My Oldest Daughter Briley Passed her Driving test today and is now a licensed driver.  I am SO Very PROUD of her and all her accomplishments, but I am So WORRIED about her being on the road without her Mother or Me. Not so much because of her driving ability's, but all the idiots who don't have a clue how to drive around here. I have done my best to teach her to drive defensively, but still with a lack of experience, she still worries me every time I watch her drive away from me. I now understand how my parents felt about me, but I was also in the country in a different time. Thanks for listening to me vent.

I wish her nuttin but the best in her new adventures.  It's hard to let them drive of the first few times, I know we worried alot from the time they left until they parked in the drive. 

 

One of my daughters first adventures, she jumped in the van to go shopping.  I should have thought about it first, but it did not sink in, until I heard.... BAM!  My fairly new truck was parked across the street from the end of the driveway.  Well... someone had to do it, right?  HUGE dent.  She hit the sharp curb whilst backing out, panicked, went to slam on the brake, but.... yea.... she found out just how close the brake is to the accelerator... LOL.  I did not think it was funny then, but we laugh at it now.  That is one of the few times I had to walk away, I was speechless.  Glad no one was hurt (cept my pride of my new truck).

Congrats to her, that's a big step into being a adult. Worrisome for the parents though.

Good luck mom and dad :thumbs:

I'm going to be there in a few oh so short months!!  My oldest has a learner's permit and is driving with either his Mom or me at his side.  I'm NOT ready for this!

Yes, when they get their drivers licenses it is a bittersweet feeling!

 

Your post title scared me a little!

My youngest just got her license over the summer.  One good thing is she got her permit over the winter so she got a good dose of winter driving right out of the gate with us in the car.  I'm still a little nervous but she's been doing very well.  She's good about texting us as to when she leaves or arrives at her destination.  We basically told her that we needed an idea as to where she is and such in case something bad would happen, we would at least have an idea of where she is.  Her older sister absolutely refused to do that.  Thought it was stupid.  Look at it this way, if the DMV felt she was ready enough to issue her a license, then she's ready.  I know what you mean about the others on the road.  That is my main concern too.  That and the deep ditch along our back country road that has a lot of twists and turns.  Always an adventure.

Congrats, Briley! If you think you have it bad, try twins getting their license. Double everything!

Congrats and safe trips. Just because she has her license, doesn't mean that you have to let her take the car whenever she wants. Good Luck, Rick

Congrats.

I know how you feel, the boy got his back in April, pretty scary when he leaves for the first time on his own. It's nice he can go as he pleases without us taking him, but still there is always that little voice in the back of your mind wondering, and he's a pretty good driver.

Now when my daughter get hers.... I will age 20 yrs with that one :(
