In Wyoming, you can drive as early as 14 if you live more than 2 miles from your school, doesn't have a school bus coming by, is driving alone or only with immediate relatives and only during daylight.

True. I still don't mind though. I'll probably drive a lot of long stretches (for instance: At the end of october I hope I can drive to Texel when we go on vacation)
I'm taking my exam on sept 19th (wednesday) early in the morning. I can't wait

What is the legal age to ride a horse in Wyoming? Or a cow for that matter...

14 is way too early IMO. I think 18 is fine, when people start growing up.

I'd like since 17 with parents and after 18 alone.
Remember that microcars (engine below 50 cc) are in Italy assimilated to mopeds and can be driven since 14. They cannot drive over 45kph (like mopeds) although almost all of them are illegally modified.

They could have more serious exams to determine if people can drive from age 14 or 15 upwards and place restrictions such as daytime only driving, no unrelated minors in the car etc.

I started to driving at 14, legally, in Spain…
…but it was a 50cc scooter. And it not was exactly a driving licence… it was a paper test. Crazy, isn't it?

Then, at 16, I get the A1 EU Driving License: It allowed me to drive 125cc motorbikes, in all type of roads like a car.

So, my first time in a Motorway was at the sweet 16 years. Really nice. Here.

Also, according to the spanish law, for get the A1 licence you should pass the B theorical test

And when I was 18 just needed pass the driving test (practical) for driving a car. A1 + B at 18, and 14 points instead of 8.

That's was easy and nice.


P.S.: When I got the driver's license was allowed to drive without being a "novato" (learner), so, I never used the "L" sign / sticker in my car. (only if you get a licence for more than 1 year.)

They changed the law also here, now you can get driving license if you are 17 but first three months you have to drive with somebody who has a driving license more then 10 years.

I also got the A1 driving license when I was 16 years old. I had to pass the usual theory test, but I also had to do a practice test. When I was 18 I had to re-do the entire procedure again for the B category.

At Germany you can get the car driving license when your are 17, but you have to drive with your parents until the 18th birthday who has the driving license more then 5 years, older then 30 years and not more of 3 driving ponits at Flensburg.
After the 18th birthday you can drive alone.

Not so strange, it's the same here.

So in Germany you start with 0 points and you get (negative) points with violation? How much points take your license away?
In Italy it's the countrary. Everybody starts with 20 positive points and lost points with violations. With 0 points you lost the license.

In the UK you get 3 points for minor offences. 12 points, and bye bye license for a while.

Here in Spain everyone started with 12 points (Beginners start with 8) and if you haven't offended any rules for 3 years, you can get more points, so now good drivers have 15 points, which is the most possible.

Yes we start with 0 Points. At 18 Points the Driving License is away.
The German Government want to change the point system and so the driving license can be lost at 8 Points.
For every fine over 40EUR you get a point or more.

A lot of Russians obtain a drivers license without a theory test OR a driving test.
