So now you need "drivers education" to get a permit for minors...
I was recently tasked with taking this kid who is a sort of relative to get his drivers permit, he is about 16.
Apparently, at least in California, you first need to complete drivers education training and obtain a certificate. And t just so happens you also need to pay extra money for this, at least at all the options I have seen so far.
Interesting. I know I am probably late as hell on this, I got my permit years ago with no such restrictions, pay a fee, take your written test, you pass you get a permit and can start practicing driving.
No more it seems. It's not THAT big a deal, but it is annoying, extra hoops to jump through, extra money siphoned away from people. I suppose the purpose is two fold, decrease the number of minors driving in the first place by the placement of the extra barriers, and a fee increase for permits for minors if they DO go through the extra hoops.
A win win in the eyes of the lovely government of California, and for all I know, such a practice is not exclusive to the racket state.
I wonder where I should move to eventually?
