I started driving a two wheeler at the age of 14 and a four wheeler at the age of 17 years, but I got a driving license at the age of 23 and 32 years for 2 and 4 wheelers respectively. Now-a-days I am seeing persons driving at the age of 6 and 10 years. What about you? please share.

I am 26 and I have never started driving yet. I have heard people talking about driving a lot that it is a good stress breaker and interesting experience. I am so eager to learn it. I have only tried to ride a bicycle for many times, but I couldn't balance the cycle.

It is a say in India to 'start early to reach destination safely'. If you start early there is no need to rush to reach your destination safely. Typing, swimming and driving are considered to be safest live saving devices. You can save lives of many by doing so. By sending a message of any emergency, saving a persons of drowning and taking a patient to a hospital early and save his life. Please learn it early. Thanks for responding this discussion.

I started learning how to drive an automatic van (a StarEx, because my father said that it's better to learn how to drive with a big car because it's easier to adjust to a smaller car then) a couple of years ago while I was in college. However, now that I'm at work, I don't have the time to practice. I'm thinking about attending a class for it but I don't know if I should take it now - I know I probably wouldn't have time to practice after my driving lessons so I'm afraid that I would just forget my lessons. I wonder if I should just take my lessons later in life. Or if there's a way for me to make it a point to be able to drive at least an hour each week after that :) Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

It is always good to attend class in a driving school. They will teach alfabets along with advanced caution instructions. Once you learn it there is no question of forgetting the lessons. More you drive more new things will be learned. Practice makes man (also woman) perfect. Typing, driving and swimming are considered to be the best things in life to learn. In case of emergencies you can save your life and also others lives. Once practiced will never be forgotten. Thanks for your response.

Let me remember. I think I was around 12 years old when I first drove a two wheeler without help and 14 when I first drove a car without help. I'm 20 now and a decent enough driver of both categories of vehicles. I have my driving license for both bikes and cars but I still don't understand the need for one. I mean with the test procedure here, anyone without much driving skills can get a license as I found out when I got mine a couple of years ago. And you've seen people as young as 6 ride two wheelers? Now thats a risky proposition. I could barely keep my feet on ground when I first tried riding a two wheeler. I guess parents need to be a little more careful while letting their children ride bikes and cars.

Oh god you have started early. Now a days any one can get a valid license, but a true driver is always a winner. Best driver is suppose to be not a person who drives a drives carefully, but a best driver is who can avoid an accident and drive safely. When speed is there there is possibility of risk. So, every parent to take of their children (minors) to be more careful of their risks in driving. Thanks for your response.
