Candace Cameron Bure: My Kids Will Be at Every Taping of Fuller House

05/15/2015 at 11:30 PM ET

As Candace Cameron Bure gears up to reprise her role as DJ Tanner for the 2016 Netflix series, Fuller House, she has plenty going on in her own house to keep her busy until shooting begins in July.

“My oldest is driving. She just started a couple months ago,” she told PEOPLE at An Evening with Dancing With The Stars at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills. The former DWTS finalist was on hand to celebrate the show’s 20th season, which will wrap next week.

“[Natasha] just drives close to the house, when we need stuff,” Bure says of her 16-year-old.

But just because Natasha is able to drive doesn’t mean that her mom gives her the license to go wherever she wants. “We have strict rules on what kind of driving she can do and where,” Bure explains.

Instead of being scared that her teen is behind the wheel, Bure, 39, is embracing the benefits of her daughter’s newfound mobility. “She’s a great helper,” she shares. “I love having an extra driver around the house so she can grab the boys or run to the grocery store.”

Another place Bure might let her daughter drive her and her brothers, Lev and Maksim, is to Fuller House tapings to watch her mom in action.

“I’m expecting that my kids will be there for every live audience taping that we have,” she says. “We start in the summer so that will be great — they’ll be able to come while school’s out.”

hopefully someone tells her new drivers can’t drive their siblings

New drivers can drive siblings. Its in the CA handbook. The parent has to write a note for that driver everytime he/she drives their siblings. My friend did that for her siblings when she first started driving.

Too funny! I recognize that square ice cream cone! You get those at Rite-aid’s ice cream counter. Nice to see that some celebrities don’t overpay for ice cream cones just like us normal folks!!

Love her.

Good thing, then you’ll actually have an audience. YAWN.

It’s going to be such a snooze-fest with Bure at the helm. Her uber conservative views are probably going to make it even MORE squeaky clean than the original was. I guess that’s good for young kids though.

Wow, what a bunch of negative nancies. I feel sorry for most everybody who commented after me. You must have sad lives, unable to see anything positive here. Why even comment?

I agree Saara. All women do is rip each other apart. You don’t see men doing this to each other. What’s the point of this? I for one hope you all lead a rich and blessed life-even if some of you are less than deserving, because guess what, it doesn’t hurt my life in any way for blessings and happiness to befall you . You would all do well to remember that and quit getting so infuriated by EVERYTHING that another woman does or has these days.
