Actually that's a good point! I did that at first. I was really excited for him so I recommended to go to a racing course at limerock racetrack. He somehow took this as offense to his "driving skills" and told me he doesn't need any lessons. He then begins telling me he wants my help teaching him to drive a manual. That's when I knew he wasn't ready for the car. He thinks he's a pro driver. Cockiness + m3 zcp = crash.
