A survey done by AA Driving School in the UK found that 52 percent of the 1,387 adults polled said that their fathers gave them better driving lessons than their mothers. Only 24 percent preferred having mommy in the passenger seat telling how to grab the steering wheel (Note: men should avoid comments like “yeah those 24 percent were girls).
The survey also found that 73 percent agreed that their fathers taught them better practical skills such as checking the oil and tire pressure. 56 percent said that their fathers had a better knowledge of road directions and 65 percent said that their dads were better at teaching them driving techniques.
AA Driving School also found that 28 percent of all parents tell their kids to slow down when teaching them how to drive while 15 percent tell the learner to pull over so they can drive. About 14 percent swear, 19 percent plant their floor on an imaginary brake pedal on the passenger side which obviously isn’t there and 14 percent grabbed the center arm rest for their lives.
39 percent said their fathers were the quickest to lose their tempers during a driving lesson.
