    15 or 16 was when I got my permit, so learned to drive their about. I didn't want to learn how to drive, but my mom sort of made me. She was like I'm not going to drive you around everywhere, and dragged me to the dmv. the hardest issue I had was parking, so she took me the day before the test to her parking garage at her work and had me practice parking and backing out as I always would turn the steering wheel the wrong way when I was in reverse. 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
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Something I got hit on was when they asked me to stop the vehicle; I put it in reverse and then drove a few yards but I didn't physically turn my head around to look first (even though I knew nothing was behind me), I just used my rear view mirror. That's a no-no. That's definitely a rookie mistake looking back on it, but if driving is completely new to you, you may make it too... Also, when coming to a stop sign make a FULL and complete stop before going through. A lot of people will just slow way down and roll through it (some call it a California stop ), never fully stopping. They'll fail you outright for that shit.

    I started learning at 15, but was done with Drivers Education school at 16, and got my license 6 months afterwards. I was the only one in the class whom had never practiced at all before the class. I was nervous when it came to other people testing me, and driving other's vehicles.. but when I was on my own, in MY car, my confidence normalized and I felt comfortable doing it. Now I drive, on average, 2 hours a day at least. (Gas is expensive ^_^;

    My sister Jessica I started to take out to practice driving at night around the subdivision and in the parking lot of the walmart... and MAN was that scary. She just didn't have a natural feel for it, and even now she's a stiff driver and can't learn to take corners well.. she doesn't wreck or anything, she's just scary to ride with. I'm glad I endured it though since she passed her drivers education with my help.

    I learned to drive as soon as I could reach the pedals, so at about 7 or 8 years old- this is rather common in farming communities where the kids do plenty of work as well. I was driving on the country roads at the age of 8

    I got my license on my 16th birthday- unfortunatly they don't give those out earlier in farming communities

    I could ride a motorcycle before 10 yo, but never bothered myself with learning to drive.

    I was 19 (I think?) when I got a learner's permit. I got a real license shortly after I turned 21.

    I don't remember exactly what age I learned, I think I started learning pretty young, but for sure I was definitely driving around in a car by myself when I was 15. This is not legal in calif and my parents didn't know but I was a stupid kid. Luckily I never got caught.
