Wahoo! Jason passed his drivers test!

Even in the pouring rain! He's one proud dude! I know y'all are thinking, hey isn't he older? Yes, he is 19, gonna be 20 soon. But I didn't mind him not driving, I was fearful for him, a couple of years ago my friends son was killed at 17 in a car crash. He'd only had his license a few months, well that event made me not push for Jason to get his license. I know I put my fears on him, but I'm glad he waited. Being older and wiser has made a better and more careful driver. Yea! Congrats to my son! Now, I can send Jason to pick Jacob up from school now! (sneaky laugh)
Hoping everyone is having a wonderful day!

Congrats to Jason! I don't think it's bad to wait. I was 17 when I got my license and my (twin) sister was 22. I think there are too many 16 year old drivers out there who lack the maturity to understand the great responsibility of being behind the wheel.

Congratulations Jason!

You are never to old to get your license.... I am proof of that one as I am 38 and getting ready to take my driving test for the first time. Although, I had reasons for waiting so long... my 2 oldest kids are telling me to hurry up because mom has made a request of them... no one gets their license before mom... they can get permits just not licenses... they are understanding about it. Thank God.

Again, Congrats to Jason!

Congratulations to Jason and kudos for you. There seems so much pressure to allow kids to drive as soon as they are "of age". I remember that pressure - but since my birthday is in November and it is snowy in MN at that time, my parents made me wait until spring...and it was hard to be the "only one" without a license. But I am thankful that they did because I had some friends who got into bad accidents during their first winter.

Congrats. to Jason. My daughter waited until she was older too (graduated high school and ready for college). She wasn't in a hurry to drive, and with us only having one car, she wouldn't have been able to drive much anyway. She was able to be a bit older and more responsible, and we didn't have to pay higher insurance rates when she would hardly ever have been able to drive. Worked out great, she's 26 and never been in an accident yet.
