I think it is necessary but i am not having driving Licence and i think we need have that one. Have you ever tried to get one? I think most of the people we can see on the roads without the Licence but they don't bother about it but they like to drive so are they need to have the licences.

I've had a Driver's Licence for many years and I can't imagine living without one. Along with my own car it has been wonderful being able to go wherever I want without relying on someone else, it gives me independence. My sister does not drive and she is always procrastinating about getting a licence; she won't appreciate how great it is until she is driving! Driving without a licence should not ever happen!

It is really good to get when your 17 years so did you find any difficult to pass out the test? because most of them feel that , that is really big one so is easy one or difficult to pass the test friend.

Depends on the need my friend. If I need to go cycling all day long then I will do that. When I learned how to ride a cycle, then I used to cycle for around 2-3 hours every day in the early morning!

Hello Dasari100, Yes, I do have a driving license which I got in 1999. So, I have been driving for a decade! I think it is a necessary for us to have a driving license. It makes life easier especially when you have to travel a lot and during emergency time.

It is necessary to have a driving license because we are in the 20th century and more traffic on roads so in the all the way it is necessary for us. Have you face any problems while driving car on the road?

Hello Dasari100, Oh, I encounter many rude motorists while driving. Driving is no longer fun for me right now. If I can find a way, I will choose not to drive. It is just add to the tension that I already have while working...

Yes, I have a drivers' license. It is illegal to drive without one. I can't imagine why people do that as it will only lead to trouble if they get caught without one. Are you not required to get one in order to drive?

I didn't get still now but i am looking forward to get one because it is necessary to me to travel some places on bike. I have pass out before getting the license so have you done hard work for that one?

I don't know how to drive so I don't have a driever's license yet. If ever I am going to drive a vehicle (after my driving classes) I will get a driver's license for sure as I want to be a lawful and abiding citizen. Every driver needs to have a license.

Hi Dasari! I do have one. There is a great penalty involved here if you drive without one so most people get them. The age here to get one is usually 16 and when they turn 16 they are ready to get one..lol..I think that 16 is a little young to get one and be driving but that's just my opinion. The police here wet up what they call road blocks and check the license Of everyone that passes through. If they don't have one..they will not let them drive. If they can't find someone to come and get their car right away..they will tow it away to an impound. There is an expensive fee to get it out..plus the money for a ticket. Sometimes they will take you to jail if you've been caught more than once. It's better to have one.

I think most of the time police don't want to leave us if we don't have license, Here also in the same they will treat us anyhow as soon as possible i would like to get one so i need to spend time and money to get that one.

Even i caught one time without license so it is bad to go without license but they didn't leave us until we pay Penalty so have you ever caught in this way?

I do have a driving license. It is really important to have one when you drive considering that you can never tell when an accident may happen. You will definitely be in big trouble if you drive without having a drivers license in our place. I have been driving for the last 12 years when I started working and until now I do drive my car or sometimes my motorcycle.
@Dasari100 (3803)

Anyway it is best to have one so i am also looking forward to get , but getting pass tests is not easy so we need to have patience and money, Have you ever spend money for that one?

In the USA you need to have a DL to legally drive, if not, you'll get a ticket.

Driving without a driving license is an offense in my country. Getting a driving license is not easy neither cheap. Before a person can learn driving on the road he must attend a theory class and learn practical like changing car tyres and checking fitness of the car before he can learn to drive on the road. Unlicensed road users are dangerous drivers as they can cause accidents if they do not know the regulations of the road safety.
@Dasari100 (3803)

But here it is not necessary to go for theory classes but anyhow having good training in order go get License so i have been trying in this way so i may time some time. when you got your license?

I have a driving licence, but I haven't used it much. I hate driving and I am definately not very good at it. I failed my drving test many times and I was very close to giving up, but I was too stubborn to give because I felt that I would have wasted a lot of time and money if I gave up without passing the test. So I continued and in the end I finally passed the test...but my driving licence is not very useful for me, because I hate driving and I always avoid it

When you spend lot of time certainly you loose money so Are you really interested to get one license? why most of the time people fail to get license.

Hi there Dasari100 I do have a driving licence to drive a car and a motorcycle too. I would hate to have to take my test now as it a lot more expensive and there are a lot more things to do for the test than I had to do when I took mine!

Before getting the Licence we need to do lot of things especially passing tests is not easy so we need to try work out lot of things before.

I don't think it is necessary for everyone, especially if public transportation is available in their area, or they can get from place to place by other means, like riding a bike or walking. Plus, driving isn't for everyone. So they rely on other forms of transportation. As far as myself, I think it is very necessary to have a driver's license, seeing as I live out in the middle of nowhere! LOL But even if didn't, I love having my license, because I can drive myself somewhere without relying on someone else to do it for me.

I have one but right now I do not drive because I do not have a car. I plan on getting one real soon but walking is really good for you. I like that I do not have to pay for gas and car insurance though. Take care and happy mylotting to you as well.

Dear friend, I do hope driving should be made as a part of school or college studies, so when the student passes either 10th grade or 11th grade that student should be passed driving test also if not he should be given a chance in 12th grade class. I hope instead of licence just show the passed 10th or any above class identification and those who had not gone to schools or college may be given a special licence. Hence I feel all those who are above 40yrs could easily be analysed.

Yes!I own a driving license for two wheelers.It is a must for anybody who come on roads mounting any vehicle.A license holder is expected to know the traffic rules and bound to abide with it.But the sad part is even license holders ignore the traffic rules and drive with crazy minds.
