What makes a good driver?

A good driver is respectful of other drivers, always aware of their surroundings, drives within the law and anticipates danger that could be caused by other drivers, other road users and the environment (e.g. the weather). 

You won't be a good driver straight away. The best way to become a good driver is to get lessons from a driving instructor.
