no offcourse now <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
just started my lessons today <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

1 thing I noticed is the small feeling of speed you have; before you know you drive way to hard, like 90 in stead of 80.

I know but driving a car isn´t very difficult, believe me. I´ve got my driving liscense for 3 years now and (thank god) never had an accident or any other serious problem. Believe me it´s not difficult. You have to be very responsible though!

my uncle was very proud that he got a driving licence in Europe, in Germany specifially. Seems over there, accross the sea, they care about how well you drive actually.

Specially on that one road, was it called? auto bon or something, lol.


well, keep on trying JvB, and sometime you'll relise, "hey, that last time, I didn't hit anyone! wow, maybe not drinking that beer before the test WAS a good idea!"

don't forget about the old proverb
'when one gets a driving license one suffers the curse of lazyness'
JvB protect yourself from this curse before you get your license.

I have a licence. I just refuse to get a car. Life is much cheaper and I get a lot more exercise. I had a car for a while while I house sat for my father. I gave it up very happily. I became lazy and started to feel like a taxi.

Good for you; speed limits are for weenies. And most people don't know how to handle cops, either. Most people see the lights in the mirror and calmly pull over to await instructions from the officer.

That's wrong. The correct thing to do is to floor it. Gun it. Make him chase you. Make him work for it. This makes him respect you. But, just for fun, be sure to have your turn signal on, indicating that you're going to pull over. After a few miles, when the confusion sets it, you suddenly whip a 180 and head in the opposite direction.

While he recovers from this maneouver, you pull over, get out of the car, crack open a beer and kick back on the hood without a care in the world. Have your lawyer on your cell phone by the time he catches you, and simply answer every question with "talk to the cell, tough guy."

Works every time. Trust me.


... so I stripped down to nothing but a Super Big Gulp cup and rubberband, and ran up the street screaming "Swing me, gringo!"

My friend's boyfriend tried that. They sent 8 cop cars and a helicopter after him. Once he pulled over, he was pulled from the car and beaten until he couldn't walk. Thankfully they didn't hurt her as well. Why she's trying to find evidence to keep him out of jail, especially given some of the drama's since then, is beyond me.

Yeah, I drive Alex's car quite a bit. It's handy given that we work together. Otherwise I walk everywhere or use public transport.

i've my driving license for almost 9 years now but i drove (yes, not drive but drove) for only 2 years or so. can anybody say after me; lazy bum?

my bro drives me to work as we have the same general direction. plus the economical & environmental reasons, all i need to do is help pay for fuel & stuff which is more than fair for me.

a colleague asked me which car i like best, & i answered 63" plasma display.

go figure. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
