This is why it took me so long to get my license. My mom is a panicky person. I barely used my learner's permit for a while because she always made me nervous. My dad wasn't much better. It wasn't until my grandfather, who had a lot of experience teaching teens to drive and could stay totally calm, stepped in to teach me that I actually learned. If you can't be calm and helpful when teaching a teen to drive, I would suggest Driver's Ed or finding someone else, because your nerves ain't helping the new driver's.
In many places in the US, before obtaining a driver's license, you need X hours of driving experience with a permit, which you can only do with an adult "instructor." Even without reading this FML it's safe to assume that the heavily populated and relatively liberal CA would have such a regulation
To everybody saying that this is stressful for the mom, remember your first time driving. Her mother screaming does not make the stress any better.
It's more stressful for the first time driver than for the passenger who is supposed to be calmly teaching them.
