My niece came to live w/ me @ 16yo.
Ramona Mom to 2 great kids and wife to one wonderful hubby since 1990!
So happy for my niece - she passed drivers ed!
30 hours driving (2 at night) & 3 months w/ her permit before she's eligible to take level 2 drivers ed.
50 hours & 6 months & level 2 certificate = eligible to take the road test for the actual license.
Assuming we get all hours within the allotted time period, we could potentially have a licensed driver in August. OR - girly turns 18 in November.
I'm very happy for my dear niece but freaked out at the same time as my 20yo DD totaled her car last week. While sitting at a stop sign waiting for traffic to clear - another driver making a right turn onto her street lost control & plowed right into the side of her car, careening her into a telephone pole! He hit right in the middle of the drivers side, but luckily the brunt of the force was to the back door behind the driver. We thank our lucky stars that DD was able to walk away from that mess.

I think you are doing the right thing with getting her into driver’s education.
I feel the same, while at times it would make life a whole lot easier, there is nothing to be gained by rushing.
DD also got too busy to take the road training, but I've finally signed her up starting Feb 20th. She's already 16 1/2, which is old enough to get her license here, but just didn't have time to do the training and the 40 road hours. It would be easier on me if she could drive, but other than that, I see no reason to rush such an important life skill.
