Smart Driving | 5 powerful tips to improve your FIA SDC Ranking

Smart driving means handling your car in a safe, environmentally-friendly way. Learn how to improve your FIA SDC ranking, and ultimately your driving skills, with these five top tips:

Smart driving means handling your car in a safe, environmentally-friendly way.

Stay 100% focused
Mind wandering and lack of focus often causes speed variation and unnecessary acceleration/braking. Avoid distractions and vary your gaze while driving to maintain focus.

Plan the route and be prepared for the next step
Looking well ahead and driving smoothly can help you anticipate and handle any event.

Raise your gaze and keep a safe distance from the car in front
A safe following distance gives you time to adjust your speed gradually and reduces the need for harsh braking.

Do not stress
Allowing extra time, planning your route and checking travel updates before you travel can help to reduce stress and improve your focus.

Try to handle gas and brake smoothly
Gaining speed quickly, only to brake harshly (such as at traffic lights), hurts fuel economy. Looking well ahead and leaving a safe distance helps you adjust your speed gradually and smoothly.
