I got my permit this summer and I took a drivers ed course. I wouldnt consider that real driving because you can't really screw up when you have an instructor with a gas and brake pedal. Today, I drove for the first REAL time with my dads 2007 altima. I started out great, I drove for about 30 minutes without an flaws on the highway. When I turned around to go back home, i started running into some problems.

When coming off the highway, I accidently went into the wrong lane, cutting some guy off.

A car was in my blind spot and when I tried to get over, I realized that I was about 2 feet away from crashing, luckily I didn't.

When pulling out of my neighborhood onto another street, this guy was coming. Well, i didn't see that he had his blinker on. When i pulled out, we almost crashed....

So yea, that was around 2 o clock and I just went out a few minutes ago, and i did much better but still


anyone have any funny, or not so funny first time driving stories?

EDIT: i have a permit, not a license. I am 15

Try driving in the northeast where if you slow down 3mph to make a turn you get the finger, and 4 second horn, and a very italian sounding line of curse words

The first time I drove with my dad, I pulled into the driveway and almost rammed the garage door (our driveway is a steep mofo, so I thought I'd have to gas it a little.. not so much).

Other than that, no. No funny stories. Then again, I've never driven on any main roads. Just neighborhood roads and the back roads.

What the hell is this about a permit? Here in Ontario (and all of Canada I think?), you have to be at least 16 to get a G1 license which means driving with a licensed driver in the passenger seat. Someone enlighten me?

Thats what a permit is, then after x amount of months (differs state to state) you can get your license

When I had my license about 2-3 weeks I backed into a parked car near my friends house and took off. I was scared ****less for weeks.

When I had my permit I was driving with my dad and I brushed up against another car somehow and my mirror fell off.

That's basically the same thing as a driving permit.

first time i drove a car i was hung over and the person i was with laughed at me for most of it

Some fuck head cut me off (the lanes were kind of confusing) and it ended up as 2 cars trying to squeeze into 1 lane beside each other. It was pretty awkward too... we both stop... wait for one of us to go... then both go at the same time. Kind of like when you're walking in a hallway and someone is in your way so you both move to the same side.

Cool. I got my license ON my 16th b-day. It's been about 5 months, and I already got a dang speeding ticket. I didn't care about paying 101 bucks (I make that in a day) but the insurance is raping me up the anus.

thats my group! I wasn't a terrible driver when I first started just some things the instructor said quickly..our drivers ed car was an 07 chevy impala SS and it seemed to either barely go or kick down fast.

I was at a stop light with cars behind me and I was looking around and he's like ITS GREEN!!! so I floored it with my quick reaction times. and squealed the tires pretty damn good taking off across the intersection. it was pretty funny, got the instructor laughing.

I've had my license all summer now.
