I think I really learned how to drive after my accident. That happened in 2008. I got my license in 1997.

I've never driven on snow (I'd drive very slowly) and I've had driver's license for 12 years.

Brown for natural landmarks.

I drove on snow. First time in Slovakia, then in Romania and Austria. You have to be very gentle with the car, but it's ok, especially if you drive a 4x4

I drove on snow even during driving lessons (it was pretty heavy winter of '96 although). Driving on snow is normal thing for me especially when I go into mountains (I don't have 4x4).

Mutxamiel . It's Muchamiel (Spanish) or Mutxamel (Valencian Catalan), but not Mutxamiel.

I have "painted" some signs using the old "Autopista" font.

p.s. The school he chose is a private one, well known in the country for being more a business to make money than a school (their diplomas are useless), they closed it though after the Bossi scandal

I really recommend this movie for all road enthusiasts. I am just watching it on BBC and am amazed. Sometimes just cannot believe.

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

In Italy before getting the license you cannot drive on autostrade and superstrade. For three years after the license the limit is 100 on autostrade and 90 on superstrade. However respecting normal limits (130 and 110) is enough for beginning drivers to avoid troubles because speed traps don't recognize the driver and don't fine those below the normal limit.
On other roads the speed limits are the same for everybody.

Did you recognized it because EBT didn't accept the code you entered? Did it looked real at sight and touch?

Me too, and where I live it usually snow once or twice every winter (last winter none)! I never drove on the snow in other istances.

I recognized it before entering the code into EBT, then EBT confirmed my suspicions. The note didn't have holograms either, but this is not something you look for all the times you are given a banknote.

Damn, I never looked at the banknotes I received.
I think I wouldn't see if it's a fake...

Btw, I was in Italy for the first time in my life, about 2 hours.
I spent 1h30min in San Candido (Innichen), a really nice place.
I liked the Latin atmosphere .

I got my driving license in 1995. Since then I drove approx. 170,000 kilometers. I don't know exactly because we often do long journeys where we change the driver so that after arriving home I know the car ran 3,650 km in three days, but don't know how many of that was driven by me.

I have no problem on any road surface and weather conditions but in heavy fog or rainfall in the night, when I can't see anything of the road, I'm usually a bit frightened. There is no such practice when you can easily drive in such a heavy rain or fog where you can't see more than 10 meters of the road in front if you.
