bbnbama - Good luck with the driver's permit! My son just got his license in December. He has one of those restricted licenses for one year - no driving between midnight and 6 AM, only one other person in the car he's driving except for immediate family members living in the same house. He's been doing pretty well, and as far as we've been able to tell, he hasn't broken any of the rules. He's always home on time (because he knows if he's later than we say, we'll take the keys away!!!). It's a very stressful time. We worry and worry about them out there with all the other crazies on the road, but at the same time, it's actually easier, because I don't have to schedule appointments for him around my schedule. He can just drive himself!
