    ^Thats because we just got our license, and partly because we are at a certain age. However, my point was that I personally think that a person should get their permit EARLIER and FOR LONGER, that way they have more experience when the get on the road.

    15 - Get permit
    16 - Get license

    I have no idea where the conversation is right now (As I've only read the first few posts and this page) - so I'm gonna jump in on the whole driving thing...

    I would be scared at the thought of a 15 year old behind the wheel of a car on a public road...
    The best system is:
    At 17 you can apply for a provisional licence - and then get your full licence when you can pass all the various tests.

    Personally I'd like to see it so that you can't drive alone until you are 18 - but if I was 17 my opinion on that would probably be different on that.

    There is a reason younger drivers pay a premium on their car insurance.

    I don't understand why sex doesn't get the same approach as cars. (age-wise, not doing it with your parents-wise. )

    I haven't done anything in my 3 years of driving yet.

    I honestly don't see the logic in this. Of course maturity place a role in just about everything, but experience overrules maturity. Kids are learning tons of things at a young age, why not driving?

    Kids are always going to drive crazy when they get their license, thats inevitable. However, I consider myself to be quite mature, yet I never got out of that 'just got my license' stage until I realized that I'm not invincible behind the wheel. It took a near-accident (caused by experience, not maturity) for me to realize how important driving is.

    When you are behind the wheel of a car moving at 60mph you are not just responsible for yourself - you are responsible for any passengers in that car, as well as any other drivers/passengers/pedestrians in the vicinity of your vehicle.

    It may well be the case that there are a number of 15 year olds out there who are mature enough to handle the challenges/responsibility of driving - but the majority of 15 year olds I believe are not.

    Maturity and experience go hand in hand. One thing is that when you are older your hormones aren't making you behave as erratically as when you are a 15 year old. And having responsibilities in your life makes your overall behaviour different.

    The idea of allowing 15 year old to drive is just nuts. And as for maturity levels - although I can admit some 15yo's might be able to handle driving - there is no standard test that says if you are a mature/immature person. Therefore you either need to let all 15 year olds drive or none. Why take the risk?

    Wow, I'm going to steal that and insert "sex". Good points.

    I don't care what the age gets changed to now that I'm legal.
