Hello,

My husband's here on a CR1. Does he have to have a temporary liscense? or can he just take the tests?

Thank you in advance for any assistance in this matter.

Mrs. J

My husband has been diligently studying for week. I printed it off the Internet in PDF.

He says he still doesn't want to drive until he needs to.

After all our learning experience, I feel afraid to send him out into the big world in a vehicle.

How did your hubby handle this"?

He drove with me until he felt comfortable going out on is own. He would drive and I would be the passenger and give him guidance. I got him a book and he diligently studied the laws. Now he has a CDL licence and he ia a professional driver.

That is great! I laugh how much he reads and studies this book. I would skim through the night before the test.

Today I talked to him about the road as we drove teaching him about signs and lines.

Are you sure about this?? I called the dmv yesterday about this very thing. They told me they can only drive on their international license here if they are a student?? I'm not doubting you, just frustrating when two people get two different answers to the same question.............

I can't wait until I do not have to be the driver. I think it is good right now, while I deal wth the learning curve of other things that I keep driving or reduce my coffee intake .
