I'm 23 and still haven't,in fact neither of my parents or siblings ever learnt to drive either so If I did I'd be the first in the family.

I was terrified of driving all that time. Then I decided I needed to if I was going to ever leave this place and see the world. Then I discovered there is a pattern to all the perceived madness.

My first road trip was within six months of getting my license, and was the first time I ever drove on the Interstate. Florida to Montana in five days. In January. With a snowstorm at one point. (My ex-husband slept the whole time, minus the funny incident of him slipping on ice in Missouri and the dog - 13-pound Maltese-Poodle - dragged him across the ice by the leash.)

Learned or legal? I learned at about 11 or 12. Legal at 17.

15 1/2 years was the age at which you were allowed to drive with a parent to learn. However I grew up on a farm so by 14 I was driving the diesel in the fields.

I took the classes in school when I was 16, but didn't try for my license. I was living at home where we didn't have a car.

I finally got it when I was 26 after my first daughter was born.

Twelve years old---I would drive on the mountain roads up state to practice. Sometimes in one of our local parks on the dirt roads, but I learned to drive on the street when I was 18.

15 when I could get my learner's permit. Wasn't until about 18 when I was living in a more metropolitan area and really comfortable with driving interstates/heavy traffic.

I was nineteen or twenty, I forget--I got my license two days before my permit would've expired.

I don't drive, but at least I have the photo ID.

I was 12 when I first drove a car, it was in the mountains on a dirt road. Dad felt it was a good idea to start my training early. It was a stick shift and he taught me all about up and down shifting. After I got the hang of that he taught me how to slide the rear end sideways and how to control a spin. Even better was the first snow fall, we went to a big parking lot and I spun doughnuts and drifted for hours.

Looking back that was some of the best driving education anyone could get. When I started driving on the streets I knew what to expect when driving in snowy conditions. I even taught my wife how to drive the same way and I will teach my kids much the same way. They already know a lot about controlling a vehicle from riding the quads.

Got my license when I was 16.
