    If you believe even a half of this post, you are severely mistaken.

    I'm 19 and I can't drive (having permission but lacking ability) .
    I wonder, is this a female phenomenon ?

    hehe, I don't even have a driving licence and in my case it's a nerd phenomenon or possibly a female nerd phenomenon

    *sings* "I am seventeen, going on eighteen......"

    In my country, 18 is the legal age to drive, although you can have your student's driver's license at 16. I am seventeen, yeah, and I still haven't ridden a motorcycle (EVEN!) in my entire life yet. Once I turn 18, my dad will send me to a Driving School. But actually, based on the mom's experience, those schools don't actually teach you the real way to drive. They're more concerned of you not bumping their car or scrape a scratch on it. Instead of going towards the middle of the road, they say "You can manage if we just keep on the right. You'll do well." But where is the experience in that?

    And besides, it's a hellish experience to drive in my country. People don't follow the rules, drivers are reckless, traffic cops ask huge amounts of money for them to "bail you out" (but they keep it for themselves anyway). Too much traffic also! Philippines won't be Philippines without the issue of traffic.

    I am looking forward to the experience brought about by driving and actually having the capability to, but not here in my country.

    Oh, I thought this thread was committed to cars only. But then I can announce that I'm the proud owner of a motorbike. And yes, that one I candrive .

    Riiiiight, guess who made it through driving school but still managed to bump her parents' car ?? .

    Also 18. 18 is quite a liberating age here. In America I think it's 21.

    I would someday love to own a Mercedes-Benz. But I think I'm shifting to Renault now because come March next year, Kimi Raikkonen's driving for Renault!!!! Waaaahhhh!!!!! And Fernando Alonso's filling in for Kimi's helm as a McLaren-Mercedes driver. As if Juan Pablo Montoya's flight from F1 isn't bad enough....

    I hope Kimi's potential will soar high in his new team. Well, that's a nice thought, considering Renault managed to produce Alonso, the youngest ever to win the Formula One Championship at 23. I am not biased so I will say that Alonso's the next Michael Schumacher. *doing the Alonso-monkey dance*
