Newly-Minted Driver

After six months of supervising driving time, I finally have another new driver: my son passed his driving test this morning. Apparently the examiner agreed that it was too slick to have expected him to stop for one orange light (it snowed heavily last night) and was impressed that he took his test in a stick shift (his preferred option, the suburban, was in use - it also impresses examiners). So he passed. Now comes the really fun part: finding times when we are comfortable letting him drive by himself, short drives outside of town when the roads are bare and dry, so he can build some confidence and experience.
