The drive to drive

My children have been off-the-chart weird about learning to operate a motor vehicle. Neither Drummer Man or the Drama King got their license until well after the age of 18 (driving age here is 16).

Z-man turns 20 in August -- and STILL doesn't drive. Not because he didn't give it a the old college try, because he did.

But because he scared the holy crap out of himself ... and me ... and even his instructor.

This is what I commented there -

Z-man will become a world famous chef and have a chauffeur anyway, so he doesn't need to learn to drive.

I can relate, I didn't start driving until I was 21- and only because I needed a valid ID to get into bars.

my youngest scared several years out of me, too. But she's a good driver now.

I can't imagine waiting to drive unless you lived in Manhattan. Back in the good old days, we could get a day time driver's license at 15 (you were allowed to drive at night at 16). I was on my way to get a learner's permit on my 15th birthday and struggled to wait the weeks required to try for my license. Driving is HAWT.
