Get off the Roads!!!!




Yes, once again I am the parent of a Learner driver!!! This is my third go at it, child number 4 is on the road. Child 3 has absolutely no interest in getting his licence, at the moment he has very little interest in anything much apart from 'Living the life!' whatever that is.
It has been bad enough lately, everytime I pick up my car keys, my little dog hears the rattle and is at the car quicker than you can blink. She loves a drive. Now the rattle of the keys will have her and my Teenage son waiting at the car.
Wish me luck, I think I am in for a lot of Road Rage in the next two years and most of it will be IN the car!!!!!

Oh Boy! Fun times ahead for you, I can only imagine what lies before me with our three, going by my own experience as a learner it doesn't look pleasant! Good luck x

LOL.....just wear your ear plugs and your bicycle helmet ...and grin and bear it.....and remember...it's nothing that can't be overcome by a good stiff drink and a lay down when you get home xxxx

Oh boy...I've got a learner in our house too,(first one of 3) and she isn't always to keen on getting behind the wheel, but needs every ounce of practise she can get...and like the others all say...we can always have a stiff drink and lay down when we come home!
good luck, Julz

Think I will just send him with his Father. Then I can stay home and have the stiff drink anyway, in peace and quiet!!

I truly sympathise with you. I have a 50hr learner and a 120hr both on the go, with another daughter ready to get her L's any day now. The 50hr has about 10hrs to go and I am ready to pay the driving school for 3hr to convert to 9. The sting in the tail is that very soon I won't be able to use my own car...then I'll go from being 'the best' (when a lesson is on the cards) to the 'worst mother in the world'!
