In addition, you should also adjust the driver's seat, steering wheel, and rearview mirror so that the sitting position is most comfortable and the viewing angle is the best. More specifically, before starting the car, you need to fasten your seat belt to ensure safety during the journey.

3. Keep a safe distance when driving a car

This is the most importance thing for you, especially when traveling in crowded cities like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Ho Chi Minh. You can practice keeping your distance . You will practice moving forward and stopping before impact.

This way, you can learn to feel a safe distance between the front of your car and other cars. Since each vehicle has a different front end, it is very important to feel a safe distance when driving.

4. Observe the rearview mirror 

A mistake that new drivers often make is just looking at the front without paying attention to the rearview mirror.

However, the rearview mirror will help you observe the two sides and behind the road to avoid situations such as: crossing the car, rubbing the side of the car, ..

Especially when reversing, you should observe with the rearview mirror, Avoid turning or sticking your head out of the vehicle to observe.

5. Experience turning the car safely

Where you want and are allowed to make a U-turn or cross the road, turn early. When you get close to where you can turn, slowly steer and look at the rearview mirror.

As for the places where you need to turn in the middle of the road, you need to observe and find the turning position so that it has the least impact on traffic on the road.

7. Take it easy while driving 

When driving a car, you should not use your phone; especially when going through junctions or crossroads, you should pay attention to observe signs and signal lights to follow the law.

You should not follow the bus because there are some routes and turns that are only for buses, cars are not allowed to circulate.


8. Fasten your seat belt and don't drink alcohol while driving

This is not only advice but also a mandatory rule for car drivers. Therefore, the driver should practice the habit of wearing a seat belt and not drinking alcohol while driving to ensure the best safety for himself.

9. Observe the signboard

You should practice observing and reading traffic signs on the road. Because this not only helps you follow the law but also ensures the safety of the journey. You should not go too close to large vehicles such as coaches, buses, ... because they will block your view and make you unable to observe the signs.

10. Drive carefully at night

Driving at night is difficult for every driver. Because the dangers in the dark can make you unable to handle it in time. In particular, the headlights of oncoming vehicles will blind you.


Therefore, you should slow down when traveling at night and pay attention to your headlights and low beams. You also need to clean your windshield to ensure good night vision.

11. Drive and Keep to the Left of the Road:

Unlike in the United States or Europe countries, traffic keeps to the right of the road as On one-way, multi-lane roads, the extreme right lane is the slow lane, and the extreme left lane is the fast or passing lane. This is just the opposite of driving in the U.S.

12. Beware of Animals on Rural Roads:

It is very common to find water buffalo, dogs, and chickens crossing roads in villages and surrounding rural areas. According to Vietnam law, these animals have the right of way. 

13.  Insurance Coverage:

Since it is very easy to get into a motor vehicle accident or hit a pedestrian, make sure that you have insurance with full coverage to pay for any vehicle damage or death, or injury.

14. Police traffic.

You won't see many traffic police on the tollways, but you will see them on the major roads between cities, especially during the holidays.

The police often set up roadblocks searching for illegal drugs, drunk of alcohol... that might be coming from the northern or northeastern parts of the country.

Almost all of the traffic police I have encountered have taken bribes for such infractions as driving in the wrong lane or speeding. A common bribe would be about 500,000 VND - 1,000,000 VND ( 25$- 50$).
