I think the chief difference is, the driving instructor’s car has dual controls, and he is in control therefore, he can be much more relaxed.
So very true. Because he learned way back in the 60's dad has a different way of driving to me and he get's annoyed when I drive in a different way.

Just drive your way. You will find a way that suits you.
