I think a good number of us have either gone through it, are about to, or are currently going through it, as I am. I was just wondering how it worked for people in different parts of the world (and other cliches like that.) For us, in Maryland, we can get our Learner's Permits when we're 15 and 9 months. Driver's Education includes ten classroom sessions, with a final test that you need an 80 (or maybe 70) percent or better to pass. I passed the test, but missed three classes (D so I need to make them up in March. During, or after as in my case, the classroom sessions, you have three in-car sessions with an instructor. They last two hours each, and today was my first. Now, I don't find driving difficult, but it's none too thrilling. And, honestly, I think it's kind of tiring xD. I always finish with a stiff back and cramped thigh. Along with the six hours from in-car instructor led sessions, we need 60 hours of driving with a mentor before we can take the exam for our license, which a Marylander can get when they're 16 and 6 months old. What about you guys? Also: If anyone has any exciting stories (Drove on a collapsing bridge! Out-drove a lava flow! Or more average stuff) share them!
