after you got your drivers licence what was the car you drove everyday, was it new, your aunt tillies or did you drive a wreck until you saved up money to get the car you wanted. also what age are you allowed to drive in your state including farmers licences.

hello max my first car that i got when i received my drivers license was a brand new Chrysler Cordoba. my Dad bought me that car for my high school graduation present. it was a very nice car, and it even had a sunroof in it. the Chrysler Cordoba was white with maroon interior in it. i think that my seats were the leather seats. and years ago when i got my driver's permit, i was around fifteen and a half years old maybe? lol been so long ago, i cannot remember. lol but then i think that i might have gotten my driver's license when i turned seventeen or eighteen. i really do not remember and i think all of the laws about the ages of driving has changed over the years and they are different now as to when that i was going to high school. take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

I was given a brand new Chevy because my parents love me more than poor parents. I wrecked the car months after and they got me a used Camaro as punishment. I felt so humiliated driving this used car to school.

i haven't bought a car , though i've been considering it these days, luckily, financial storm struck, which makes me reconsider and wait and see. Interestingly, i know many people who have passed their driving tests years ago, yet they haven't bought or even driven a car yet. Why? because the expense percentage is heavily tilt. In my country, buying a cheap car will cost a white-collar a whole year's income,(without spending a penny ideally). another reason is the need of buying a car is not urgent. Taking buses and cabs are very easy. so, you see? they just hold it and renew it year after year without touching the wheel.

I drove a powder blue 4 speed honda civic which was my father's car. He gave it to me in my senior year because back then you could drive at 17. I think now the driving age is 18 although I'm not sure. It didn't have air conditioning and only had am radio but it got me back and forth and for that I was grateful!

I am 26 and have never actually owned a car. I always just drive my parents. When I first got my liscense (you can get one at 16, but I was 17 before I got mine), the car I drove the most was a Chrysler LeBaron. It was practically mine, cause I drove it most, but it wasn't in my name. It was old. It was a 1989 and I started driving it in about 2000. But it was a fairly reliable car. The power steering in it was bad so it was REALLY hard to turn corners sometimes haha. Despite that, I still loved that car.

I got my first car when I was in my teens, it was a canary yellow Mini Cooper, just like Mr Beans . I used to get the piss taken out of me sometimes, but it was a great car and I have very fond memeroies of it. You can drive when you are seventeen here.
