In-order to sit your P1, you must provide evidence of 15 hours driving experience at Night and it must be recorded in your log book. Anytime from sunset to sunrise will be considered as Night time driving. Some useful tips for night time driving.
- Slow down so you can monitor the sides of the road for potential hazards, especially animals that may dart into the road.
- If you’re using high beams, make sure you dip them at least 200 metres as other vehicles approach and when you’re 200 metres behind a vehicle.
- At the tops of slopes and junctions, lower your headlights. By shifting your gaze to the left of the road, you can avoid looking directly into incoming traffic lights.
- By switching the rear-view mirror to the night setting, you can avoid glare from cars behind you (so that it gives you a reflection of the cars behind you)
- Be aware of other road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists – It’s difficult to see at night.
- In-order to have better vison at night keep your window screen clean
