My dd has had her license for two days. It’s pouring rain. The kind where you can’t see the car in front of you. I am not letting her drive to school in it. She has never driven on her own in rain like that. Possibly if there wasn’t a ton of road construction in addition to the rain I’d let her go on her own. As it is, I’ll drive her.

License for 2 days, but how long has she been driving?

Seven months. But never in the rain like this. The opportunity hasn’t ever come up. She has driven in light rain and mist.

It doesn't matter what people think.

I agree with you.

Well, you could go with her but let her drive. This way she gets experience but you're also there to give instruction if needed. Win/win.

This is exactly what I was thinking. My DH did this the first few times my daughter drove in the snow. They need to learn and it is always good to have someone there to guide them just incase they get worried or have a concern.
