, you really should follow the fuel price rises and falls. If you’re driving in Melbourne, Australia then you probably would know that the price of petrol will spike up in one go and in a period of few weeks it would gradually come down by 20 or more cents. When it reaches its lowest point you then fill up your petrol tank.
That’s the first step and that saving alone will add more dollars over the long period. However, there are many things that will enable you to save fuel besides getting cheap petrol.

keeping your car tuned on a regular basis is also another fuel saver. What a tune up does is makes your car more fuel efficient. This tends to give you more traveling distance for each litre of petrol that the car consumes. Over the long distance one travels throughout a week or long journeys, the savings do stack up. Learner drivers and new drivers should make a habit of keeping their cars efficient.

We see it all the time of drivers who are unaware of how much fuel their cars consume when they race their cars from one traffic lights to another. Yes, it is frustrating to catch all the traffic lights but sometimes you’ve got to let it go and cool down. If you’ve learned to drive a car from our driving school you would have already had a discussion about racing your car from one traffic lights to another with us.

Accelerating quickly is another means to throw your money away. The car uses more fuel during acceleration. If you accelerate and then stop at the next lights and repeat this throughout the journey then I’m afraid the journey will have cost you a few more dollars than it should have.

The same goes for braking whilst racing your car. In our opinion this kind of driving is really careless driving and makes any passenger wanting to get out of your car. Try to achieve a smooth drive thereby eliminating sudden accelerations and sudden stops. Anticipate and observe the flow of traffic to your advantage. Furthermore, racing a car is dangerous in itself. At our driving school we teach this basic skill to our learner drivers and tell them that it is good to avoid this type of driving habit. It will also increase your stress levels which is another good reason to avoid this type of driving.

One important factor many drivers avoid is checking their cars tyres at least once per week. Warn out tyres are dangerous in the wet and deflated ones too are no good. Both adds to the loss of the efficiency of the car thereby costing you more money and lowering your safety. It’s really a small adjustment that makes money savings a reality but also adds safety to driving any vehicle.

Learning to drive is one of the most exciting times in a person’s life. It is always a memory one can draw on and visit. You will talk about your experiences and depart them to friends and family in a time not so far away.

The most important thing any driver should know is driving according to road safety levels. This is perhaps one of the most important things we depart to our learner drivers when giving driving lessons in Melbourne. Drive safely and increase your hazard perception skills to have a good life.

Thank you to Ibrahim for his excellent and patient driving instructor. I passed my driving test today because of his teaching method. I really like that he is very strict and he make sure that you get it right. He give a lot of tips and tricks of how to drive and be more confident on the road. Apart from strict, he is very nice and full of jokes, make your driving lesson enjoyable. At the end of the day, it's not only to pass driving test that you want, it's how to be a good and safe driver on the road. 7 stars!!!.

Thank you so much, Ibrahim! Thanks to you, I felt extremely confident in my abilities going into the test and comfortable the whole time while driving. I found you to be extremely friendly and your constant joking and laughing put me at ease. I couldn't recommend Rahma Driving School more highly.

The instructor is a joyful personality, honestly boosts your confidence, knows the instincts of overseas drivers and helps to manage them. He covered the area (Bundoora) very well and provided best practices around tricky situations. He is not only spot on with feedback when you make a mistake, but also when you make improvements. Which helps a lot. I will highly recommend at least two lessons from Rahma Driving school if you are an overseas driver.
