Interesting read. I can't say that I agree with all of our Presidents choices, I do like a lot of them. I'm glad to see Snap is getting looked at. I think the infrastructure grants are something to look into as well.
If you're driving it on the road, yes. If you're just driving it in the field, I would think not. For insurance purposes I think you would want to be licensed so you have no issues in case of an accident.
What are your thoughts on your kids driving small machinery to help out? My ten year old has been bugging me to drive the smaller farm tractor (Farmall H). I don't see a problem with it but my workers do. I would of course be right there and teach him.
