    Did any of you learn to drive at about the normal age or did you first learn to drive when you were older -- like in your mid-20s or maybe even 30s?

    How old were you?

    And if you don't currently drive, state your age.

    Certainly true. There are lots of areas where it could be expanded. However, there is quite a lot that would never be covered, as vast areas of the country are too spread out to do so. Also, realize that we may also have slightly different expectations of what is a "normal" travel distance. (I really have no idea what it's like where you live.) Personally, I am an avid skier, I wind up driving between 300 and 600 miles a weekend for 5 months a year. (That is way more often than most people, but driving 400 or 500 miles for a vacation is considered normal).


    And there's absolutely no rational reason why a city like LA should be flooded by cars. Or is there?
    They weren't big on the "city planning" thing, and wound up with a very large, very spread out metropolis, with a very inadequate public transportation system, which they are trying to rectify now. You notice that, for example, New York City, has a pretty good public transportation system, and compared to LA, doesn't have huge traffic issues.

    I disagree. Inexperienced teenagers shouldn't be driving alone. I had a lot of driving experience from years of driving anything with a motor and method of propulsion, as often as I could.

    I then went through the mandatory 6 months of "learning" with an adult required to be with you, and then bought what everyone told me not to, a sports car. A year and a half later, No accidents and No tickets.

I had no problems with going forward just back wards. I never liked driving which is why I'm glad I now live in a place that has good public transit
    it's funny are situations are different though i didn't want to drive(scared lol/hated it with a passion still do) but i pretty much had to bug the heck out of my mother to get me to earn my permit then take lessons and eventually get my license at 20.

    I remember my first time driving "alone" i accidently headed into the city area(traffic was scary i couldn't drive for 2-3 days it physically drained me) but i got back in one piece and i was proud of myself knowing how afraid i am on the road xD.
    I agree with another INFP who says they have a spaced out look but they are paying attention i bet i have that look but believe me inside i'm screaming I just want to be on non moving ground xDD.

    when i first started practicing driving I said "screw this there's busses xDD " 'i bawled haha it was some scary stuff when you just start'
    but then i thought i might actually need this so some people "mom" won't take advantage of my lack of transportation "stay here you don't got a car blah blah* not anymore lol.

    no accident yet(thank god for intuition phew mommy one time all of a sudden i realized the other car is getting too close *breaks then wipes sweat from forehead*. tend to always want to hug the ground when i get home or to a friends house seriously still.
    If i can i'd rather not drive but it's nice to know i have that freedom/ don't have to rely on others schedual or bus etc it's worth it to me .
    What is Feeling?
    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...

    I'm 24 and I still don't drive.

    I have a learner's permit, and I took the test once but failed by going the wrong way down a one-way street. I suck.

    I'm a white-knuckle driver. I hate it. Yay for buses.

    16, but I haven't driven much--I've been taking public transportation even more since I've gotten my license actually

    In my state you can have friends in the car 6 months after you get the licence with no accidents, or when you turn 18.

    I learned to drive at 14 but as early as 10 or 11 my father was already starting to have me back out of the drive-way or steer down the street. Of course I didn't get my permit until I was fifteen and thanks to my mother refusing to for my insurance I had to wait until I could to get my license (so, 17), but it all happened. Now, the funny thing is: I've never owned a car.
