As of next Sunday DS will be allowed to get his license. He has officially passed drivers ed but still has to go take the driving test. Well we're trying to schedule that for ASAP.
But here's where I have an issue. I want DS to have a job & save up enough money for insurance before he gets his license. When I add him on to my policy it will go up by $200/month. I think working for a month will get him that $200 & then we can get his license & add him on.He thinks I should put up the money BEFORE he gets his license just so that he can use my car to go back & forth to work.
One of the places he is looking at is Target. A friend of his works there & she said if he puts that he can work 3-close (11pm) then he has a better chance of getting hired. The issue with that is we only have one car (no chance of getting another until income tax returns). I work until 4:30 sometimes 5 M-F. So the earliest he could go in is 5:30. That will be pretty much the way it is until we get a second car in the spring.
Am I crazy for expecting him to pay for his part of insurance before getting his license? It's sort of like a down payment for me- he gives me the money, gets his license, then we add him to my policy.
