Please pray for me & my son (lol)

My son failed his drivers test last thursday and is able to take it again today. He took failing really hard, he is high functioning Autistic. He drives well, but rolled through a stop sign. Part of his problem is he has had his permit a year and he is comfortable driving and did not apparently hear me when I said the dmv worker would be a stickler. I am getting ready to get him to the dmv in the next hour, so please pray for him that he passes his test. We are car shopping in the next two weeks so I would like him to have his license before we buy the car.

  • Let him know that very few kids actually pass the first time. I know a tester who did NOT pass any teenagers the first time unless their test was perfect. Those kids were the best drivers when they came back. Talk to him before he goes and remind him of stopping at a stop sign.

  • He will do great! Just talk more about how the tester will want him to obey every sign and be very careful. GL
