I got my license today!

I took the drive test today and passed with an 89%. I got screwed over backing around a corner, but that was it. Anyway, hope to see some of you on the roads of the Pacific NorthWest!

I didn't bring my camera, so no pics to speak of, but i would be more than happy take some if you guys/gals really want some.

Congratulations, Mini! Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

I remember what my drivers trainer said to me while I was taking my drivers test,, "If you are going to hit something, don't hit a tree or wall! Hit something soft like a bush or human being,, they are softer!" He was a nut case and always looked at things from the lighter side.

Take it serious, but have fun! The road is long but very enjoyable if taken correctly!

I was planning on getting a 1441cc hayabusa. Someone told me they were perfect to start on.

Let me know when your on the road, so I can get off the road

Just kidding around, congratulations though, remember not to drive outside of your limits. You maybe think you're a good driver, which your might be, but you have a lot to learn still. You could even take some classes on advanced car control, I think they help out a lot.

Absolutely! I am well aware that I am not the best driver ever, nor will I ever be. I do plan on doing a driver skills program though.

Good! I'm a firm believer that those classes save lives.

Congratulations! I could mess around with you and tell you that my daughter, Maddy scored 100% on the drivers test,



but she also missed the same skill test of driving in reverse around a corner.

I would be dead, plain and simple, if I had access to more than 150bhp before the age of 21.

ProFormance racing school has a good teen-driver skills program. Hopefully you can do one of those courses (or similar) ...

Phew! Brit, I thought for a minute that I blew it and purchased the wrong car for Maddy. She has a 2009 Civic- EX-L

spec-1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 140 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque.

I feel safer now

Snooze is on a distinguished road
When I got my license at 15 1/2, Dad sold his Corvette and got me a 91 Explorer. Then later I wanted to buy a sports car off the side if the road, Dad said I was going to kill myself.
I laugh about it now. He is a smart man.
Now I have 550 whp and a few racing schools under my belt.
