I hear you Ilikai, but I guess I just don't agree with forcing Joan to get a driver's license was an important lesson. I just don't see her fear of getting behind the wheel as something that needed to be overcome when she's so young. I don't see it as a "needless worry" - it's a rational and sensible, not just for her but for anyone who drives. Plus, what's the big hurry? Taking the bus or riding a bike aren't bad options, especially for a teenager.
