    Use of "stretch out"

    Don't stretch your hand out in a moving vehicle.You should keep it inside.
    (Is the sentence written above correctly).

    Don't put/stick your hand outside when the vehicle is moving.

    There is no need to add "You should keep it inside" - that is implied from the first part.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
