Do you advise getting a learner's permit when 15?
Question: I don't know why I got it now, but it made me think. I got a paper in our report-card packet that said "ATTENTION: PARENTS OF STUDENTS AGES 14 AND OLDER" I'm in 8th grade. It had stuff to do with learner's permits and stuff. Just the other day, my mom was saying how I couldn't get my licence until I was like...I don't even know. But it was older than 18. I mentioned the learner's permit to her, and she said I COULD get it when I'm 15. Do you think it's a good idea? I'm pretty sure all she'd let me do is drive around the small neighborhood we live in, haha(: BQ: What do have to do to get it? BQ2: When did you get it? Or when do you plan on it?

Sure. With a permit, a guardian has to be in the car with you as you drive, btw. BQ: I'm from NY, but I would guess it generally works like this in the states: Go to the DMV. Stand on the appropriate lines. You'll get a number. Wait around a bit. Be called for your photo. Then take the leaner's permit test, which is about 20 multiple choice questions. Easy test. Practice questions might be online for your state. Wait around after taking the test. You'll find out if you passed that day. If you do, they'll give you a temporary permit until they mail you the official one with your picture. In my state, I think it costs like $70 for a permit for minors. BQ: I got mine in December 2011. I'm in no rush to get my driver's license yet. For the time being, I've just been practicing with my dad
You have to take drivers ed if you are under 18...AAA offers it...but there are online courses you can do too, my daughter did hers through a teacher at her highschool....ask your friends where they did theres...both of your parents have to sign saying it's ok...then you take the written test...make an appointment with the dmv for that...go to the dmv website they have lots of resources for training and everything you need to do.
If your laws are anything like where I live in Canada, you will have to be 16 atleast to get a learners permit. The learners permit means your mom (or another legal driver) must always be in the car with you! Even if you are only driving around your small neighbourhood. BQ: to get your learners permit (where I live anyways) you have to pass a written test. It asks you multiple choice questions about general rules of the road, the meaning of road signs, and some scenarios such as the best action to take in a given situation. Its expensive to take the test, but you can take it as many times as you want until you pass and get your permit. Look for "learners permit driving practice written test" online or something. A lot of the questions on my test were the EXACT same as online tests. BQ2: I got mine a few months after I turned 16.
This is from the Florida DMV and it's what I'd go by: Learner's License: Teens must be at least 15 years old to apply for a Learner’s License. They must have completed a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Course, pass a written test, vision test, hearing test and a signed Parental Consent Form . With a Learner's License, your teen can only drive during daylight hours during the first three months and until 10 p.m. thereafter, ALWAYS with a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old and occupies the front passenger seat. Intermediate License To earn an Intermediate License, teens must be at least 16 years old AND have held a Learner’s License for at least one year without any traffic convictions. Once teens obtain an Intermediate License their driving privileges are based on their age. 16 years old Driving allowed between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. All other times must be accompanied by a licensed driver at least 21 years old occupying the closest seat to the right of the driver, or be traveling to or from work. 17 years old Driving allowed between 5 a.m. and 1 a.m. All other times must be accompanied by a licensed driver at least 21 years old occupying the closest seat to the right of the driver, or be traveling to or from work. Full Privilege License When teens turn 18, restrictions are removed from their license. Then they have a full privilege license.
It depends on your state's laws for ages and getting learners permits and/or your license. If you feel like you're ready to take your permit test, then take it! If you don't, then just wait until the moment when you think that you're completely ready. BQ: You have to take a test on a computer that asks questions about all sorts of driving material. Usually before you take your permit, you're supposed to study from a 50 page book that has all sorts of driving material listed in that's on the permit test. There is twenty questions total and you can only get a maximum of 3 wrong in order to pass your permit test. BQ1: I got mine when I was 16. I studied the permit booklet for about a week, went in and took the test. However, I got one wrong. But, I still passed!
When I took my drivers education class (2 years ago), they were offered at my high school during the summer for like $250. There is the class portion where you learn from the little booklet, watch videos. After that they'll give you the final class test. If you pass that you will be able to be able to drive with the instructor (This is where if you have time, you can have a parent teach you to drive). After driving with an instructor, they'll tell you when it's time to get your learner's permit. Then you'll go to the DMV and take vison test (I wore contacts). After that comes the driving test (Maintaining speed limit, signaling, backing up in a straight line, parallel line etc.) If you pass you'll get a temporary learner's permit (Hard card will arrive a couple weeks in mail). I believe you can get your real driver's licence 6 months after that. If your school doesn't offer driver's ed, I would go to your local DMV. Oh yeah, 15 is when you can start classes. You have to be at least 16 to take the driving test.
