I had to change my driving instructor as he was getting booked up at the weekend which is the only time I could do.
Anyway, the new instructor arrived, old man, seemed pleasant enough, although he talks non stop all lesson.
22nd lesson he turned up and I was adjusting my seat. He says 'don't get too close to the wheel, or your boobs will be squashed up against it.
I was thinking to myself wtf but just shrugged it off.
Halfway through lesson he sees a car reversing in the road, we drive past and he says 'might of known, it's a blonde' (My hair is blondish, so I said 'you are lucky I didn't take that personally' He looked a bit sheepish and changed the conversation.
I have cancelled the next lesson (I wrote a general post about the driving the other day) as I am quite pissed off really at how unprofessional he was. He was also saying 'good girl' ecr (I'm 34 with 3 kids !!!!
Am I being oversensitive or is he a creep?

Yanbu. He sounds like a sexist old fart. I would find a new driving instructor.

He is a creep. Please get a different instructor as this happened to me and it made me nervous before lessons and that affected my ability to learn.

He is a creep!

Tell him 1973 wants its stereotype back.

He sounds like a total arse, and if you're not comfortable you wont be able to concentrate on your driving. Get rid and get someone who lives in this century.

Change instructor. You shouldn't be paying good money to listen to crap like that. I know his type!

Yes, there are alot of them out there. When i was learning to drive, as a young un my instructor told me to grip the gear stick and 'pretend it was my boyfriend'.


wish I had complained, but i was a shy 17 year old.

nochips Mon 17-Mar-14 21:19:50

My horrible driving instructor (arm round the back of my seat, casually dropping onto my shoulder) met another learner outside her home. They drove off but he didn't say anything so she just carried on.

Only when he repeatedly didn't reply (or try to grope her) did she pull over to find HE WAS DEAD!


I always wondered if, technically, she was breaking the law by not having a live human to supervise her driving.

Sorry, as you were. Creepy driving instructors to be avoided at all costs.

Rose shock

I had one that made blonde jokes and I am blonde. Not in the UK so I know it's not one of the ones mentioned. Why driving instructors? Weird.

AnyFucker Mon 17-Mar-14 22:10:08

Was his name Jonquil ?

Watch Happy-Go-Lucky for a driving instructor from hell.

My instructor was a very professional blonde woman. I found her after experiencing at least two creepy guys. I passed first time.

BadLad Tue 18-Mar-14 11:10:29

he says 'might of'

(Shudder). Definitely one to bin.

Freckles - he sounds like a dinosaur; I'd go elsewhere. My driving instruct was a sweet old chap - like a granddad, but never inappropriate.
