I've been to Europe numerous times (more than 20 countries so far) but never hired a car yet primarily because of being intimidated with too many rules. I'm from India, driving cars since the last 10 years and excellent at driving in traffic conditions, open roads, hilly terrain etc. On my upcoming European trip, I would finally like to be able to gather the courage to drive (in Slovenia)
I would like to know where I can find information about basic driving rules / rules of the road (like they would teach children). Probably might be very basic for most, but specifically related to :
- Painted markers on the road (there are so many signs that understanding it just does out of hand)
- Parking rules such as parking discs, parkomat machines, colored parking markers on the road etc. ?
- How to fill Petrol (I couldnt find the word Petrol when I was reading this : . What is Super 95 and Premium 98 ?
Most of the information I have found online are some standard minimalist rules for people from the western world (with lots of basic assumption). Where I am from, such level of rules do not exist. Are there driving classes available anywhere in Europe for foreigners or if you can share names of some books, online resources, videos etc. ?
Would appreciate any help that I can get.
