A new survey from the AA has found that many of its instructors think the US President Barack Obama would make one of the best driving instructors.

Obama’s strong leadership skills were one of the key qualities admired by the AA’s instructors.

TV presenter Fern Britton and actors Sir Roger Moore and Stephen Fry were also thought to have the right blend of skills and personality to give driving lessons to pupils.

Stuart Vaughan, an independent driving instructor providing driving lessons in Portsmouth, amongst other South coast areas, agreed, saying, “Obama would make a perfect driving instructor, he has natural confidence and calmness, together with strong leadership and direction.”
