The car finally gets sorted

Regular reader to my blog, and followers of my moans on Twitter, will know that I’ve been having car issues for a while. Three months to be precise. I won’t bore you with ALL the detail, but in a nutshell… My son passed his driving test at the start of October, after only three months of lessons. He was enjoying driving and I was enjoying having another driver in the house to take some of the pressure off me. At the...

Having a teenager who can drive

When my son passed his driving test a couple of months ago, parents of older teenagers told me it would change my life. And I didn’t believe them. Because he wouldn’t have his own car.

Driving for 5-10 year olds with Young Driver and Firefly

Last year, I reviewed Young Driver for 11-17 year olds, and my two boys were lucky enough to have a driving lesson. My daughter, who is 10, wasn’t old enough to try – and was a bit disgruntled! So she was very happy when Young Driver launched driving lessons especially for 5-10 year olds in a unique Firefly vehicle – and she got to have her own driving lesson.
