My mother used to tell me to learn early because for her was hard and for her older friends was harder. My father taught me since I was 14 at our beach house, just parking forward and backward for months with automatic car. Lesson was from 5 to 10 minutes. Then, we would drive on a rocky road for steering wheel control, few meters each time and for weeks or months until next stage. He told me, anyone can drive faster, but the hard part is to drive very slow, so that I would practice nudging a bit the red foot.
