Congrats, you have passed the minimal expectation the state mandates before letting people drive.....

I would also consider investing in a defensive driving school, so you can learn what to do and what NOT to do in case of emergencies and evasive maneuvers as this is where 99% of accidents happen with the other 1% being people who don't give a hoot and do dumb things anyway.

things to learn are vehiclular dynamics and how they differ from a sportscar and an SUV, throttle control (when not to gun it and when to let off on turns curves etc..) steering (when to steer with slides, how to spin out to stop the car fast, how to induce a controlled slide with the steering and gas pedal, etc. etc. etc.....most of all, how to change your driving habits to match that of the changing environment such as rain, snow, hail etc....

I would consult the DMV or CHP as to what schools they recommend,
you may get a discount from our insurance co if the school is recognized.

cheers
