Learners prefer dads’ teaching
More than half of learner motorists would rather be taught by their father than their mother, according to a survey by the AA (Daily Express).
Only 24% said mum was a top teacher, against 52% who preferred dad.
Dads know what’s going on under the bonnet, according to 56% of people who took part in the AA survey, and 65% said their father was better at teaching techniques such as clutch control.
But almost 40% of young drivers said dads were quicker to lose their temper in a stressful driving situation while mums were more likely to panic.
