Tips for MUM and DAD

Written by Kat McLeod

Driving with new learners can be scary stuff!

Taking a learner out for their very first drive isn't always easy. Luckily there are a few tips out there to make it that little bit easier! A few things to remember when driving with a newbie:

 

  • Go through the car controls with us before we get moving, if I don't know where it is I cant use it properly
  • Do our first few drives in a quite area. There's too much stress if there is too much happening.
  • Observation: teach us too look around and be aware of things, we aren't the only cars on the road! MIRRORS ARE OUR FRIENDS!

  • Start off with short drives until we get into the swing of things, touching on one new skill each time we drive is good too, no overload of info and stress.
