Graham Kidson believes roundabouts and indicating are some of the main issues facing Orange drivers.
Mr Kidson has been a driving instructor for the past 14 years, and says the difference between young and old can often be determined by a few simple things.
"When you're teaching people to drive nowadays, the standard is higher than what it used to be," he said.
"So the new drivers have a higher skill level than the older drivers, but the older drivers are more experienced. It's a bit of a dilemma."
A city full of roundabouts, the instructor from Orange Driving School says that particular issue is one that regularly stands out.
"One of the biggest things is speed coming into a roundabout, which makes it hard to be in the right position, get your blinker on and make good decisions to stop in time," he said.
"A lot of people don't use indicators even as simple as when they're pulling over to the side to park. A lot of them will just pull over and shove it in reverse rather than putting on their indicator to let people know they are pulling over."
Mr Kidson says the majority of people he comes across treat him with respect and had some advice for those just getting into driving.
"I try and tell the students that the stuff you have to do nowadays to pass the test, it's the same stuff that you have to do to survive on the road," he said.

"It's not just about test day, it's about how you should driver forever.
"Words of wisdom are you're better off getting a little bit of professional help along the way, during your driving rather than leaving it to the week before your test."
Wellington Madechiehwe has been an instructor for nearly three years now and moved from Sydney to Orange in July of 2020.
The Kings and Queens Driving School instructor said the standard is higher in Orange than in Sydney.
"It's safer to drive in Orange and we are producing better drivers as well," he said.
"They observe all the road rules, check their blind spots, because in Sydney lots of people don't check their blind spots when they are driving."
He added people are more patient when they see a learner in Orange, giving way to them most of the time.
