Can you drive?

United Kingdom (^_^) 
Hello HLTV I was wondering whether you can drive or not and what age did you get your license? I'm 18 and haven't even started lessons yet so I want to see if I'm some sort of bum

Well to be fair I actually live in Bosnia, little village next to Orašje which borders Županja. That might be the main reason.

yeah in Rijeka this is the standard price, also what car did you drive? All my hours were in VW Golf 7 and Golf 8

In Norway everything is expensive as far as I know, so I'm not surprised. I paid 54900 EUR for an ATPL Integrated (205 flying hours + 750 hours of ATPL theory) in Greece, although there are much cheaper schools in Greece itself. I remember a few schools in Sweden offering more or less the same prices. Much cheaper options are available in Romania/Poland/Czech Republic.

My friend Oluf is studying to be a pilot, and the school he was looking at located in sandefjord was i think 1 million NOK, which is like almost double of what you paid. IDK his source or anything just trust him i guess xD

you can earn a "permit" by taking a very basic driving test that makes sure you know extremely basic signs and rules. This allows you to drive with parents in the car. After a year, you must take a harder driving course that covers everything, must have 40 hours of driving and some more in certain weather conditions, and then take a test to get your license.

Depends on the state. Earliest you can drive with parents is 14 in South Dakota, most places are around 15 1/2 to 16 years old though

I'm in my mid twenties and I never bothered with driver licence, public transport is just too good and I can get with my bike basically anywhere I want in my city. I have a proper gravel bike ( canyon grail 7 ) I also care about climate, people with cars should really think about harm they're doing.

Hello and yes, i can drive. I got my driving license at 18 (i'm 19 now). Just because you are 18 now and you are not able to drive a car it doesn't mean that you are a bum & also you should really consider if you think it is a necessity for your own self or not. (Btw you should not be pressured to get your driving license just because your other friends got theirs, i know a lot of people with a driving license that forgot how to drive properly just because they got their own license because "other people got it too" type of thing.. & they didn't really need a car to do their daily activities either)

Yeah, 18 It's not hard and not a big deal if you live in a bigger city (or live in the US where cities are centered around you owning a car lmao) I live in a smaller city so I had to learn how to drive since everything important was in a city 15 km away. If I lived in Prague for example I wouldn't even bother with it, maybe just for the sake of learning it, but having a car in a big city is a hassle honestly
