Who has been procrastinating his drivers permit/license?

Being 16 and living in the US, I should be all thrilled about driving just as many other, but I am not. I want the ability to be able to drive, but I do not think I am ready for the responsibilities of driving. Also, I don't think it is such a urgent thing.

Am I just insane or are others who agree with me?

LOL I procastinated. I got it like 2 weeks ago and I'm 18. But I need it for college. Eventually you will WANT to be more free. You don't want to rely on friends or family. I mean I got tired of listening to my friends music so I got my licensce.

Also, you avoid public transportation, have more time for yourself.
I have another friend who got his licensce at 18.

I'm way past 16 and I don't plan on getting my license anytime soon as I panic easily as a passenger. My State ID does it for me.

I disagree. Bananas and ass are like peaches and cream.

I'm waiting too.
I want to get it, but I never get my mom to sign me up or whatever has to be done
#10
I'm not too thrilled about getting my license either, I can't afford it yet and my parents keep nagging me about it. I need a job.

Out of interest, how many lessons on average does it take for you Americans to learn how to drive an Automatic car?



1, but in massachusetts we have to take 12 lessons required by the state in order to go for our liscense, then once we have our liscense, we can't drive anyone for 6 months besides family.

Massachusetts has the harshest driving laws EVER!

I'm 20 and haven't even taken my theory yet, or done any lessons.

Better yet, how easy is the test? VERY easy. One driving test, lasts like 10-15mins, and then bam you have your licensce. That is if your 18. If your under 18 (the lowest is 16) you have to pass a written exam on road signs and alcohol facts before you can take the driving test. At least here in Florida.

I turned 16 quite a while ago, but my parents are the onces procrastinating. I ask them nearly every day to go to the DMV and get my permit, but they consistently refuse.

Yeah, in a way.

Not procrastinating on the actual license, I want it as soon as possible. I'm lazy when it comes to the process.

Here in VA we're supposed to write down all of our driving time while we have our learner's permit. You have to fill in the date, time, how long, how far, whether it was day or night, and whether it was rainy or sunny. Once you get 40 hours, you can take behind the wheel training.

I haven't filled in any days, but I've drove at least 40 hours. I just hate filling in that damn little chart.

I'll do it one of these days....

#19
we have to take a class, for the written part, and then we have to have like 6 driving lessons. after that, you need 50 hours with an adult

I could have gotten the license in February, but I didnt even end up getting the permit till March 25th. I'll probably get tired of my friends carting me around and get my restricted license in June or July sometime.

I agree. I waited a year 'til I was 17 to get mine. No damage done and I have more trust from my parents. Most of my friends with their G2 licenses (drive by yourself) drive like complete morons anyway. I'm not worried, I didn't mind waiting a bit.

I plan to get it the day of my birthday or right after (too bad my birthday isn't until the literal end of the year).
#24
I've been procrastinating for a long time. I'm 18 now and I still don't have my license. It's not that I don't want to drive it's just that every where I go to around here is withing walking distance of my house.
#25
I should have started driving not the december just gone, the one before, but no, I'm 18 now, still nowhere near, I just have better things to spend my money on at the moment.

I did it for a whole year. I was just lazy but now i look back at it and it was kinda dumb, being able to drive is extremely handy, especially with the ladies if you take 'em to dates or dances.
#27
Going on 20 here and I don't have mine. I'm cool with it though. I'm getting it this summer for when i transfer to a university, but in my hometown there's nothing to do so I figured I would save money on gas and insurance.

I haven't procrastinated. Here's how it works in michigan:

once you're 14 and 8 months you can take drivers ed 1, 3 weeks, four days a week, 2 hours a day. during which you have 6 1 hour drives. If you pass those, at the end of the 3 weeks you take a test, pass this and you get a learner's permit.

after having that for at least 9 months and with 30 hours of logged drive time, you go to segment two. Segment 2 is only 3 days, 2 hours a day. After that you take another test, this time a harder one.

After you pass that you have to log 20 more hours of drive time. Then you can take your roadtest. It's a 45 minute long driving test where you have to use your own car and be able to parallel park and stuff. If you run even one stop sign, you fail and have to pay for another test. (all this crap costs money too).

Once you pass that you have to wait until your 16th birthday, then you go to the secretary of state and take a vision test. Then you get your license.

Yes, it is a maaaaaaaaassive amount of BS, but it's worth it once you have your license for your highschool years. Oh and now they're trying to say we can't have more than 1 person in the car until you're 17 or 18, after all that sh*t you go through to get your license.

just turned 16 a week or so ago, i'm taking the test in a couple weeks. I procrastinated a bit to get it, but I should have it by summer. I'm kinda nervous to drive, but i'll get over it eventually.

I'm 17 and I don't have a permit yet. I plan on getting it this summer, although I said that last summer and it didn't happen. But I am sure it's going to happen this summer.
#32
I still don't have my license and i'll be seventeen in a week. I can drive a stick and an automatic, and i know i'd pass it if i just got my ass down there...
Everyone else wants me to get it more than i do. Everywhere i go: "Did you get your license yet?!" "Nope..."
I'm not excited at all about getting it, when i get it, the best part of it will be shutting everyone up.

Same, except I'm 19.

Although, I would have more uses for it now, but I'm still not too enthused about it though.
