    I went for my permit test and I passed. 1st time. The center that I went to is the only one that doesn't do the test by computer. I had 18 questions that were multiple choice and I had to refer to pics from a book. But I must tell you that I have studied for the past 3 months. I only missed 3 1 more and I would have failed. I wasnt thinking on my last one though I put down a stupid answer. Well. Time to learn how to drive.

        How do licensing systems work in your states?

        Here in Florida we have a graduated licensing system.
        A learners can be had at 15 (must drive with an adult over 21), and you get your license at 16. However, at 16 you can only drive between 7a-11pm alone, and at 17 you can only drive between 5am and 1am alone. If you are under 18, you must have had your learners for 12 months before you can test for a license. I think its pretty decent.

        Florida (especially Miami) is such an autocentric society, if you dont have a car... you're pretty much screwed! So I'm pretty happy with our system. It also makes for a good driver I think. If I compare myself to when I first started driving at 15, to now... I can certainly see a difference.

        Still, some stupid teenagers make us pay the insurance rates we do.

        Oh well

              The new system taking effect on Sept. 1st is something like you have to have your permit for like 6 months to a year or something, and after that there is something else.

              I forget because it didnt effect me.

                      The New System effects me! BUt i have to have my permit for 6 months until i turn 16 (which is really 9 months for me) but having my permit i can't drive without a person over 21 i can't drive past dark. Our permits aren't paper they are now actually cards. after our permit we then get a license that says that we are under 18 then after that we get one that says that were over 21.

                        Takin It To The Road.

                        I drove on the road for the first time today.
                        It will be interesting to see how I handle the situation of when I am behind the wheel and the tones drop. It will definitely take good judgment on my part.

                          Out of all the times I have driven in the last 2 months, the tones haven't dropped once. So I am still waiting for it to happen.

                              Well I have been driving for almost a month and one Friday they went off but my mom wouldn't let me drive downtown. Oh well. To be honest with you it has been dead quiet here since that Friday.
