That is because we live in massachusetts, alot of other states you can get it at 16, like vermont.
My opinion is that they should make both the permit test, and the lisense test Alot harder. So that there is no age requirement, but whenever you can pass the test, you can get your permit/lisense, age has nothing to do with it. We should really be weeding out the dumbasses. Insurence rates would go down, and everyone would be happier.
I finally made an appointment with the DMV to take my driving test, so I'll have mine (if all goes well) by next week. I get to drive my parent's old VW hippy van, which is awesome because I can fit my DH bike and a ton of other stuff in it.
I got my permit around 15 1/2, and I've been 16 for a few months. I've been a slacker though.
well same here except for the pulling over thing. the arresting thing was for curfew of all things and the parties were completly my fault. did i mention i got away with all 4 things? im not pushing my luck annny more
I got my first speeding ticket two days after getting my license. I actually wasn't speeding but got passed by some guy who was, when the police officer looked up from the radar gun he saw me. A case of mistaken identity. Went to court and the oficer dropped the charges after talking to him in the lobby.
that's my point: i have pure testosterone coursing through my veins.
(the car is officially totaled btw. prolly going to get a miata to replace it come spring to go along with the expedition i'm tooling around in now. with regard to the miata, should i practice my lisp now or later? )
