Surviving Your Parents: How To Get Through Driving Lessons With Mom And Dad

practice driving

Learning to drive is an essential part of growing up. For an estimated 56% of teenagers, their parents are their teachers; weekly traffic lessons occur after dinner, or after school, to ensure they’re getting the practice driving they need to ultimately obtain their license.

As fun as time with mom and dad might be when you’re watching a movie together, however, the added pressure of teachable moments inside two-ton vehicles racing down the road can turn a learning experience into a nightmare — for all parties. Here are three ways both parent and child can prevent that from happening and make it through driving lessons.

Drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 experience a fatality rate four times higher than those of adults (age 25 to 69), perhaps explaining the reason your mom always panics when you go a little bit faster than the speed limit. However, it is vital that you both work together — calmly and with constant communication — to ensure that the entire practice driving experience isn’t stressful and unbearable. If your efforts simply aren’t working, or you feel that you need a more comprehensive education, drivers ed classes offered through beginner driving schools are always available to help.
