What are your rules for a 16 year old driver in The Chat Board Posted Wednesday at 12:07 PM · Report reply 26 minutes ago, Pawz4me said: We never had any beyond obey all laws (including those that apply to newly licensed drivers) and let us know where you're going and when to expect you home. And don't bring any car--even your own--home with a near empty gas tank. Definitely these. I also tell our drivers that driving is a privilege. We pay for that privilege - vehicles, gas, and insurance. In return they are expected to chauffeur their siblings and run errands for me without complaint. They are expected to have gainful employment which they are to use for their personal expenses. We cover all the same expenses as before, but they cover their increased socialization costs. My kids work during the summer and use those earnings throughout the school year.
