I hate driving with the instructor so bad. Omg she smells, doesn't talk, and doesn't let me listen to the radio! Have any of you had bad driving instructors? Omg, I heard that the people from the dmv that test are even worse. I got a little tasted when I went in for my temps, but wow. I highly doubt anybody that works there has every smiled in the last 30 years of their life! [/pointlessbuti'mboredandhavetodrivetomorrow]

my driving lessons made me not drive for a good 2 months after i got my permit.

This guy was CRAZYYYYYY!!! i swear to god, he cursed the hell out of this old guy that cut me off in the 7-11 parking lot. Of course, this was like my second day behind the wheel and he was making me realllly nervous.

My first day was in hurricane whatever that came up from florida. It was like soo amazingly scary for me for some reason.

no in car driving instructors let you listen to the radio. its a distraction, and you aren't even a lisenised driver. you can play the radio when you learn how to drive. for now just learn how.

Hmm... Sounds like a good idea?

I already have my temp permit, I just need to drive 6 hours with an instructor before I can get my license.

I get my permit in May. About 5 months exactly. The permit test is riddiculously easy in MA. MY friend took it, adn one of the questions was actually "What color is a stop sign", adn it was multiple choice.

When I do driving school (probably going to do it in january), I'm just gonna cram it all into one small amount of time. Just get it all out of the wya.

ya i can get my permit in 2 months, i just started taking driving lessons, i have had one every week for 3 weeks, tomorrow will be my third one. we have to drive 6 times, an hour each, and watch somebody else drive for an hour, thats stupid, ive watched people drive for almost 16 years, i dont think i need any more of it.

we can listen to music when we drive, were supposed to be able to listen to whatever CDs we want as well, but he hasnt mentioned anything about it, he will probably let us though once we have drove a few times.

We don't even need to take a class to get temp permits. Just pass the test. (Too easy. 100% on signs and 97% on other part.) Then you need 30 hours with parents. 6 hours driving with instructor, 6 hours riding with instructor. You need the class before you get your license, obviously. I just sat down, did all the homework, and sat in the class for the next 3 weeks.

Well I should get to bed, cuz I'm going to have to be awake enough to drive at 8:30 in the morning! Argh. IDK about you guys, but that's too early on a saturday.

yeah there was a lady around here like that, dunno if she's still around.

in cali, you take drivers ed, take a written test and get your permit. then you have to wait 6 months, in which time you're supposed to drive so many hours. of course, nobody really cares how many hours you drive, how are they supposed to know? :shrug: but you have to have 6 hours of drivers training. when you get that done and had your permit for 6 months, you take your license test,then if you pass you get your license.

my drivers training guy was a fat white guy who had a little hyundai or somethin. mcdonalds wrappers everywhere, musty old car smell, etc. he fell asleep when we were in traffic one time, that was funny.

the DMV is probably THE place I hate the most, ever. I wanna cry when i find out I have to go there. the people suck, the lines are longer than those to ride on a brand new rollercoaster, and after waiting in line, you get a form to fill out and wait in line AGAIN, then find out you need a certain form that you left at home cuz u didn't think u needed it...
DMV+big firey explosion=me :D

My in class instructor was quite possibly the most obvious target for harrassment I've ever met. He was well overweight, thinning greasy hair, bad glasses, bad complexion, uncoordinated, spoke in an effeminate voice, carried a book in front of his crotch at all times, you name something kids tease people about, this guy had it all.

We were only in his class for a week, but we had some of the most ruthless kids I've ever met in that class, and we had nothing better to do since you don't actually learn things in those classes...

My in-car instructor was really cool though, he used to tell me jokes the whole time, I think it was to make sure I could maintain control of the car while I was laughing, the only time he had to take the wheel was one time on the bridge. He had some good jokes.

in british columbia, we have a "graduated licensing" thingey set up

at 16, you can get your learners, where you have a big "L" to put on your car to get your learners, you have to take a test on a comp at the DMV, and you have to have it for a year, unless you have a $800 driving course, then its 6 mo

after that time, you get your "N" for novice, and have to put a big "N" on your car. to get your N, you have to take a driving test. you get it for 2 years, then another driving test for your full license during all this time, we have silly rules like: only one passanger in your car other than immediate family, when you have your L, you HAVE to be with a 25+ year old who has their licence

tl;dr getting your licence in british columbia is queer, but accidents are less frequent i guess

I hope they make the driving test harder. There are too many ****ty drivers on the road these days. Stupid ass 16 year olds but also older people too.

Driving tests need to be harder
yeah, they make it so any half-wit can pass it and endanger all of our lives
