DS did driver's training earlier this year. I paid $350 for 6 hours of behind the wheel with a reputable company - 3, two-hour lessons. The first lesson was an hour and 40 minutes because there was paperwork to complete. The second was an hour and 45 because he was being dropped off at dad's and they got to the area early. The third was a full lesson, but for highway driving, they got on the highway and got off at the next exit. That's it, just one short run on the highway. If it weren't for the fact that we've been driving with him for a long time, I would have really raised hell. So he takes his driving test. Here's what it consisted of: back up, go forward, and parallel park. Then turn out of the lot, go to the next street and turn, do a 3-point turn and back to the lot. Less than 10 minutes total and BOOM you have your license. No wonder there are so many shitty drivers in this state!
