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..

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!

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 donít 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.

freeway 1 pacific coast highway no turns straight road sta monica to oxnard ca
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.
