    Learned on a 5 Speed 2002 Taco! Took my road test in my CG! 5 speed! Haha!

    In driver's ed, we had a '99ish Camry and a '00ish Hyundai Accent.

    Instructor's car was.. umm.. A Chevy sedan, I think, from late 80's or early '90's, I think lol. Went to Dr Ed school in '95 at 16 yrs old.

    Drove parents' '94 Accord wagon for a month, (or father's company car '94 Legend from time to time in secret; Who doesn't, when you have a chance to joyride a '15 RLX now, if you are 16 yrs old!?)


    1st car was a '91 Accord given in '95, and modded it for the first time 'till '99. Wish I had a pic or two tho.. Was such a badass, bad enough that some rice could've leaked out of the exhausts outlet. :lawl:

    The car I was taught to drive in was an 05 dodge magnum hemi. I live in a rainy state and drove a RWD 400hp wagon. This car is a rolling blind spot too. It's also lowered like an inch and a half I think so that's what taught me speed bump and driveway entries.

    I saw a marked (student stickers) Civic Hybrid car yesterday. Much better than the crap I got.

    I think we should go 'euro' style here. 14-15=moped, 16-17=250cc motorcycle, 18+=cars

    People learn the physics, or eliminate themselves.

    I started at 12ish on a Honda Trail 70, so far I have caused no accidents, but I have been involved in others, because of some dumbass!

    This is great. Haha xci! It is a good tactic though! I have this thing that everyone should learn stick because I feel like it puts you more in tune with not only your surroundings, but your car.

    I think states are different. I took my permit test at 15 and had a year to learn to physically drive a car and drive with a licensed driver aka my mom. Once I turned 16 and felt I had driving down, we took our car down to the DMV and I took my test in MY car with a state trooper riding shotgun. Anywho, 1995 Plymouth Voyager! Lol

    I feel I should add this, I started on a 1972 CT70-K0, that's an early Trail, with a 4-speed and a clutch. The later ones came with a 3-speed and an auto-clutch.

    I put ~2000 miles on that the first summer I had it, without leaving my yard. That was awesome, the oldest Honda I have ever owned. I'm sad that I sold it :.(
