Mother and Daughter Team take Instinctive Driving for a Ride
Lillian [front] and Nicole [back] (July 2016)
Nicole's Taxi Service
Lillian, a seventeen-year-old college senior is your typical active teenager with a healthy mix of home, educational and social activities. Nicole, her mother and best friend is caring, supportive and fully aware of Lillian’s requirements for greater independence, particularly in regard to transportation.
Relying on Nicole’s “taxi” service, catching buses (sometimes late at night) and friends for transport places Lillian at the mercy of public transport schedules and the goodwill of friends and family. Lillian is an intelligent and responsible young lady who recognises that there may be situations when being able to take charge of her own transport is highly desirable. This may range from emergency situations, chauffeuring family during times of illness, to simply helping her mother out when she is in need of domestic support e.g. food shopping. She is also quite eager to be better able to visit her nan more often who lives some distance away.
This smart and vivacious mother and daughter team have taken Instinctive Driving for a ride and everyone is happy with the outcome
Mother Takes Back Seat
To help Lillian toward obtaining her driving license, Nicole asked her friends if they could recommend a reliable driving school, this is when she was directed to Tony Loughhead of Instinctive Driving. Now Nicole is a discerning young mother who was quite pleased when Tony suggested that she join Lillian on lessons as a backseat observer. This not only gave Nicole the opportunity to observe Tony’s method of instruction and his demeanour, she also admitted that she picked up quite a few good pointers for her own driving. And yes, whilst some teenagers may find it intimidating to have a family member in the car whilst learning to drive, Lillian stated that she is now far more comfortable driving with her mother present. This outcome is not exceptional; it is why Tony often recommends a student’s parent / guardian accompany them during driving instruction.
Patient and Relaxing
In prior circumstances Lillian would feel nervous, and stressed, with Tony however, she felt very at ease due to his patient and relaxing style of instruction. In fact, both have highly enjoyed the experience and are pleased to have truly taken Instinctive Driving for a well-deserved ride.
