Who taught you how to drive?
One thing that is very helpful when trying to learn how to drive is not being afraid. If you are scared, there is no way you would be successful in mastering the art of driving.

Most people go to driving school to learn how to drive, it's only few people that learns how to drive on their own. Personally, I learnt how to drive from movies and playing video car racing games.

My dad taught me how to drive but my father learned how to drive on his own. He learned how to drive by watching my Dad drive. He just woke up one day and when we went to the car in the morning we found that he had reversed the car and it was outside the gate. Driving is not something that you can learn at once. The more you drive the better you become. I don't believe you can learn to drive at driving school where you are given only a few lessons.

It's better to learn driving when you have your family car or vehicle. Sadly, we don't have one yet, but my father knows how to drive. It's just unfortunate that he can't teach us how to drive as of the moment.

We put the cart before the horse. We (my husband and I) bought a car first and then went to an empty parking lot and I tried to learn how to drive the car by steering it in a circle and parking it. LOL.

My father taught me how to drive a car. He explained everything to me before I started the engine. Then he said to me to relax and enjoy. I really listened to him, relaxed and enjoyed. I will always remember that day. The speed of automobile I drove was so slow. But I really enjoyed it. My father encouraged me to speed up and I did it. Then I felt a little bit nervous, I must say. But that feeling soon vanished and I was calmly driving our car in our hometown.

I'm one of those who learned how to drive on their own. What I did was observe other drivers how they do it especially when it comes to the clutch-gas process. But when I was practicing, I have a friend with me to guide me and teach me how it's correctly done.

This is a great advice. I don't know how to drive a car yet, and I didn't ask for someone to teach me. But, I think observing the drivers when you travel would be a great starting point.

Then your friend taught you, I wanted to say it a bit risky to learn to drive on your own. Most things we need to do perfectly well not just doing them needs some expertise and we can only get them from learning from other experts.

My dad tried teaching me how to drive a car when I was still in school but I always screw things up and I gave up, I think I'm afraid of me getting into driving violations. I've lose interest in driving but now that I'm a grown-up, I need a car more than I used to so I might try again.

Who taught me how to drive? Actually, no one taught me how to drive because until now I don't know how to drive a car. I know how to ride a motorcycle but driving a car is a different thing. I would learn how to drive a car but my father is always busy with his work and I don't have friends who know how to drive a car.

We are opposite. I actually tried to drive motorcycle but not succeeded. It was easier for me to learn driving in a four wheel than in a 2 wheel. That is only on my own opinion and based on my experienced during my driving lesson program.

Well, I'm different from all of you because I only know how to ride on a bicycle. Haha. That's sad, but, I'm planning to learn someday.

Truly, it was the road itself who taught me how to drive. As my parents didn't have a lot of money, we never had a car. So, as soon as I was old enough, I started asking friends to teach me. A couple of friends taught me, one 10-minute ride at a time. It wasn't constant, and I would spend months before another friend would appear and allow me to drive his car. Eventually, I got to a level of confidence high enough to take the driver's test, and I passed. I still don't own a car, but sometimes a friend lets me borrow his and I get to drive around town.

It's my father who taught to drive. He was a driver in a company back in 90's and sometimes he would take me. He taught be starting with controlling the wheels. He would step the gas and the clutch as I hold the steering wheel and shift the gears. When he knew that I already good at steering the wheels and shifting gears, he allowed me to totally drive the car.

Driving is really exciting and I've been dreaming to drive a car since I was a kid and I'm really glad that my older brother taught me patiently how to carefully drive a car. I had so much fun, though I'm not really that good enough to drive on my own but I'm hoping to finally learn about it all.

My partner taught me how to drive. I was really scared because I really had no idea how driving was like and I was nervous at the time. There were times that I fought with my partner because of the things that was not clear like the instructions and other stuffs for driving lesson. I was told by my partner that I was a fast learner and after a few days passed I managed to drive it on my own. It was not easy but challenging experienced.

