ATTENTION FUTURE DRIVERS! All 50 states in the United States set minimum requirements for you to get a driver's license. This includes a requirement that new driver's pass a road test under the supervision of an examiner. These road tests will determine your driving skills such as parallel parking, safe lane changes & defensive driving techniques such as yielding at intersections. Candidates for a road test must have already acquired a "learner's permit" and some states require the completion of a driver's safety course. Read the free tips & guide below to learn how to pass your road test.

How to Avoid Blind Spots While Driving

When you're driving, you'll notice blind spots that you are unable to see while looking forward on the road or by using the car mirrors. There are 8 blind spots while driving: 2 in the front of the car, 2 on each side, and 2 in the rear of the vehicle. To prevent an accident, you need to avoid blind spots.


1. Know the blind spots of the car. Before you begin driving, familiarize yourself with the areas that you are unable to see when sitting in the driver's seat and buckled in.

2. Adjust mirrors to reduce the blind spots. Align the rearview and side mirrors to minimize the spots that you are unable to see while driving. While on the road, you may find that even more mirror adjustment is needed.

3.  Turn your head before changing lanes. Lane changes require a head turn on the part of the driver. This is due to the fact that it is impossible to completely eliminate blind spots.

4. Look for a split second. Put your body at a 45 degree angle and see whether the lane is clear before you change. If you see a car in your blind spot, wait until it is clear.

Tips & Warnings
- Do not only rely on car mirrors to avoid blind spots. Studies have shown that mirrors alone can't detect all blind spots.
- You must physically turn your head to check for blind spots during a driving exam. Otherwise, it is grounds for failure.
