Welcome aboard kiddo! Your best driving days are yet ahead of you.

Just some simple advice I give to my brother who is just as old as you are. Go for precision and focus on knowing/understanding your car rather than outright speed. Dont try to drive fast right away. Once you get precise in your driving, the speed will come automatically.

Drive really really safe and sure. Trust me, chicks dig that.

Hi

Welcome to Team - BHP

I would advise you to wait until you get a licence - what happens if you have an accident ? The insurance will not pay out and god help you in dealing with the police and the victim, never mind the guilt. It is not worth it !

I spent many day trying to figure out the same thing when i was 16 !! lol

But i do remember reading on some official forms that for a car you have to be 18 before getting ur learners (legally).... thats what i seem to remember.

I recommend those thoughts - very highly. Sorry if I sound patronizing.

i guess its not a wrong thing to get a license at 16 if u drive safely. i got my license at 16 and havent had a single accident that has got me into trouble. So i guess its ok. but just drive safely and belt up.

And Turbocharged , welcome to TeamBHP and pls keep some amt of trubo lag while driving.
