A Special Final Word to Parents Remember – a driver license examiner spends less than minutes driving with your child. Just by virtue of the fact that it is an examination, this is a special trip. Most applicants will perform at their very best level during the examination. Just because they perform at the passing level does not necessarily mean they will always use those safe driving procedures after the examiner is no longer in the car. The driver license examiner can evaluate a driver’s competence, but the responsibility of education and teaching that child to drive rests with the parents or concerned mentor. This means that it is wise to continue to monitor your teen’s driving performance even after they have been issued a driver license.
