A Scary Thought!!

Today I renewed my drivers license - it is good until the year 2014.

When my dd heard that, she remarked: "Hey - maybe by that time I will be able to get my license and we can both go and get our licenses together!" The thought of my daughter driving in only 6 years, is unbelievable! She says that she plans on getting her license AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so she can have some fun ;) Maybe I'll get lucky and she'll decide that she wants to wait until she is 27 and married, and then she will have her husband teach her to drive (like mom did!)

Dd turned 9 in August, so six years from now she will have just turned 15 and Missouri law does allow driving at 15 when accompanied by a qualified driver.

I checked out the MO law and this is how it reads: "Under age 16, you may drive only when accompanied in the front seat by a qualified person, grandparent, or qualified driving instructor."

My question - does that mean a "grandparent" is NOT a qualified person?

Mother and daughter getting their license at the same time! Think of it as quality time!

I'm a grandparent and I often feel I am not qualified to do anything!
