my eldest has failed 5 so far and to be honest I am happy, I know that sounds harsh but he would be such a boy racer!!
He is going to leave it for a bit now until he is older, and maybe a litle more mature too :-D

Thankyou ......... Oh I do hope so too this time ... I get the feeling he will give up if he doesn't pass this time .......... his girlfriend drives & I think he will just get complacent with her doing the driving !

grrrrrrrrrr back seat drivers :x

arrrrr i am having a similar dilemma with my youngest and that is only about her starting school. I am over the moon as i know she is ready but then the realisation sets in that they are growing up so quick. Still im not too bad as this is the middle child and it will be the next one that will really upset me

my son passed his test last October-trouble is we cant afford the insurance for him on a car! To have him on my insurance bumps it from £340 to £2,900!!!
He is off to Uni this year (gulp!) so is working part time to get enough funds for insurance! He's gonna have to do a LOT of hours!
I know how you feel tho- I am worried about him going out on his own when he eventually does get his own car

Yes and no. On one hand the tedious chauffeuring is gone and the lessons and the test, plus they can come and get you after a night out. On the other the other , they're not only out - unsupervised and unprotected - but they're out with other drivers. :w00t:
There is always something to worry about with them.

Should be happy for her but I guess it's ok to feel frightened for her too. You got to let her go at some point and this is part of that point. :thumbsup:

yes my daughter wants to go to the uni about 45 miles away from us and drive there every day, my daughters insurance is only £1,100 in her own right with Swinton perhaps you coud look into it, it wa £1,100 whilst she was learning on her own car in her own right so a lot cheaper than putting him on your insurance

Thank you all for replying and making me feel a little better, this place is such a great sounding board, this morning before her test I wanted to come on here and write how I felt because I knew there would be someone on here that would make me feel better - what a great place this is.
Again thanks to each and every one of you for taking the time to reply X
(I just wish she would ring me the little ........)
