Driver's Ed with the Bates Family


It's time for Josie Bates and Katie Bates to learn how to drive! You would think that after teaching nine children to operate a motor vehicle Gil and Kelly Bates would be professional driver's ed instructors, but as you'll see in this week's episode, it's still a chaotic ordeal.

In the extended scene below, Josie and Katie join Kelly, Lawson, and Carlin in the 15-passenger van to learn the basics.

    1. The middle girls (Carlin, Josie and Katie) are becoming more and more present, since the older ones are all married off or dating.

    1. Do you offer to pay for the gas or pay for the time you are using from the people who drive you to get groceries? They sure have to pay those things.

  10. Just surprised at all the kids in the car and noise distraction when trying to teach the girls to drive. Didn't seem safe. Love the show though
