Rubbish, the point is, if it's fitted use it.
Your approach presumably means that, on a car so equipped, ESP should be turned off for a learner driver?
Please either explain with what you're disagreeing, or re-read what I wrote without a preconceived filter.
"I've never understood this idea that the ABS should not be activated. To threshold brake takes good feel and practice, something most drivers don't have because they haven't developed it. Basically you need to stop the bloody car if someone steps out in front of you. There's no time for the niceties of not activating the ABS."
Now, if you want a learner to emergency brake in an ABS equipped car without activating it, you would be best to pull the ABS fuse, so long as it's only for that. Club motorsport folks do this on their road cars for such as PCTs.
