I took driving lessons from a driving school, at the time I got my license this was required by law.
I "learned" in high school...but I still don't think I can drive:)
After i had my 1st accident i learned how to be a sensible driver & after that i kept on improving myself.
My father tried first, and then my mother. They made me too nervous, so I paid for lessons from a retired state policeman. He had me on the highway the first day, and two days later I had my license.
I am a self taught driver. It seemed not to need explanation to me.
Practically, nobody. I just observed how others drove their cars / bus / truck at the time I sat by them. At the time I got chance to drive a car, I did not need a long time to train myself to drive.
I learned to drive through a "drivers ed" program, though it was not a good experience. I liked the teacher, but he gave little warning when I needed to turn somewhere, stop soon, etc. I think it would be smart to start everyone off on a closed course... I think they do this for a lot of drivers ed people, but I was out on the road the second day so I was very scared! I am a decent driver now, but as far as teaching goes I think experience has been the best instructor.
My parents did. My Dad one evening about 7:00 as the sun started to go down decided it was a good time to go for a drive. I sat in the back seat with my brother, my parents in the front until we got out in the country on a quiet road and all of a sudden he pulled over. He then said ok it's your turn get up here. I was scared to death but took the wheel giggling all the way. I don't think that I will ever forget that moment. It was a great time.
My mother in law started teaching me how to drive... I must be a sucker for punishment lol!

Should people over 75 be allowed to drive. car accidents involving people over 75 have now surpassed the traditional high risk 16 to 25 year old age group. Should people over 75 be subjected to more frequent testing and possibly be prevented from driving by the age of 85.
