have a heart, I have humble suggestion please forgive me if you feel annoyed. request your lady wife to take driving lessons, give her support & enough confidence with liberty to be on her own for a while kids you can drop & pick-up be her responsibility, for safety & security & peace of mind.
Hiring new drivers is very HIGH RISK these days. Once they are familiarised among school gate keepers the kids their friends tutors the family the visitors the near dear relatives they leak minute details and schedules to criminals at petty price.
Keep one thing in mind, uneducated pair of helping hand is RISK because their primary objective is to make money not to protect your property or family, gone are the days when NAMAK HALALI was more important then than ME & MYSELF.
Please don't feel annoyed by my suggestion, am sharing it out of experience from my very family & extended family.
