Who here has a learner's permit? Getting one? About to take the permit test? The driving test? Ever taken driver's ed? Stick or automatic? I got my permit just over two months ago and had to take thirty hours of driver's ed (insurance break!). Right now, I'm still learning to drive and only know automatic. However, my parents both drive stick, so they're going to teach me stick later. Today, I drove to the Christiana Mall from just outside of Philly, so that was the first time I was on the highway for such a long time. That was fun. Anyway, I just thought it would be cool for people to share their driving stories, learning stories, etc. P.S. I know this is a rather tame thread considering some of my previous ones, but I just want to lay low about that for a little; I was sick of people saying I'm sick for talking about sex. BTW, if your "driving experiences" include sexual escapades while in a car, I don't want to hear it. Let's keep this thread clean and unlocked, shall we? EDIT: Ten awesome points for whoever can tell me what my signature is from.
