Another Horn Will Blow, Another Milestone Passed
So, today I took my 15 year old daughter to go get her Learners License.
She has had her Instruction Permit for almost a year. However, time is getting close to it expiring, so had to get her up there. (Not to mention, I was tired of her hounding me about it.)
I am really a terrible procrastinator and have been putting it off. Actually for a few different reasons, all of which don't really hold up to well when you shine a light on them, LOL, but they were MY reasons, tried to hold out as long as I could. If you happen to have any kids around this age, you may know what I am referring to.
Anyway, here in Arkansas they have what they call a "Graduated Driver License Program".
1. Instruction Permit - Must be at least 14 yrs. old and have a license driver of at least 21 in the front seat.
2. Learner's License - ages 14 - 16 yrs. old and have a licensed driver of at least 21 in the front seat.
3. Intermediate License - 16-18 yrs. old, no more than one (1) unrelated minor passenger unless accompanied by a licensed driver that is 21 and they can not drive between the hours of 11 pm and 4 am unless with a 21 yr. old accompanies them or they are driving to or from school activities, church activities, job or in an emergency.
4. An then finally a normal Drivers License
All of the above all have even more stipulations, or differences depending on all sorts of factors.
OMG. I am sure each state has it's own way of doing things. I know when I received my Drivers License in North Carolina, I took a short driver's education class a half of semester while in school, then that summer was scheduled to take about a week where I went out with a driving instructor on the road, passed that, then was able to hold a permit from age 15 - 16. When I turned 16, went and turned my permit in for my real Drivers License.
Here they didn't even offer anything like drivers education class or a driving test like that, unless you want to pay and arm and a leg for it. (At least that was my opinion).
Anyway, she has until November when she turns 16.
Going to try and see if we can get a "Hardship" License, which comes with even more stipulations attached.
However, with different issues with my health, being the only parent at home, having younger siblings and all needing to be different places at different times, OH, and let's don't forget my trying to make things work here online, so my time is always taken up, I am hoping we can get one.
It would help, however, I have a feeling they are going to be really picky about the qualifications. Won't know til tomorrow though, when I go see what forms they need filled out. For some reason, they wouldn't give me much information over the phone.
I think I was more nervous than she was today. But it all came out fine so far. But of course, now there will be the increase in insurance, again. Actually, it just recently went down due to my oldest son turning 22.
Oh well, that's life, right?
