Training with the help of a family member

You may also choose to learn with the help of a family member or a friend as well as taking lessons with an instructor. UK law requires that anyone accompanying a learner driver must be at least 21 years old and have held a full UK licence for a minimum of 3 years.

We advise that if you are the parent of someone learning to drive that you seek the advice of the driving instructor before offering help. As an experienced driver we all too easily forget the range of skills that are used when driving. Training should always be structured and any help offered should reinforce the lessons being offered by the instructor rather than simply allowing a learner to drive in new situations with which they are unfamiliar.

By reinforcing learned skills in this way you are more likely to improve a learner's confidence. Learners will be less stressed and make fewer driving faults.

You should also consider purchasing "Practical Sessions - A guide to accompanying a learner driver" which is available from most bookshops.
