On passing my test my driving instructor said “well done, now you can learn how to drive”

In Poland you can literally fail the test for feeding the wheel.

Speeding doesn’t kill you, it’s quickly coming to a stop that does

"Speed ist the enemy" as a german, when I attended driving school we did Autobahn lessons where I would go about 180 Km/h (~112 mph) regulary (mainly when overtakting). It seems to be very problematic if young drivers dont learn 'how to go fast properly'. That is because they will either go fast anyways and wont know how to drive at such speeds or they will slow down traffic around them and make other drivers take unnecessary risks.

I had two driving instructors, with one instructing me to feed the wheel and the other calling me an old lady for doing so. Same driving school.

Only pull the handbrake when you are taking a 90 degree turn at 60mph.

In the US we are taught to drive with the knees to perform multiple tasks at the same time. Eating, lighting one up, texting etc.

Thank goodness someone's finally said this! Particularly on feeding the wheel; it is the most ridiculous and inefficient method of steering, and probably originates from a time before PAS was universal and more strength was required to steer. Personally whenever I turn out of a junction, I check every mirror, including the one on the sun visor, quickly check the glovebox, under the seat, check the door bins and then screech off in an uncontrolled manner without using my indicators. It's always worked for me.

"speed is your enemy" When I did my driving lessons my instructor told me to go 160km/h at night with heavy rain on the autobahn.

I took my driving test about three years ago. From what I remember, it was fine to not use your handbrake, and "progressive driving" was encouraged, especially on dual carriageways to the point that you'd get a minor for not driving fast enough/making progress. Still meant that you had to be constantly checking your speed ofc.

One of the first sessions my teacher took me to the Autobahn. It was limited to 130km/h but with a Golf in the 90s was quite impressive. You should be taken to the limits in driving school.
