So I'm 17. I finally have a job. I have money. I have a car. Now, I would've finally gotten m license yesterday, but some DPS magic held me back. My dad was my driving instructor and he signed all the paperwork. Turns out that because he got a DWI over thirty years ago when he was 18 (idiot) he cannot legally be my driving instructor, so now I have to do the driving time all over again. I don't really have to do it again I just have to wait 20 days and then have my mom fill out all the paperwork instead of my dad...So someone please explain to me this. How is it that my father has a license to drive a commercial vehicle, a license to fly a plane, a motorcycle license and a regular license AND he is a CERTIFIED FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR yet he cannot legally teach me how to drive (and he is a great driver who has turned his son into a great one as well). How is it that he can do all that, that he can teach legally teach someone how to fly an airplane, yet he cannot teach his own son how to drive a car because of a DWI from over 30 years ago. He has had a clean record since mind one or two tickets....who makes these rules?
