Best practice in very low traffic roads and gradually work your way up. Not a bad idea to take driving lessons too. I think not having driven for 5 years and suddenly taking it into typical roads in traffic would be quite a shock to the average person as well. 2018 pre certified is pretty much close to being a new car.
The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.
Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
