    So, Tuesday I was out driving with my driving instructor, practicing backing into parking spots and the like.

    And then he let me go through my very first ever, Tim Hortons drive-through. Aside from nearly losing the drivers side mirror on that cement post thing they have before you get to the pick-up window, I did pretty good.

    lol...it says a lot about a place when driver's ed includes how to do a timmies run lol

    i remember doing my drivers ed i had to go over the reversing falls bridge. anyone who goes through saint john on the highway must go through the toll booth. i hated it! i almost got sideswipped (at least i thought i almost did) and i almost dropped the coin! it was so awful! i take that route as little as possible now

    They took parallel parkin off the driving test in Martin County (my county back in Florida)...so I never learned how...I was happy at the time...doesn't help me much now living in Sussex, where most of the parking downtown is parallel [face_plain]

    You still have to know how to parallel park. Damn this province.

    That's not enough. In my opinion, you should also know how to change a tire before you can get your licence (have it as part of the test).

    I learned from my mother.

    One of the things on my "To do before I die" list is drive a very fast car on the autobahn.

    I don't like driving, but my mother is really pissing me off with this driving BS so I guess I'll get it soon.

    LOL the first time my mom got in a car with me, she says we almost hit my neighbor's hours, but really, we had at least 10 feet to go
    if there was an extra break in my car, we wouldn't have gone anywhere! she hated me driving

    my driver's ed company got shut down for sexually harassing the students

    I wound up on the sidewalk the first time I drove because I was in a clunky old mini van. I love my car. :p