I went to a local driving school to learn driving. I attended morning classes from 5am to 6am when the roads are clear and there is no one around. There is a quality staff to help you around and to monitor your driving skills.

This is me. My dad just believed we need to know every damn little things about driving. He is of the value that no good acquired knowledge is a waste so he send each and everyone of us to the driving school. Almost all my siblings passed through a driving school.

Unfortunately, no one taught me how to do it. So, unil now, I have no knowledge about it. Well, we are planning to buy even a second hand car for the next 2 years. So, I hope for the best

That happens with many. I remember for my bike learning nobody was there. And it was something a good experience with the drive. I think those who have such issue these days youtube can be really helping. I think for those people they can learn from the process.

My brother taught me how to drive a car with manual transmission but I also enrolled in a weekend driving class for four hours each week for five months before applying for a license. I have to admit I'm still scared to drive during rush hours when there are so many vehicles on the road. I only drive during weekends and rarely on long distances. It's tough because you have to pay attention to a lot of things at the same time and for someone who has gotten used to sleeping during travel time, it's really stressful.

I learned from my cousin. I'm really interested to drive to I ask my cousin if he could teach me some basics.

My dad and me watched racing on TV since I can remember. He used to be a amateur racing driver back in the day, and I believe he transferred the love of cars onto me. He thought me how to drive when I was only 12 years old!!! I could barely reach the pedals, and yes, it was a stick shift! I have since raced Go-Karts and still do (28 now yeeesh) but I believe that the driving (pre)school that my dad took me to was so important to how good driver I am today!

My cousin actually forced me to learn how to drive. Initially, I wasn’t a fan of driving because I felt like my attention span wasn’t sufficient enough to be controlling a metal death machine on public roads. So, one day, he decided he would make me drive whether I liked it or not. We were on the way home from grocery shopping, when he decided to take a weird, abandoned road instead of the usual way home. He then stops and tells me to get out of the car, and he promptly gets out as well. Once we’re both out, I ask “What the hell are we doing in the middle of nowhere?” He says, “Get in driver’s seat. I’m teaching you how to drive.” He basically said he wasn’t going to drive us home until I got in there and at least gave driving a shot, so I was left with pretty much no choice. That being said, it wasn’t a bad experience, and he even said he was surprised with how well I was able to drive a stick shift for my very first time.

My ex tried teaching me. I couldn't get my head wrapped around the idea of driving and I was a nervous wreck. I was honestly a ball of shaking nerves. It was not only embarrassing but caused an anxiety attack. I don't feel comfortable with the idea of driving since I suck at those driving simulation games. I know they're different but the fear is just there that I'll crash the car and hurt everyone. Maybe someday I'll learn to drive?

I don't know how to drive yet. I really want to learn how to drive but I don't have opportunity to fix it to my schedule. We have a churchmate who is a taxi driver and he wants to teach us how to drive but unfortunately his schedule is not fit for my schedule. I have friends who happens to be drivers and we plan to schedule a driving session next year. I am excited for my first try.

Actually, I tried practicing with arcades as well. But that did not prepared me well for the real thing. Luckily I had my cousin as my instructor. He also owned the car we used to practice. Having someone you know as your teacher makes the whole learning thing easier and less scary. After that he made hit the high way for a quick short-cut drive home. It was both nerve-wracking and very thrilling at the same time. After that I pretty much practiced on my own until I am confident to go highway alone.

Learned how to drive from my region local driving school. Well, I felt it will be better with a driving school since I will be better. I will learn all that is necessary to know about driving . Had my training both at the evening and in the morning. It was really fun then.

I have learned to drive the bike from my sister and one cousin brother. I think that was good experience. You can see that such driving experience was good enough in many ways. But then again learned a lot over the period of time. So it seems like a good idea there to learn from siblings.

Mainly my dad since he was much more chill than my mom who would always get so horribly nervous when I would drive. I also did a few lessons with an official driving instructor to hone my skills more.

Dad. Terrible. He got frustrated too easily and taught me most things but couldn't teach me how to back into a parking spot. Ended up just giving up and saying "get your driving instructor to teach you".
