L-drivers do better if dad teaches them
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.
