First and foremost, both the guardian and child must maintain a sense of reality. Your child is a first-time driver and will most likely have no prior experience behind the wheel of a vehicle. As a result, a new driver may be unaware of how sensitive and delicate the brake and accelerator pedals can be. As the parent of a learner driver, this may be your first experience assisting or teaching someone to drive.
Furthermore, there are many challenging factors to consider when driving, even for an experienced driver – from carefully checking car wing mirrors and shifting between gears smoothly.
Learning to drive requires a lot of multitasking and building confidence. Make sure you have enough time to teach and support your child and avoid putting too much pressure on them to learn this new skill quickly.
The top five tips that we at CMH Mitsubishi The Glen would recommend are:
- Take your time.
- Find comfort and familiarity in your vehicle.
- Change the driving environment often.
- Invest in professional lessons with a qualified driving instructor.
- Lastly, teach your child vehicle responsibility (proper ways to care for one’s vehicle).
