I'm very happy for you. When I got my drivers licence about 7 months ago, it was horrible for me. I got 3 driving tickets on my first week of driving and in total I lost about 11 demerit points.

In holland you have to be 18 to start driving.

It's an expensive PoS but it's a good system on some points not tho.

You have to take a theory exam, just the traffic rules and things about the car.

You have to take driving lessons, (they teach you all things to get you save on the road)

Then you can choose for an pre-exam in there you need to perform some special actions (parking in a line, 180 rotation on a road etc.) The exam gets you two things, one you get a feeling of a real exam, and two you can pass the special actions so you wont get them on the real exam, and you get some hints.

Then the real exam, it's just a short drive from arround 30 to 45 mins, the examinator looks if you can drive safely and responsible.

I got 1 theory exam (passed it at once, only 1/2 passes the first try)

I got 25 driving lessons.

Didn't do the pre-exam

And passes my exam in 1 try. Overall I did a little below avarage.

Its very similar in Canada also but the difference is that you only have to be 16 to start getting your licences.

I made a 96 on the written test, but it was as easy as anything considerring I had drivers ed drilled into my skull for four hours a day for a week just a couple of weeks prior. The guy before me spent at least a half an hour on his. I picked up the test, sat drown briefly while I answered the questions quickly, and got back up with a 96.

The driving part was simple too, they didn't have me do anything hard. I was nervous, but I managed to do everything with no complaints except parking. I'm still working on that... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I hate driving.

I take my Bike everwhere where I live. For reasons as following

It has a higher velocity.
I don't need to worry about parking space.
I don't need to give it any gas (Other then my own stomache's needs!)
It helps me stay in shape.
It is a hell lot more exciting then driving.

To be completely honest, I fear driving a car. Since I don't see any depth, as most of you know, I fear corners and most of all, parking with cars around you.

I bet that would make parrallel parking rather rough. Me, I've been driving for 24 years or so now. I can tell the difference from when I was younger. When I first started driving, I'd go about 2 mph through a parking lot, because I was nervous about a car backing out in front of me. Now, I do about 20 through parking lots, because I pay close enough attention that I know I can stop if a car starts moving. Back then, I was always worried about fitting the car through gaps. Now, I can judge the gap size and fit through a matter of inches.

I hope I can follow the path you took Quillan.

If I would finally decide to try to get my drivers license I'd be damn scared trying to estimate the distance between "my" car and the Mercedes SLR Mclaren behind me, when parking in front of it.

That's what I meant. It's impossible to estimate distances for me. I never was able to get close to the real distance. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I aced the written part but failed the driving part once lol, the only reason I passed the writtin part was because every single day for like 4 weeks we'd have to stay 3 hours after school, it was ******ed but w/e.
