This summer has been crazy. During June, I had in-class Driver's Ed every weekend. I got my Learner's Permit and I'm now working on doing drive times. I also had summer school. I had to take English online because I couldn't fit it into my schedule next school year. Between all that, I'm still volunteering at the vet clinic. This is how I have felt most of the time: :GAAH:. Like I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Today, I finished my summer school!!!! 2 semesters in 7 weeks!! :D Tomorrow, I have to go to Ben Davis HS to take my final exams, but after that I'm done!!! My parents are rewarding me by taking me out to dinner and getting my ears pierced! (Yes, I'm 15 and don't have my ears pierced.) My dad is also going to take me fishing Friday. It's so nice to finally just sit back and relax and enjoy my summer....Ahhhh

I know how you feel!! Lol I had does kidding like crazy, had school with 8 projects every 2 weeks and had FCAT (like final exams but we also had them) & I had drivers Ed with alg. 2 online.
Feels great to be done!!
Did you have to take drivers Ed to get your permit? Because down here in FL we get our permit on our own then do drivers Ed and take the test with out instructor. (And get your license if you pass).
Either way, CONGRATS!!:)

Emileanne, no you don't have to take driver's ed in Indiana. I took it because my parents made me. You have to be 15 by the time class starts and thne you have to take proof that you are in class to the BMV, take a test, and you get your permit. After you finish the class, you take your road test. Then you can get your license at 16 1/2 vs. 16 and 3/4 if you didn't take driver's ed. I've already driven on some major Interstates, I-70 and I465. My dad let me drive our truck today up to take my finals. it's really easy once you get the hang of it. The only thing I haven't done is parallel parked. That scares me!! Thank you everyone! I passed both of my finals! I got an A in first semester and a B+ in second semester! :D

I actually found parallel parking (without other cars around us lol) very easy.
It was scary though! Don't think I'd ever use it, even if I had to. :)

I found that I drive MUCH better with my dads f259 rather than the stupid Malibu or 1990 old Chevy cavilere..... (Cars, I hate em) lol. So I'm not surprised you did good with the truck:)

Good luck with parallel parking!! 1 months exactly til my 16th birthday and boy oh boy, I dont wanna start driving! Lol:)

I could probably parallel park if it's a space that I could just pull into, but if you gotta do the backing and everything, that's what scares me. Im horrible at backing out of places. lol I like driving my dad's 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora. But it doesn't have AC and overheats easily, so I normally drive the truck.

See if I try & drive a car, I get lightheaded and start to see stars (means I'm getting a migraine) probably from stress. I hate being low. I feel like someone is going to crush me.

I'm fine with backing out of somewhere like a drive way but honestly, backing INTO a driveway, it's gunna take me a few tries.
I guess I'm a weird driver lol. :) I also am much better at straight parking lot parking when cars are next to the space rather than a empty Parkin lot. :)


For parallel Parkin, all you have to do is line your back tires with the front line. Stop completely. Then turn your wheel all the way to the right and reverse.
You should be in it!:) lol

See, I'm weird because I can park in a straight parking space better than an angled one. When I first started driving, I was so scared and tense. My hands and arms would get tired from being stiff. But now it's so easy! Backing is getting a lot easier, it's just taking some practice.

I feel like you guys have it so easy, regarding getting a drivers license :(
We can get a learners license at 16, where you have to do a quiz on a computer at the RTA.
Then you have to do 120 hours of driving. !!!!
And I think 20 of those hours have to be at night time.
After you've had your learners for a year and all your hours, you can get your "Ps" which lets you drive alone but with restrictions (only 90km/h, curfews etc)
I'm 18 in three weeks and still don't have my Ps because I don't have time to do the hours :(

Correct me if I'm wrong but I wish I learnt to drive over there :p

Yeah. You're right.

If my family stayed in Canada I would have to get learners at 15.5 then you get a second learners at 16 then your license at 16.5 or 17?
That SUCKS! IMO. Lol

But were semi illegally here. (Mom was born in the states but nana & papa weren't)

Lol!

In the state below mine, I am fairly sure you have to wait until you're 17 before you can even get your learner license!
No wonder we have people 19-20 years old who still can't drive *rolls eyes*

Yeah. Some people are weird!

My brother waited until he was 17 to get his & we drove his first truck home from my dads store, he said to me "why did I wait so long?!"
I hate driving but I like the feeling of being able to go somewhere without asking my mom cause she is a realtor and is REAL busy....
