doubt he will learn his lesson at all - mummy and daddy will pay his fine; he doesn't really need to drive so loosing his license for a year won't hurt - and even if the university does kick him out (and they quite possibly wont for fear of missing out on fees) he doesn't really sound like he is there to learn.
