No one really. My dad taught me where the brakes, gas, and gears were and that's about it. I learned the rest on my own, but I did take a drivers ed class.

my mom taught me... I would have got my learners at 15 (like normal...) but I dropped the class because of a guy.... so I HAD to take it in summer. (I was 16 by then...) I waited and practiced. and at 17 I took my drivers and failed... I coutd to practice until I was 21 when I finally took it again, and passed! I am now 23. and havent driven since the end of the summer I got it back in 2011.... (btw I was pregnant with my son at them time I got it too lol)

I learned from a class they had at our high school.  And it was a pilot program from the state of CA (1972,yes, I"m old, lol).  10 weeks, every day, then they kept track of the number of tickets and accidents, and the miles driven (to prove you needed more than just a few hours).  The program was actually a huge success, but they cut it due to cost.  I was 16 and knock on wood, never been in an accident.  A few tickets, but only after I moved here to WA (literally, like all in the year after we moved) due to insanely low speed limits.

I totally understand. I had a terrible accident when I was 16 but didn't drive until just before my 21st birthday.

My ex I lived with at 16 taught me to drive a little but I really taught myself out of need when I was 20 and got my license at 21.

Gl mama! Just try to relax and just cruise.

My dad taught me how to drive when I was 12. My parents have about 70 acres of land, so my dad would always let me drive around the property.
