Driving Games for Kids

Online driving games for kids help them learn parallel parking. You learn, how to park your car between two cars and parallel to the curb. During parallel parking, you have to make sure that you don’t go on the sidewalk, because you are not supposed to hit the pedestrians. You learn about right-of-way, so that you know who has the priority to go and who has to wait, when the routes of two cars conflict or interfere with each other.

You learn how to obey the traffic lights at four-way intersections. The traffic light system in the game is similar to the traffic light convention that is followed on the roads. The three-way traffic light system uses three colors―red, yellow, and green. The red light means your car has to stop, the yellow light means you have to take caution, and the green light means you can proceed. You also learn how to take a car out of a parking space and leave a parking lot. Of course, the games are no substitute to going to a driving school.

The free games use the keyboard to control the movement of the car. The up arrow key moves the car forward, and the down arrow key moves the car in reverse. The left and right arrow keys move the car to the left and right. The space bar key has different functions in different games. In some games, it is used to put the brakes on the car; in others, it is used to make a U-turn or jump.

Goals of the Games

► The goal of these games is to get your car to the finishing line. There is only a limited amount of time available to complete the tasks. You may be carrying some cargo which you have to transport to the destination. There are various missions such as transporting cargo through forests, deserts, and snowy regions. On the screen, you will see arrows that point to the general direction of the destination. You should look for passengers to pick up and then drop them to their destinations as fast as possible.

► Some games let you control the emergency services of a city. For example, you have to drive an ambulance to the hospital. The task would be to pick up patients on the way to the hospital. Another task would be to give CPR to someone who needs it. Some games may also require you to drive a fire engine to a place that is on fire. You may also have to drive a police car to a scene of robbery. You may also be given in tasks like defusing bombs and chasing down and capturing escaped zoo animals.

► There may be special objects in the middle of the road that increase the oil in your car. This allows the car to go a farther distance. There are other obstacles on the road which you should not hit as they may damage your car.

► You are also not allowed to slam into other cars on the road. You should also not drive into buildings, or the car may get destroyed. There is only a certain number of collisions allowed when you play a driving game. If you exceed that number, the game is over. But some games give you points for smashing into objects on the road such as tables and chairs.
