More than 49 per cent told the RAA they did not have the skills required to teach a learner.

The survey was conducted after V8 Supercar racer Mark Skaife demanded for parents to be banned from teaching children to drive, as a means of improving road safety, reports News.com.au.

Skaife said that a lot of parents passed on their own bad driving habits to their children.
