"Parents, educate yourself on what the K53 looks like today. Because parents passed their test about 50 years ago, the way the K53 looked back then and now are two completely different things. So familiarise yourself with what the K53 should look like and implement that when teaching your child in a safe and secure environment."

He added that parents who want to teach their children how to drive should provide them with safe lessons.

"They should use a quiet space and tutorials on reputable sites such as Mikhail Driving Academy. We have a YouTube channel where we post videos, which helps the students to familiarise themselves with procedures and sequences of what it should look like. Then introduce your child to the basic instructional of the vehicle."
