Good heavens and gracious!

My daughter just passed her driving test, on the first go!

And, she's only had a handful of real lessons (with an instructor), maybe 8 or so. I thought the Swiss-driving mafia required 20+?

Now she'll want to use the car all the time.

SNAP, my daughter texted me on monday with the news. I am now rendering my cars undriveable and therefore unborrowable. Is that golf still for sale???

In the other thread, I read that as an excuse by those who just weren't up to the standard required but couldn't admit it.

Well done to your daughter. Remember - it's your car!

Me too, but the change is hilarious because I don't know what was wrong with they other one and it isn't looking better! Who would say that? Probably the JW in my other thread!

Amen brother

Alas, she's not on this forum.

She is trying to get my car keys, though!

If you had a boy, I'd suggest painting your car pink with yellow polka dots

Well, at least she doesn't have a motorcycle license for big bikes yet, and it will be a few years before she does, so I'm safe there for a while.
