You have probably heard that the DSA who conducts the driving test in the UK advices that in order to have a better chance of passing especially at the first attempt you need to take around 40 professional driving lessons in addition to that they say you should take another 20 hours of private practice with a family member or friend.
If you are fortunate enough to be in a position where you can for example take driving lessons in Mill Hill during the day, and then do some private practice with your dad or mum in the NW3 area of hampstead, it is very important that during supervised time with your parents you only drive the way your driving instructor has taught you, no matter how good or safe and the number of years your supervising driver has behind them.
It is only your ADI that knows the current standards and requirements the DSA examiner is looking for, and all it takes is one driver fault and you fail the test, so if there is any conflict on information while in the car on private practise, then go for what your instructor advices.
I know there is a lot of things that happen in the real world like flashing headlights to allow other cars to go at junctions or using double indicators to say thank you or even waving pedestrians cross the road, but these are not in the highway code and are therefore wrong to do when being assessed by an examiner.
It is up to you to do what it takes to pass the driving test, no matter how much you respect your dads 30 years of driving experience.
