L-driv­ers do bet­ter if dad teaches them

Daily Mail - - News -

LEARNER driv­ers are four times more likely to pass their test first time if they are taught by their fa­ther rather than a pro­fes­sional in­struc­tor, a poll has found.

If moth­ers helped out, their chil­dren were twice as likely to pass first time, ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey of 1,000 par­ents and their chil­dren.

A to­tal of 35 per cent of those par­ents polled said that they taught their chil­dren to drive be­cause it was cheaper than pay­ing for lessons.

And 41 per cent said they did it be­cause their chil­dren felt more com­fort­able with them help­ing out.

But 18 per cent said they wished they hadn’t taught their chil­dren to drive be­cause it caused lots of stress and ar­gu­ments, ac­cord­ing to the re­search by dash cam man­u­fac­turer Nextbase.
