Milestone Accomplished – Driver’s License is Obtained!

Driver's License Personalized Christmas Ornaments Female Blonde

As our children grow up there are so many milestones we celebrate!  (Of course, we have personalized ornaments for all of them!)   It’s walking, talking, potty training.  Riding a tricycle, then a two-wheeler.  First Day of School.  First lost a tooth.  Then Braces!  Each little step moving through childhood toward becoming grown-up is acknowledged along the way with pride and fun traditions.

 Your Child is All Grown Up with a Drivers License!

Many of these milestones are more important to the parents than they are to the child.  But when it comes to getting a Driver’s License, that’s a big one – for that is long-anticipated, studied for, practiced for, and really is one of the first true steps to independence. That’s why we have special personalized driver’s license Christmas ornaments to mark this occasion.  The ornament is a picture of a driver’s license, with a girl or boy’s head on it, and a big car key!  We add the name and the year, and the state to make it like a real driver’s license.

In California, a student can get a learner’s permit at age 15 1/2.  They are required to study the California Driver’s Manual with all of the laws of the road and to take and pass a lengthy examination.  The student also is required to take a certain number of hours of private driver’s instruction from a certified organization.  California used to offer driver’s training classes in the public high school system, but budgetary restrictions have taken those classes off the roster.  It is now up to the student and parents to find and pay for private instruction.  After having the permit and passing the 16th birthday mark, the student can apply for a real driver’s license and can enjoy driving to school, classes, sports events, and the like.  There is still one restriction.  A newly licensed driver cannot drive with other kids in the car for six months!  The state of California feels this restriction has lowered the number of teen driving accidents overall.

Custom Holiday Ornament Gift Idea

Here’s an amazing idea:  Give your student a driver’s license ornament and attach the keys to a car Christmas gift to the ornament!  Imagine his or her surprise on Christmas morning when the little box with an ornament is opened in front of the family.  Yes, some confusion, what is this?  An ornament?  Ohhhh it’s a car key!  And the car is waiting out in front of the house.  What a fun Christmas morning for your new teen driver.  Thank you, Mom (Mrs. Claus) and Dad (Santa)!  And Merry Christmas with safe driving ahead.
