Daughter just went out on her first driving lesson with an instructor. We came into the house as she was talking to her on the phone asking her to meet her down at the corner because she was afraid to come in and out of our driveway on a 5 lane road. Huummm!

Bob; Good luck I still can't get Shelby to drive yet. She makes me run to town for all the stuff! Even at 18 she feels she still does not need to drive. Mark H.

Mark you need to fix a shopping basket to the 3Point hitch of that Massey and say there you go.

It's fun to watch youngsters learn to drive, but watch out!!!
After three lessons, she'll be telling you how to drive. LOL
Good luck and have some fun.

Well, after over 30 years as a DE instructor, I'm going to make some guesses here - (Forgive me if I'm a little punchy, just got off the road after teaching two kids parallel, angle and perpendicular parking, tonite.)

If instructor was coming over to pick up student, (we don't do that anymore,) and student would be driving from there, probably the teacher wasn't about to put a brand newby in the position of having to start off driving through that. Our office/classroom is on a sideroad that crosses a main state highway. We turn left out on to side road, and go down a mile and turn right to get into town the back way, rather than turning right and having a left turn onto the state highway. Way too hazardous, too many deaths on that corner! We may be crazy, but we're not stupid!

Didn't notice the instructor gulp a handfull of beans before she took off Ray but the two other instructors both drove in here to get the kids. Anyway she told her to drive right in and she could turn around to go back out. Maybe this is a hint we should be movin out a here anyway.

It is dangerous up in those mountains.Take that kid to the flatlands to learn driving.I learned in a ricefield before I could see over the steering wheel.

Clod, my cousin could drive a 3/4 ton Merc pickup when he was 8 yrs old. They shouldn't have let him drive on the road but they did. He was a bit gifted around farm machinery though.
