I was peaking into a local high school website to find out about a certain program they run for teen moms.
While I was there I noticed this! And had a flashback to getting my license when I was 16. Thirty-eight years ago! Okay, you do the math. Your brilliant, you know how old I am!
So there’s the notice about Driver Training!! It appears that the course is wrapping up.
Students scheduled for Drive Times, remember it is a privilege to have a Learner’s License and it is mandatory that you make your Drive Times. Please check the schedule posted in the office, and on the office window, to confirm your Times. Two missed Drives result in serious consequences***
The bottom line is SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES – not getting your license would be one! I guess, getting kicked out of class would be the second one!
I know that a lot of kids are just waiting to get behind the wheel and we have some incredible sponsors on our Harvard Broadcasting stations that offer incentives for student drivers as well as those vehicles that you can buy at a great price!
Really, the first car you own, does it have to be something posh!! I mean, are you driving a Land Rover! (I wish.)
Ideally, who wouldn’t want a car that you actually get to be hands on with; I mean checking the oil, filling up the rad and the windshield fluid and changing wipers, testing the tires! Now cars, suvs and trucks are complicated machines.
Remember when guys and gals used to gather after school OR at lunch time and work on cars – it was a project in shop! I think those days are done!?
Close to home, I watch as new drivers practise parking, pulling up to STOP signs and sometimes changing lanes. Generally trying to ease their nerves and become confident in their new skill set.
I remember getting my license on April 27, 1978. I was cautious yet still pulled it off. To this day, parallel parking is still one of my favorite things.
The current state of drivers is something else! And it leaves me thinking that refresher courses are not a bad thing.
Going to a motorcycle school and receiving that license definitely reacquaints one with various rules of the road!
Happy motoring and remember, be patient!!
