I live in Florida and here they are sexist towards female drivers at the DMV. All my friends and I had trouble getting our liscenses because they kept on failing us..and then my guy friends would brag about how they missed this and that (the same things we didn't get right) and still got their liscense.... CRAZINESS :loco:

Hey, congrats to your son!!! I remember first getting my license and how FREE and GROWN UP I felt :) I'm sure he's on top of the world right now :)
sacausa, that's terrible that they'd be sexist at the drivers' place -- although actually I think they were sexist the OTHER way when I got my license way back when in Massachusetts.... pretty girls usually were allowed to miss more things than guys!!! I know when I went, I was allowed to have my drivers' ed teacher in the back seat during my road test, and he and the Registry (what the DMV is called in MA) officer spent the whole time talking about baseball cards, and neither paid much attention to me. My road test took all of 10 min-- just go around the block, prove I could back up, no tricks, nothing.

lol I have to admit I had trouble parking (my only prob.) with a huge car.... I also expected that they would go easy on pretty girls.... but they almost seemed as if they felt as if pretty girls shouldn't just get their liscenses because they are pretty so they make it more tough for them which isn't exactly fair... :loco:

Congrats to your son,..one of many milestones to come in his life!
When my kids began to drive I found it to be wonderful no longer having to drive them to their 4-H meetings, after school activities, etc! Finally got to throw away my chauffeur's cap!

Congrats! We just went thru that with our son! We live out in the country so we had lots of practice- up and down the country roads, couldn't understand why when we got to the freeway why we would stop and I took over! (I still don't trust him (or is it the other drivers??)

congrats to the newbie driver. I was lucky when I took mine. I got a newbie tester he was nice kind of silly told me he use to be a garbage man. I totally messed up a couple of things but stayed calm.. He passed me and the rest is history lol
