One of my favorite parts about the whole process of getting her permit is that it is free! In FL, I think it was around $75 because she also had to take a 4 hour drug and alcohol course. She could've gotten her permit on her 15th birthday in FL but we chose to wait and see about the job here before she got it. When we realized that we were coming here for sure, we put the whole process on hold so as not to have to repeat courses and costs. Now I'm very thankful that we just waited. Also, in FL, it was mandatory to have a learner's permit for a whole year before being allowed to get a drivers license. But here, she will still be able to get her license on her 16th birthday!
I can't wait until she has her license! I'm going to teach her now how to do all my grocery shopping. =)
