It’s happened! I’ve added another role to my life as a Mum – I’m now a driving instructor for my son! Although he won’t believe it if I tell him, I actually look forward to those moments when we are in the car together …… well ….. most of the time. If I’m totally honest – sometimes they end badly!!!! On the most part though, it’s a great experience for us both, bringing us closer together. So – I’ve created a page to record some of our progress so far, and then, there’ll be another page later on I’m sure, to celebrate another milestone.
For those of you in America, an “L Plate” is what Australian Learner Drivers have to display on the front and rear of a car to let other drivers know that there is a Learner on the road. For the most part – this system works really well, with experienced drivers knowing to allow that extra bit of patience, care, and room for what can be a very stressful time for brand new drivers. There are of course, those drivers that feel like they need to get past that “L Plate” driver at any cost – a behaviour that I totally don’t understand as it’s not just stressful for the Learner, but also for the instructor. In my part of the world, a Learner Driving License can be obtained from the age of 16. Then they have to drive 120 hours in various weather and road conditions before a Probationary Licence can be sat for at the age of 18. Once achieved the driver has to display a Red “P Plate” for the first 12 months, and then a Green “P Plate” for the next 24 months – so a total of 3 years Probationary Licence displaying plates before a full license is issued.
