I cant remember exactly how old I was. 11 or 12 I think. Dad hated driving so he started having me drive him around whenever it was possible. I remember one time we were all at the cabin on Bear Creek(Pickwick). One of my older sisters was there. She said "You wanna go do some drivin", of course I said YEAH!! and away we went. I was driving her VW Bug at the Mill Creek boatdock and campground. It was dark, no one was camping so I was driving all over the campground dodging trees, electrical and water connections. We were having a blast. We see headlights coming towards us so I stop and the owner of the camp ground pulls up and ask if we needed help. My sister said "no sir, I'm teaching my little brother how to drive". He said "well I thought yall were having a hard time making a decision as to where to camp LOL". He said just be careful and dont runover anything.
I taught both my kids how to drive when I thought they were ready. My son did really well. My daughter took a little longer.

Didnt want to hijack another post, but I am a driver education teacher in Northern Alabama. It amazes me at the number of kids that have never driven until they are in the car with me.

I drove on my dads lap when I was young, on our farm, lawnmowers, and go carts. Therefore when I turned 16 it was already second nature to me.

How did you fellas learn to drive?


Same way. I also got my learners' permit about 6 months before the next drivers' ed class came through the school. I got into an argument with the instructor about how to adjust the rear-view mirrors.

"Sorry pal, this is the way I do it, and I can see better than the way you're telling me." I had to prove it to him.

I learned driving a battery operated Jeep. Started somewhere around the age of 2. No telling how many times I ran over the big oak tree in the front yard.

I was driving myself around within 5 or 6 miles of the house by age 14. Actually got pulled over when I was 15 by a national park ranger. That was a terrible experience!

I learned to drive when I was ten or so. I worked for the farmer down the road picking up bails. I was the youngest (and shortest) so when the trailer got a few rows stacked on I couldn't reach to get the bails up there. They put me in the truck and said figure it out. Oh man did I get yelled at for a while. But learned how to drive a stick. I never drove with my parents in the car or truck till I was probably 17. My older brother would let me drive his truck.
