Life would be extremely boring without a license and a car especially where I live! I own two vehicles.

As an example, here in San Antonio you could "get by" without a car but trips to and from work would be a 2hr adventure on the bus. There is no subway or light rail system.
You may want to do a Google Earth of NYC and try to find a parking spot.

Most of the people I know got their drivers license when they were 16 years old. I started driving when I was 14. worked on a car lot and had to drive the cars. LOL

I have a drivers license and one of those flying licenses as well. LOL

The most cars I have owned at one time was 6. Well two of the 6 were trucks and that was when I was young and single. At the time I had a 71 Olds Cutless, 65 VW Beetle, A very fast 1973 Ford Pinto that had a 427 Cobra Jet Powering it, a 1977 Ford Thunderbird that my dad had given me, 1980 Chevy LUV pickup truck, think mini truck craze here with the lowered body stance, custom wheels, nice paint, and lastly a 1979 Ford F150 that was given to me for a job that I had done.

Other toys that I had was a 1977 Mooney 201 Airplane, a 24 foot Oday sailboat, a Yamaha TT500 Dirt bike, a Honda 125, and a BMW R75 that I had inherited.

Everyone I know growing up was at the DMV office on their 16th birthday.

I grew up around the car business and was moving cars around the lot at age 12...

I mastered parking before I ever drove about 5 mph!

Today... I own over 50 vehicles... half insured and the other half future projects.
