Yes it is dangerous for a newbie but I've done it last week at 2 am with my Mazda 3 (swerte wala pulis).

I call this reckless driving.. No offense..

You need to practice two places when learning to drive - in traffic, and on a road course.

Traffic so you learn how to deal with other cars/buses/pedicabs/tricycles/pedestrians/trucks/idiots around you. And a road cousre you can learn your limits and the car's limits at high speeds in a safe (for others, and for you) environment.

Just had the opportunity to do just that (after over 30 years of driving!!) last weekend. Now I'm a believer that EVERYONE should do this, and the earlier the better!

I'm in car #21 on a fast off-camber downhill sweeping turn (turns 5 and 5a) to the right (and the road slopes to the left!), just after coming over the crest. If you brake you'll load the front tires and unload the rears and spin like a top. If you panic and let off the gas, you will DEFINITELY lose control and slide off the road. If you go too fast too fast for the car to handle the turn, you'll go off the road. You learn pretty quickly where the limits are and how to stay within them. This was at a road course called Thunderhill (www.thunderhill.com) near Sacramento, California.

Driving fast on a crowded city street it just plain irresponsible. Even at 2 am. One of my friends in high school was killed by just such a driver. He was crossing EDSA at Ayal on a motorcycle, and the driver cam racing down EDSA at over 120 kph, ran through a red light and hit him broadside. he was killed instantly.

Racing when there are other, unknowing vehicles and innocent people around you on the street is just plain irresponsible. Unadulterated stupidity and arrogance. No other words for it. Racing belongs on the track - nowhere else!

EDSA is a good place to practice driving alongside buses, trucks, motorcycles and other road cars. You’ll be able to practice switching lanes properly and deal with swerving buses and motorcycles.

Go to Binondo and Divisoria to practice driving alongside tricycles, pedicabs, jeeps and pedestrians. Gotta be very alert in these areas.

Go to ShangriLa EDSA mall to practice going up a high-rise and zig-zag parking area. The training here is ensure that you don’t scrape your bumper against the walls and to ensure that your mags do not brush the cemented center aisle as you go around the curves.

Go to the expressways (e.g. SLEX, NLEX) for training in high-speed roads.

As always, practicing how to drive entails not just how to drive the car well, but also in following the rules and regulations of the roads.

Lastly, familiarize yourself with the different streets and highways. I remember that when I started to drive, I always go out on Sunday and go on a road trip and explore the different areas of Manila, QC, Caloocan, San Juan, Pasig, Pasay, Muntinlupa, Las Pinas, etc. This way, I familiarized myself with the different places where I can possibly go.

Nice road, but there ARE turns on PCH - not many, and they're not sharp turns but they're there! But it's still a good place to practice - speeds relatively low, not too many cars, just watch out for the celebrities speeding along in their Ferraris and other exotica. For an absolutely straight 50 or so miles, take hwy 50 east of the Sierras heading towards Salt lake City.

if you are a newbie driver i suggest late sa gabi... tama lang volume ng sasakyan at mapractice din defensive driving skills mo sa mga motorcycle kasi you'll notice them coming from nowhere...

try also the road going to cavite coming from alabang, forgot the location wala masyado nakaharang doon..

People have the wrong impression na if you can drive fast in a wide open highway, then marunong ka nang magdrive. That is terribly far from the truth. To really learn how to drive, I agree with the posts about going thru rush hour traffic, sa Nagtahan, for example, para mapractice din ang hanging, and mga small roads, daanan mo, to familiarize yourself with the size and feel of your car.

If you are serious about learning how to drive, mag biyahe kang divisoria to cubao & back to divisoria. I'm sorry if I sound rude, but that is the fastest way to master driving.
