Its right way to hold the steering.
Even when I was learning driving 6-7 years back, I remember that my trainer also taught me not to let cross hands while turning and even he taught me to turn the steering with both hands by turning 15-30 degree each time so hands don't cross while I take bigger turns.
But when we get used of car driving after driving for a long time, our mind remembers each and every thing like when and how to use steering, clutch, brake, accelerator, gears, indicators, flash etc. Its just matter of practice.
So it i advisable to new learners that don't let yourself fall in wrong practice while you start learning, becasue after it becomes your habit, it get hard to correct it.
