Driving License

Post by JoostLamers » 05 May 2009, 21:07

Just curious: How is with the driving licenses on this forum? Car, Motor, Truck, Scooter, etc.. Personally I have had 24 lessons now for my car driving license, and I will have my big test on the 30th of May (Which means I might be able to drive to the Nürburgring in my uncles new Audi Q5 :zz: ).

I have lessons in a Mercedes C-Class, super cool car, just a little bit big :p

So please tell me about your developments in this case :thumbsup:

In the Netherlands it's 18! I couldn't start immediately when I turned 18, very busy with school at that time.. But it's 17 in UK then, isn't it?

Yeah its 17. For me that's only 5 months away,though you have to be really good to pass at 17,they don't like.trust younger drivers much.

There's a discussion in the Netherlands going on about decreasing the minimum age from 18 to 17, but once you passed the test, you have to drive the first year of your driving 'career' with an experienced driver besides you...
