DS got his license!

April 12th, 2008 at 08:40 am

He is a strange boy, doesn't want to drive. Finally I just told him he was going to go take his test this week and if he flunked so be it.

He didn't flunk (knew he wouldn't)

So at 18 he can now drive himself and I am no longer a chauffer.

YEAH! Plus his insurance was cheaper since his grades came up this year (Senior year easy classes)

    I know an adult who is scared to drive and never has. This really puts a strain on his economic life.

    FrugalSon doesn't seem to care one way or the other if he ever drives. It just isn't on his radar. We are going to use his income tax refund to buy some parallel parking lessons from a certified driving instructor. That seems to be his only holdup.

    His driving himself is definitely on my radar!!

    Congratulations to him & you on his accomplishment- Grades & license both!

    My DS was inspired to bring his grades up to honor roll when he got his insurance bill. It went down over 400 with honor roll. Insurance is expensive in my area.

    The grades do help alot in most cases. When I sold insurance, one of the first questions we'd ask parents of teenage kids was whether they had a B average. If anyone has State Farm, look into the Steer Clear program too. It's a program available for free to young drivers (under 25), as long as they haven't had any accidents or tickets in the last 3 years, or as long as they've had their license (if they haven't had it 3 years yet).

    It's basically just a trip log book they complete over a week or so, and a DVD they watch. Then you sign a sheet saying they completed it & turn it in to your SF agent.

    In most cases, the Steer Clear discount saved parents more money than the Good Student discount. If you don't have State Farm, you may want to get a quote from them, we almost always saved money for families with teenage drivers overall. Just a thought. Smile
