The Rise of ‘The Driving School of Mum and Dad’

The Rise of ‘The Driving School of Mum and Dad’
Paul Daly

Recent research from Green Flag has revealed that the number of parents helping to teach their children how to drive has risen from 52% to 77% in the past two decades. Meanwhile the ‘school of mum’ is particularly on the rise with numbers tripling from 11% to 30%. These figures represent that both parents and learners are increasingly reaping the benefits and flexibility of private practice over simply paying a driving school.

It is common for learners to begin learning with a driving school. However, soon after they have enough confidence and basic knowledge, driving lessons can then be complimented with extra private practice. Learners will then be able to work on what they have learnt in their previous lessons, as much as they want, when they want.

Combining driving lessons with private practice could be a reason that the negative stigma of learning to drive with parents has been reduced and why rates have increased. It means that the learner can use the ‘school of mum and dad’ more as practice, rather than starting from scratch – which can be daunting for some.
