Passing another car can be tricky for the new driver. Whenever in DOUBT on whether you can safely pass, don't try it. Here are some passing tips.

Don't Pass

  • When there is a solid line on your side
  • When you're uncertain there is enough time or space
  • When you can't see around a curve or over a hill
  • When behind multiple cars and passing one car doesn't really make any difference
  • On two lane roads, don't pass tractors or trucks or other vehicles you can't see around
  • In hazardous weather conditions
  • When another car is coming toward you in the opposite lane
  • When a car is passing you
  • When there is construction or road workpassing
  • When the car in front of you is going the maximum speed limit
  • On narrow roads, on bridges or in tunnels
  • When you are unfamiliar with the car you are driving and its capabilities
  • Don't play leap frog by passing a friend that just passed you

Don't pass in any of the above situations.

Passing with Caution

  • Only pass if there's a dotted line on your side.
  • Check that the passing lane is clear.
