Since pg1067 enjoys doing this to other people I thought he'd enjoy someone doing it to him.
The book part can be done online but at least in CA driver's ed must involve driving in a car with a trained instructor, which must be passed before going onto taking a DMV written and driving test.I doubt it. Driver's ed can be done online. If Parent 1 signs the child up for an online driver's ed class, I don't see how, as a practical matter, Parent 2 could prevent the child from completing the class.
Since you got the driver's ed part wrong it's probably better that you didn't answer any more questions.Of course, merely taking a driver's ed class doesn't get a child a driver's license, so I'm not sure if you intended to ask questions about the other steps in the process.
Does this question have relevance?If "both parents are responsible for education choices," why are you referring to the other parent as "the custodial parent"?
My son is coming up on sixteen years old and is a few weeks from getting his driver's license. He has a large group of friends and nearly all of them are older than him and all of them have their driver's licenses. The only one that does not have a license is the one that doesn't do any outside sports like surf, skateboard, mountain bike, etc. He is the only one that likes to stay home, sit on a computer or phone and has no outside interests. He is also the only one whose mother likely could/would not purchase him a car like nearly all the other friends have. A coincidence?The notion that a child needs a driver's license to "be a regular person" is absurd. High school kids' attitudes about getting their licenses have changed greatly over the past few decades. When I was in high school in the 80s, driver's ed was a required class, and pretty much everyone got their licenses within a week or two after turning 16. Nowadays, high school kids are much less concerned about getting their licenses. I have an 18 1/2 yo and an almost 17 yo. Neither has a license or much interest in getting one, and my 16 yo said only a few of her peer group are licensed. Of course, if your kid wants her license, that's all that really matters.
This talk of kids not wanting licenses, imo, is directly caused by them staying indoors 24/7 and sitting on the internet. Any kid that has outside interests gets tired of their parents shuttling them around... and the parents get tired of it too. And to take a leap, I think the internet, social media, gaming, U-tube, access to porn and the deadening of outside social interests has reduced their interest in girls too.
What's the age of this "child"?
As mentioned by a previous comment, the gender of my child makes no difference. Apparently my attempt to create as lack of bias did not work, often times it will be noted that i am a father or mother and then the comments are made about that and go off subject.
No, the other parent made no reason other than just stating they wouldn't allow our child to do driver's ed.
The question came up about expenses, but i have already agreed, and commented that originally, to supply the vehicle and insure it.
Living rural has been difficult for our child's upbringing, the ability to drive would assist in being able to look for work, visit friends, after school activities, things of the sort.
And to be honest, i don't care if some of you think children don't need driver's licenses. I came here for the legal response, which was thankfully given
