So this just happened. In the state of Alabama, you can get your learner's permit on your 15th birthday. Cadence is actually 6 months behind! But she studied hard, took her permit test, passed with flying colors, & is now a permit licensed driver in Alabama.
So now she is allowed to drive anywhere & everywhere as long as Trek or I are in the car with her. We added her to our insurance & we have an "almost full fledged driver" on our hands. Wahoo.
She is taking driver's ed at school where she will first get her boating license (What?!?!? Alabama is kind of weird), & then she'll get her full license when she turns 16 in February.
