Lessons tailored to specific, individual needs are hugely beneficial to your teen while learning how to drive. At Learn to Drive Driving School, we offer an exclusive program, which is why we’ve been featured as experts by NSW Compensation Lawyers in an article on how parents can teach kids safe driving skills.

We focus on preparing students for a lifetime of safe driving in a relaxed and stress-free environment. Our fully qualified, professional instructors, teach the exclusive Better Way training program to ensure individual needs are met, regardless of driving experience. Servicing Blacktown, Castle Hill, Penrith, Richmond and Springwood, our team guarantees interesting classes, high-quality cars and outstanding customer service.

One of our number one tips that we contributed to the ‘Driving Lessons and Road Safety Tips for Teen Driving [1]’ article, is to be aware of passing bad habits on to your children. If you’ve been teaching your teen how to drive for a year or so, chances are they’ll need to unlearn an array of incorrect techniques that you may not even realise you’re demonstrating. It’s advised to find a quality driving school, so that your children learn how to drive with the appropriate skills right from the beginning.

A good driving instructor is key to the process, and we recommend instructors who offer Free Keys2Drive, with additional qualifications such as being coaches or facilitators for the RMS Safer Drivers Course. Written evaluations and progress reports are also useful so that students and parents know what needs to be worked on, as progress takes place.

As knowledge leads to empowerment, the more your teen learns, it stands to reason that they’ll consistently improve. We advise that the journey to becoming a great driver and the ability to apply safety rules, doesn’t end when your teen receives their Red or Green P’s, or even their full license. Everyone should always work towards improving their driving ability for maximum safety on the road.

Finally, as with most things in life, practice makes perfect. It’s important that your children know to make the most out of the learning experience and with good driving instructors. After all, the more your teen practices low-risk driving techniques and correct driving skills, the better they’ll become.
