Can my friend teach me to drive?

So I am 22 and I live in michgan. Because of circumstances I never had the opportunity to learn to drive. My friend is 20 who has had his license for a couple of years now and he is offering to teach me to drive. Is that legal? One of my other friends mention that he may not be allowed to teach me because he is

One of my other friends mention that he may not be allowed to teach me because he is under 21. So far all I can find is that you have to be older than 21 to teach teens but I am not sure if that is applied to adults. If you can find the answer please let me know~

And also, I pretty sure I have to, but do I need a learners permit to learn to drive too?

I did read through that. but all I found was "You must practice driving with a licensed adult". I couldn't find any specific definition of how old or how long they had to have held a licence.

I suggests a call to the Drivers Licence Office and clarify the exact rules. I would assume that 20 is an adult, but that's only an assumption. Other places do have rules about the supervisor being 21 or 25 and having to have held their licence for x years.

And yes you need a "Temporary Instruction Permit" before you can drive on the road (with the licensed adult) To get that you show your ID, get your pic taken, eyes tested and pass the written test. Then you go away and practice driving for at least a month, although you have 180 days to pass the practical test and get your Probationary Licence. ( You can renew your permit if you need more practice)

They could but all they are going to do is get you maybe comfortable operating a car and teach you failing habits.. if you just want to learn to drive a car it maybe fine maybe illegal in some ways but fine. If you want to learn to get your license it may not be a good idea. You have two test usually to get a driving license a written then a driving. If you can't pass the written you won't be given the driving also you may need so many hours or time on the road.

In general you are better to seek out a reputable driving school. A seasoned instructor will know the problems of new drivers, and will not get frustrated or angry at your failure to understand something.

Your friend will be guessing at the necessary coaching, and will make major errors, such as saying, "No, NO, Don't do that! Look out for that car!! You weren't paying attention! You nearly got us killed, you idiot," when the correct thing to say (ahead of time) would have been, "Slow down as you approach the upcoming intersection, because even though you have the right of way, other drivers frequently run right through that STOP sign."
