Beginners often rest their foot on the clutch. Experts know it wears out the clutch and harms transmission.

1. Avoiding Clutch Misuse

High beams can blind others. Experts stick to low beams for everyone's safety on the road.

2. Preferring Low-Beam Headlamps

Instead of sudden brakes, experts predict and slow down gradually. This prolongs brake life and is safer.

3. Braking Wisely

Keeping an eye on all mirrors is vital. It helps in understanding road surroundings and avoiding mishaps.

4. Regular Mirror Checks 

Resting on the gear lever can wear out transmission parts. It's expensive to fix, so experts avoid it.

5. Not Treating Gear as Armrest

Start, wait a minute, and avoid high revs initially. For turbo engines, don’t rev high before stopping.

6. Mindful Engine Warm-Up & Cool Down 

Pushing the accelerator aimlessly at stops heats and wears out the engine. Experts avoid this.

7. Avoiding Unnecessary Revving
