Progress report

So. Last Saturday, Asher completed day one of Master Drive's drive camp. It's a special "add-on" to their drivers ed program that teaches skills like crisis braking, crash avoidance and visual processing. Students also get to experience their skid pad and practice how to correct out of a skid. All of that is completed on the private driving range (no other traffic) and concludes with a parent "recital" where Nathan and I got to ride along as Asher drove us through the course a couple times.

(Yes, this is the same program we had Noah go through the summer before he got his permit.)

Sunday, he finished the classroom portion of drivers ed and took the written test, passing with flying colors. :)

Today, I took him to the DMV, and (in relatively short order) he officially got his drivers permit!

This coming Sunday, he'll finish day two of the drive camp. He'll get more practice at the skills from last weekend, plus more time working on skid correction. 

Then, next Monday, he'll have his first of three two-hour on-street driving sessions (with an instructor in actual traffic, in their drivers ed vehicle).

After that, we'll be logging the required 50 hours of driving and 10 hours of nighttime driving and waiting the full year with the permit before he can take the driving test and get his license.
