    O/T drivers license in Louisiana...the final chapter

    DANG... why so
    much??
    In Ireland I had what we call "fully comprehensive" insurance,
    basically covers you for EVERYTHING, no cap on claims and cost be $350
    a year, the policies there are much better than anything you can buy
    here.

      Last year I was driving my dad's old 1991 Buick
      LeSabre with no fancy features, and paid minimal insurance premiums.
      This year when I bought the new car, it zoomed up. Some of it is an
      added fee that Honda requires. Naturally! Oh well...I absolutely love
      the car! It's well worth it.

          Ouch! That does not sound right. Were you inquiring as the spouse or
          SO? My auto premium did not go up a dime when adding my UK spouse (may
          have even gone down). Not happy with the homeowner's policy now, so
          shopping again (ack).

              Well online it just asks how many drivers there are, does not mention
              anything about being a spouse or not.

                  Congratulations to you both!

                  Mr. Pink studied the Rules of the Road for
                  several weeks before he went to take his test. We had all our
                  documentation ready to hand over, but the minute he started speaking,
                  the lady behind the counter looked at me google-eyed and crooned, "don't
                  you just *love* his accent?"

                  I had brought a book to read for when
                  he took the driving part of the exam, and I swear he was gone literally
                  5 minutes. He came walking in, smiling, but I thought for certain he
                  must have crashed the car in those five minutes---why didn't it take
                  longer?

                  I suppose it was because he was a licensed driver for a long
                  time in the UK and had driven with me quite a bit before taking the
                  test. Or maybe it was just his accent.

                  Congratulations again---
                  another hurdle jumped!
