Ok, let's start at the beginning. About two years ago my brother in law got a really, really good deal on a really rundown '86 mustang convertible. He got it for under $2000, and only wanted it for the summer. He put a alot of work into it(him and his brother did it all themselves) and it runs really well, it just needs a new paint job, and is pretty damn rusty in parts. Well, anyways, because him and my sister are having a baby(due June 5), they were gonna try to sell it. they figured they didn't need it anymore and they could use the money. Then on friday, while they were cruising around in it, the radiator basicly exploded. It needs a whole new radiator. He didn't feel like putting it in and spending the money and going through the trouble of it if he's gonna sell it anyway, so when I went over there today, he told me I could have it. For free. I just need to put a radiator in it. Wooooohooooo! This is probably the happiest day of my life.

Uhm.. don't you mean 66? Batman wasn't on TV in 1963.

How do you get a license in the US?

How do you get a license in the US?

In most states, you can obtain a driving permit at 15 (which allows you to drive only when a trustworthy adult is present) and you can apply for your full drivers licence at 16. Written tests are required for both, and a driving test is required for the license.

Actually you get your learners permit at 16, and can take the test for your liscence a few months later as long as you have taken drivers ed, etc. And then you have to wait another six months before you can drive with "peers" in the car.

It varies state to state. There's no real set guidelines.

Isn't it the law to always wear a ten gallon hat and carry a loaded six shooter in Texas? Add Lady Liqour to the mix and I wouldn't want to administer a driver's test to you...no way in hell.

Actually, it really does all depend on the state. Here you can get a permit at 15, or a school/work permit at 14. for those we have to pass a written exam.

at 16 we get our POP liscense, wich is basicly a middle step between permit and full liscense, by passing a drivers exam and eye test.

then at 17 we get our full liscense, and only have to pass the eye exam.
