Learner Drivers Prefer to Practice with Mum

The majority of Britannia pupils prefer to receive extra driving practice from their mother instead of their dad, according to a straw poll conducted by Britannia Driving School.

Mother may panic, but dad gets annoyed much quicker according to respondents.

Those who pass their driving test have had, on average, about 45 hours of professional training, combined with 22 hours of extra practice with mum or dad.

Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “It’s a good idea for teenagers to have extra driving practice with their mum or dad (preferably with mum). But we would recommend about 20 hours of driving lessons with a driving instructor before training with parents. Pupils who combine professional driving instruction with private practice are more successful on the driving test.”
