Today, my teenage daughter got her driver’s license. Less than an hour later she wrecked my wife’s new minivan. FML

I wouldn’t let my kid drive alone after getting there drivers license, until I was comfortable with the way they were driving. Just because they have a license, they are still new to driving and might not know what to do in all situations. When I first got my license I hated driving on the highway cause I was afraid of driving fast and getting into an accident. Now all I do is drive on the highway and I can eat, drink (not alcohol) and smoke a cigar while I drive.

Should've given her more than a quick crash course before letting her get her license.

Just because a person is licensed to drive does not mean they should do it on their own, in a car probably larger than the one they took lessons in, less than the time it takes to buy a coffee later. Kinda deserve it tbh...

Ummm... YDI for allowing her to drive a new vehicle. Sure it sucks but I still get anxious to drive new/newer nicer vehicles and I've had my license for nearly 3 years now (not long but I'm still much more comfortable). We scrape curbs and make little mistakes when we're still learning, we should never be in posession of a new vehicle for a while, especially without someone ensuring we drive correctly and safely.

That's why you NEVER let a teenager drive a new car - even WITH adult supervision.

That's what you get for owning a minivan

Of course she did. What self-respecting teen can be seen is such a piece of shit? With the insurance money, get her a hot car and your wife a bus pass.

You let a teenager drive a brand new vehicle?

My first one was a refurbished 12 year old car. I didn't wreck it but even a total loss wouldn't have been that big a deal.

I think my parents had the right idea. I never drove their cars after I got my license. It was about 3 years before I drove again, and that was my boyfriend’s car.

What was the point of getting your license if you weren't going to drive again for another 3 years?
