out-

a prefixal use of out, occurring in various senses in compounds (outcast; outcome; outside), and serving also to form transitive verbs denoting a going beyond, surpassing, or outdoing of the particular action indicated (outbid; outdo; outlast).
[Middle English; Old English ūt-; see out]

When you go out of a place or get out of something such as a vehicle, you leave it, so that you are no longer inside it.

She rushed out of the house.
He got out of the car.
She's just got out of bed.

In conversation and in less formal writing, you can use out without 'of' in sentences like these.

You don't usually use 'from' after out. However, you use from in front of some other prepositions such as behind or under.

He came out from behind the table.
2. 'out' used as an adverb

You can use out as an adverb to say that someone leaves a place.
