How old were you when you got your license?

I know it's different for everyone, but I'm just curious...I didn't get mine until I was 21 and married already as I didn't want the responsibility of possibly injuring someone else due to inability to handle a half ton of metal. My oldest son is 22 and he's had absolutely zero interest in driving and he's in the military. Is that odd? Most people I talk to say they got theirs as soon as 16 or 17.

  • I got my learners permit at 16 and learned how to drive, but I never even went for the test for my open license. I thought I might when my eldest son got his, but still haven't . I'm 45. I'd rather ride a pushbike. :D

  • 16, It could be your son does not need a license. This could be because he lives in an area where he does not need a license to get where he wants to go. Perhaps his friends have transportation. Cars, insurance, upkeep and GAS are terribly expensive.
