Learning how to drive can be a stressful endeavor. For the novice student in drivers Ed in Baltimore, this is a very nerve-wracking venture, full of all sorts of dangers. Plus, you have to keep track of all rules and regulations. This is a lot to take on, even for a practice spin in a car. Fortunately, there are other ways to learn to be a better driver before even getting behind the wheel. One great method for learning the rules of the road and operating a vehicle is to play computer and other games.
Computer GamesYou can get on the computer or the Internet if you want to play interactive games that teach you about driving. You’ll be able to practice your driving skills and test your knowledge. A few neat games include "Driver Ed to Go," "Drivers Ed Direct," and the "Drivers Ed Game.” With these games, you get in a virtual vehicle and drive around. You are first required to select a character and then fill in information on a personal profile. In some cases, you are permitted to pick out your own automobile or instructor. Depending on the game, you’ll be able to practice certain skills. Sometimes you can select these levels yourself or the game will determine what you need to work on. Expect to start easy and then climb up the difficulty scale. Navigate in your virtual car by hitting the direction buttons on your keyboard. Generally, the up key allows you go forward while you use the right and left keys to steer the vehicle. The game will provide you with instructions as you go so you can practice skills such as yielding, braking, parallel parking, and obeying traffic laws. Over time, you should be more comfortable in the driver’s seat.
Other GamesYou don’t need a computer to learn more about driving. If you are an instructor for drivers Ed in Baltimore, consider introducing a couple of games to your class. Set up a road sign bingo, an activity that teaches students how to identify traffic signage. The boards will have pictures and symbols on them and students will have to mark which traffic signs have been called out by you. You can devise another game that helps students learn about what to do in certain driving situations. You can set it up like a game show and ask questions about actual driving scenarios. Students will “honk” in when they know an answer.
