I wouldn't. Ds's childcare is 15 minutes walk from home. I only got learners permit. Last time I wanted to practice driving, so dh drove us to the childcare, we dropped ds off and I drove the car back with dh sitting beside me. I almost had an accident two minutes away from home. It scared the hell out of me. I

No I wouldn't. Back before we had kids, we lived in a very small country town. We lived on the outskirts so no traffic etc. Dh decided instead of walking the 100m if that to a mates place in the rain he would drive, and got pulled up 3 houses from our place! Unlicensed, unregistered and uninsured.

I Would not drive on public roads unsupervised on my Ls.
In saying that, I have lived in a small country town most of my life, before i was 10, i was "driving" cars - aka sitting in the drivers seat with someone beside me....Straight down our driveway at idling speed...Then as i got older, we would drive them at dads work (acreage, dirt/gravel or sealed road) at very low speeds - once again idling.
But i see doing it on private property...with no children in the car a completely different situation to driving in public, on roads with other road users and children in the car.
A week before i was able to go for my Ps my mum suggested i drive myself to basketball... she was very ill, and dad was working away... It was at 9pm at night...on back roads id driven all my Ls career, and i was very confident........ I Still didnt do it, and insisted mum call one of her friends to take me. It was too risky for me.
How long until you can go for your P's?? I would seriously look into it if you are considering it
Also... something id ask myself... Would i send my son in a car with an unsupervised reasonably confident exhausted L Plater? ...
HELL NO! Too risky!! So i wouldnt do it myself

I wouldn't either. Illegal, irresponsible, uninsured, exhausted, unlicensed, inexperienced and in frosty conditions.
I'm glad you decided not to.

No, I wouldn't.
I would worry too much about the possible consequences should I get caught, or worse, have an accident (you would be completely uninsured).
