Did you let your 14 yo get a driving permit 'right away' when they turned 14?
The age here isn't 14.
The age here is 15, and I let each of them get it on their birthday.
You can't apply for a permit in KY until you are 16.
In Mass its 16. Yes we did. Our children got driver deucation classes as a 16 yr birthday gift. Dh took them on their b'day to get the permit and then drove around with them for hours.
You can get a permit here at 15.5 and you have to have it for 6 months before you can get your license. My DS was lazy about studying for the test so he was about 4 months late.
We did not nag or push him to study because we believe that getting a license is a responsibility and if he wasn't showing enough self-discipline to study then he was not ready to deserve a permit. The extra time was probably good for him as his maturity has developed quite a bit over the last year. My advice is to be honest with yourself about the maturity level of your child.... If you don't think he understands that driving can be dangerous, then don't put him behind the wheel, no matter how old he is or what his friends are doing. And make him work for it so he understands it is a privilege.
Nope, miine had to wait until 18 to be licensed. I am not a fan of teens behind the wheel...especially mine.
Can't get her permit in MA. until 16. Junior operator license at 161/2. My daughter just turned 15 so she has some time.
Can't get one til 16 here.
