Should your child learn to drive on private property?
Driving is inherently dangerous, so why not teach your kids to drive as safely as possible, meaning should they learn to drive on private property?
- Moving off, then stopping, just very slowly at first;
- Turning the car, just in a big paddock, nowhere specific;
- Gears (we have a whole article on teaching people to drive manuals, read it here.);
- Maneuvering – between cones or something that won’t hurt. Include stopping in specific places;
- Hills, up and down, including hill starts;
- Faster driving (now into second gear and beyond.);
- Emergency stops; and
- Skid control…
- How to teach manual gearshifting
- Never miss another manual gearchange
- Braking tips
- How to steer a car
- Why advanced driving courses don’t always help you
