Why is it advisable NOT for your Family or Friends to teach you to drive?
Well, Expectation is one of many reasons why you should learn with a Qualified Driving Instructor.
Family or Friends will quickly lose their patience and temper with you for not understanding what they mean first time/quickly after all they would prefer doing something better and less stressful with their time don't you think?
Also the amount of accidents I drive past each week thanks to mum and dad's driving school doesn't surprise me in the slightest.
Parents should never interfere with their teenagers life skill of learning to driving.
Only a qualified driving instructor can provide such a large knowledge transfer why risk your teanagers life for the sake of money, please don't be a cheap-skate your child deserves better or maybe you just don't care?
National average for driving lessons is 30-50 hours, my most Natural / intelligent pupil I've ever taught to drive managed to pass 1st time in 32 hours with 0 minors Amazing !
This young lady who had her first lesson on her 17th birthday amazed me. I only had to Instruct a command or go through a manouvre once and she would nail it every single time without fail truly incredible, I have never meet anyone like that since, in 14 years.
You or your teenager most likely won't be the exception to that rule as you can understand.
Learning to drive is not cheap and you shouldn't attempt this if you can't follow through with my driving course to the end.
