My oldest daughter is 17 (will be 18 in September). We got her the permit book when she was 16 and she took no interest in studying it. After a year and a half of the book just sitting here, my Husband told her that he was taking her to take her test and that she better study the book. She probably picked it up twice and failed the test. My Husband just took her again this morning (and she knew a week in advance but didn't pick up the book until last night and set it back down after 5 mins) She failed the test again. This girl just got a 100% on a Calculus test so learning what's in the book isn't the problem but I don't know what the problem is. Has anyone ever gone thru this? I don't know what to do, she has to learn how to drive and it's weird to me that she doesn't have any interest in driving. Help??Answer Question

I didn't get my license till 19. Be happy, this isn't anything you should push on her..it's a privilege anyway not a right. Plus it will keep your insurance down and she can use public transportation.

I didn't get my permit until I was almost 17. After seeing my cousin's car that he was killed in, I had no desire to drive. My parents finally made me get my driver's license my senior year. I would just sit down and talk to you daughter to see why she doesn't want to drive. Respect her wishes but at the same time let it be known that you may not be able to drive her everywhere she wants to go. The time will come when she is ready to drive, until then be thankful that you know she is safe and sound at home.
