    practice, practice, practice
    make up some obstacles...cones, etc. that won't damage a tree OR your mower
    and go slow, I picked it up in like half an hour
    I wish I would have learned like that, but instead, the company I worked for said here's your throttle, move the levers to go forward and turn. Had a wide ditch to mow, ended up doing fine, and was mowing like a champ by the end of it.

    Make up a course, tell them how to drive it and let them practice, or have them go to a dealer and let the dealer teach them. Personally though, I would go to a dealer whom I don't go to all that often that way if something gets damaged or the employee looks stupid, my dealer don't know about it. JMO
