Learning to drive as a teenager can be somewhat tough. You want to get on the road, but you know that without an instructor certifying that you are ready to be on the road, it is most likely not going to happen, meaning that your chances of getting a license is gone out of the window. One of the most popular questions we get asked most of the time is can my guardian come with me during my driving lessons alongside my instructor just to make them relaxed when driving? If you’re in this boat, we will be looking at some of the driving lesson rules and whether or not you can have your guardian available with you during your driving lessons.
What are driving lessons?
A driving lesson is a professional tuition designed to ensure that everyone on the road uses the right technique. You understand what goes on while on the road, some of the essential driving lesson rules, and things you ought not to do. This will help you develop your driving skills to learn to drive alone without the help of anyone, including your guardian, friends, brother, etc.
Do You Need A Guardian During Driving Lessons?
So, knowing what our driving lesson is and why it is put in place, do you need a guardian to be with you while learning how to drive? No. One of the most important things about driving and being on the road is being able to do things on your own. So, when your instructor is grading your movements and maneuvers while driving and moving your vehicle, one of the most important factors considered is your ability to do things independently even when things are not going the way you expect.
It is normal to feel nervous while driving; it is normal to feel like you’re under a lot of pressure from your instructor to get the job done, but your ability to do it on your own makes all the difference. If you have your guardian over when taking driving lessons, having all their support in the process, you’re still going to need their support when you’re driving because that’s what you are used to. This means that if you need to drive without them around you, the likelihood of killing yourself as well as others around you is high.
The high level of independence needed while driving demands that driving lessons be carried out under strict supervision, and this does not include the need for a guardian to be available for the entire process. So now you understand that even when you have guardians who want the best for you, one of the best decisions they can make for you as well as those who you are going to be sharing the road with, is allowing you to do this on your own. So, when you’re going on your next driving lesson, remember you can do this – but on your own.
