@MissCalifornia:  Just wanted to wish you good luck!  I remember never practicing for parallel parking until the morning of my test.  My ex’s father took the liberty to practice with me.  I hated it and never wanted to do it again.  I was shocked I passed the first time.  Thankfully I haven’t been in a situation to have to parallel park.  I will walk blocks before I do so.  Hahaha.

I haaaated driving and barely ever wanted to practice–I spent like all of high school mooching rides off people! But I got my license when I was 18, the summer after hs graduation– I was moving to NYC for college and knew it was then or never! I have only driven like a handful of times since, mostly during the summers when I was staying with my parents, but I still hate it! dh and I even co-owned a car togehter for a year and a half, and I drove it once, lol

good luck with the test! you can do it 🙂

@finnaroo:  I had no problems selling my car to help buy FI’s work van.  I dislike driving a lot.

I’m twenty-two and I don’t have my license yet either. I took driver- ed in high school and everything, (and passed) but for some reason I just never bothered getting it. I was actually down at the DMV just last week though, and now I’ve got my drivers permit renewed so I can start practising driving again (legally.) I hope to have my license by my birthday … which is in late June! 

Good luck on your test, you’ll do great!!

I didn’t mine until I was 24! 🙂 Darling Husband and I started dating when I was 18, and I just didn’t really need it.  The longer I waited, the more scared I got.  I practiced with him and passed on my first try!

My best advice is to try your hardest to relax.  I made a few silly mistakes starting out during the test, but the officer was really nice and told me I was doing great and not to stress. 

You’ll do fantastic! Best of luck!

To make you all feel better Wink I’m almost 30 and I still haven’t gotten my license, and I don’t have the excuse of living in a big city like most of you do! It’s so embarassing, but I have to get it this summer, I’ve renewed my permit 3 times- so sad, haha.

Good luck to you!

You’ll do great! I was late to the party too! I got mine a couple days shy of my 20th birthday.

When I was 15 my mom had me drive her car on a country road and she told me pull over the left a car go by and I got the car high centered in a ditch, so after that I was scared to drive and I didn’t again until I was 19 and I think I drove for the first time and then got my license in like a 4 month span, it happend pretty quick.  And I failed the first time because I hit a curb when I parked. Lame.

Good luck!!

I’m going to be doing a road test for California this summer. I’m as nervous as all get out and I’ve been driving for years. I threw up before my first driving test when I was a teenager. I totally understand your nerves!
