    I Passed!!!

    It was so scary...on the way up I was fine....but when it became my turn, my nerves were off the walls. I was so scared that on my last turn of the test, I accidentally pulled into the wrong lane. He yelled at me, and told me to get on the other side. He said with experience, I...

    It's a Necessity

    I really enjoy when someone else is driving.  I especially LOVE public transportation & wish that I could take the train daily.  Unfortunately, a requirement of my job is that I have reliable transportation & use it to travel around the county.

    Hooray Indeed.

    I started taking Driver's Ed at the very youngest possible age (in Michigan, at least). I was fourteen years and eight months. I got my permit soon after. There was some things I learned early on from my father, such as... if you miss a turn, don't make a u-turn in the middle of...

    I Got My License Sometime In September This Year

    I needed a driver's license in order to drive to school so I got one. It has added more baggage and new opportunities at the same time.  I think overall it made my life better.  Getting my license was easier than my driving-coach made it seem.

    I Only Have It "Just In Case"

    I really don't like driving - it's dangerous, frustrating, bad for the environment, and gas is expensive. I bike everywhere, and the only times I am in a car are generally when I take the long haul to college. My boyfriend drives then - I'm in charge of water, snacks and the...
