Teaching a learner driver – how hard could it be? Many years ago, a sister of mine expressed an interest in learning to drive. Being a keen driver myself I thought teaching a learner driver would be fun. However, I didn’t realise how unprepared I was.
We started off in the large car park of a furniture manufacturing company, full of good intentions; but it wasn’t until she took the driving seat that I realised I didn’t have a clue where to start. Needless to say, the venture was not very successful.
Some years later, I took training myself and went on to become a professional driving instructor. I worked for a local driving school for a while, before taking further training and joining the British School of Motoring for a couple of years. When I decided to start up my own driving school, the family came to me for lessons. Things went according to plan this time because in the meantime someone had taught me how to teach.
