Following up on this thread, we have a new driver in the family. He passed the driving test on the first try.

His style of driving now is slightly on the cautious side, which we are thrilled about. We don't expect that to last, but we are enjoying it while it does. He did a fair amount of the driving during a week-long family vacation recently, and he exercised excellent judgment the whole time.

When he has developed a high enough comfort level that he starts taking chances, we will do a street survival course and some autocross practice days.

Buying his first car has been delayed by the financial reality of major house repairs due to a washing machine hose disaster. Insurance is covering almost all of it, but of course we are taking the opportunity to upgrade flooring etc. during the reconstruction. Replace your hoses now, especially if your laundry room is upstairs.
