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.
Same as me But as for Polish law you should pass full exam (theoretical+pracital), if your last (for whatever category) was more than half year ago.

when doing driving licence lessons, they never take you to the 3+lane motorway (well at least in slovenia they cant), they should.

In Romania it's illegal to drive on a motorway if you don't have a driver's license (ex: you can't do the driving school on a motorway).

And yes, in Romania you can also get a license if you have enough money...

You're not allowed on motorways on a provisional license in the UK. And in France the speedlimit is 110 on motorways if you passed your driving test less then two years ago.

In Romania, if you have your license for less than a year, the speed limit is -10 km/h on rural roads and -20 km/h on motorways.

I didn't know the percentage was so low.

I was just playing with Google Maps for Alicante: they've got street names in Catalan (or Valencian) and landmarks (a museum, a castle...) and the city itself labeled in Castilian. Then there's a town just to the north marked as Sant Joan d'Alacant.

Does that reflect how things really are there, or is Google Maps just being goofy (when they first started a few years ago, they had everything in Brussels labeled in Dutch only.)? What are the rules? Not taking sides, just curious how this sort of thing works.

Since you entered thousands of notes did you ever find something counterfeit or with printing errors?
I am a tracker too, and recognized a 20€ fake bill my newsdealer gave me as change. It was an Italian note, so J in the little code and S in the long code, but the numbers were absolutely random. Fortunately I knew the newsdealer well and when I showed him the note he gave me a good one - cursing because it was the third bad note he received in a short time.

The thing is that Alicante is controlling by the Valencia Goberment (Generalitat Valenciana, Comunidad Valenciana), and Valencian politician are a Language Nazis who doesn't know where are Alicante. It's a sad but true thing: they control a region and they dosen't care about that region (Alicante).

They still believe since late 70's that in Alicante province the people speak Valencian but the true fact is that nobody (or a minory <13%) speaks Valencian in Alicante province: in the coast, East, Alicante-Elche, and Bajo Segura (Vega Baja).

Also, Valencians believe that Valencian is not Catalan, when it's the same language . Stupid Grammar Nazi.

P.S.: People say San Juan Pueblo, not San't Joan d' Alacant or San Juan de Alicante.

During my driving license lessons and exams I never saw a motorway. And yet I drive on 3+3 or 4+4 motorways without any problems.

You only really learn how to drive after you get the license. Experience is what counts.

That's perfectly true. I remember how I was driving the first days after I got my license...

Yeah me too. Driving lessons in the Netherlands are in diesel cars, and using the clutch in a gasoline-powered car is quite different. I remember I stalled quite a few times driving in my parents gasoline car in the beginning. I also had an accident in southern France six years ago that could be attributed to having a lack of experience.

Driving lessons are usually done in diesel cars because the engine stalls a lot harder than in gasoline cars. I did my driving lessons in a gasoline car, but my girlfriend now does it in a diesel Golf IV.

I remember that after I got my license I was driving quite slow and I was very tense while driving, but now, after 50k+ kms in 13 countries on all types of roads and weather conditions I can drive relaxed.
