Driving for 20 years
|Ferrari GTO -- my 16-year old self's dream car|
As of this November, I've been driving for 20 years!
I got my driver's license back in the good old days when there was no such thing as "graduated licensing".
On my 16th birthday, I wrote a short multiple choice test to receive my learner's license, and enrolled in the Young Driver's education course -- something I would recommend for any young driver.
Nearly a month later, I took the on-road driving test -- in a manual car, no less -- and was licensed to drive!
By now, I've probably driven in about 10-15 different countries around the world, on the left and right side.
Many, many thousands of kilometers later, driving is practically a natural instinct, and still a great way to get around.
Of course, with Google's self-driving car, taking the wheel may someday become an old-fashioned novelty.
