Teen Drivers Ed

Am I brave or what? I checked around to all our local drivers ed locations and it is a whopping $375 cash, or $400 if paid in payments. Wow ! That is alot of money for me these days and since I had put all my other 4 in drivers ed, it was a given with my youngest. I just couldn't believe the prices and how they had jumped so much. Actually, where my oldest daughter lives (many hours north), the price is much more reasonable, but it's also in another state so that wasn't going to work either. With my teen, I have had the very good fortune of her doing well in school, listening to what I have to say and I found it quite beneficial to call around and find out about the parent-taught drivers ed, and just thinking about it sounded like alot of work, but it was only $20. I filled out the application that I found online, printed it out and sent in my check....now I have to wait for the packet to come back. I am hoping and praying that this will be something that isn't too difficult because I know that there are many lesson plans in the packet. Well, wish me luck. Oh, and by the way, I did call my insurance agent and discussed with her the amount of insurance that will raise with my daughter.....she said that while she is on a permit, she is under my insurance but after that, once proving that she's a "B" average student and taking a little test for the insurance, our insurance will be less than $65 a month....I was so happy about that.

Wow! Those classes are pretty expensive. I am glad that you found something that would seem reasonable for you and your teen. I had driver's ed and it was reasonable at my time. LOL. The insurance thing seems to be working on your end too. Good luck!

Those classes are definitely expensive! I chose to shell out the money because, although I'd prefer that my daughter listen to everything I say and do very closely, I knew that she'd probably listen better if someone else told her the same thing. Of course, that's exactly what happened. I loved quizzing her though...Good luck teaching your daughter!
