Learning to drive is equally important for both girls and boys. It is suggested to learn driving at an early age as it will give an opportunity to a driver to become a pro before entering into a professional life and you do not have to rely on someone to give you a pick/drop service. 

The task is not as easy as it sounds like as we have to always keep a couple of precautionary measures in mind before having a hand on the staring of the car especially if we are driving on the roads of Europe.

The tracks of Europe have a long and beautiful highway which actually adds a bunch of memories if you are planning to go on a road-trip with family or friends. Following are the tips for the drivers to observe in order to have a smooth journey without falling into an unexpected trouble.

List of Legal Documents:
•    You should always keep a valid driving license along with you. If you are not a local citizen and driving on the streets of Europe then you should possess a valid international license.
•    Keeping identity card is mandatory (be it a passport or National Identity Card).
•    To avoid the hassle of an accident, the driver shall have a National insurance number and also the insurance of a vehicle.
•    A driver should also carry the V5C certificate, tax certificate, and MOT.
•    It is necessary to have a European breakdown cover documents.
•    The tourist also carries travel insurance document, if in case they meet an accident then a piece of paper can help them out financially.

List of Precautionary measures:
•    If you are heading towards an adventurous place that has a bumpy and rough road then it is recommended to have a pair of extra wheels or at least have a puncture repair kit.
•    Locking wheel nut key is also important to take along as it will help in tightening the wheel nuts going through rough roads.
•    An extra can of petrol.
•    A good Led light or torch with a pair of spare batteries.
•    A battery charger.
•    Fire extinguisher, if you are going for a long journey with family.
•    A first aid kit is as important as petrol.

Driving Tips:
•    Always keep your eyes open and mind attentive while driving.
•    The indicators, headlights and brake light should be in a working condition as they communicate with the other driver following you on the track.
•    You should have a clear understanding of right-hand-side driving because most of the regions in Europe supports the right-hand side driving vehicle.

•    Do not ever drive when you are tired or you can shift the duty to another driver if you are going for a long journey.
