  • FOCUSING ON THE FLAWS OF FUNDAMENTALISM SINCE 2005

     

    "Childbearing. Child rearing. Gender equality. Religion. Race. Regionalism. A woman's right to her body. Money/welfare. My god, everything my mama and Miss Manners ever said NOT to talk about among strangers!!"

    Free Jinger is a free speech zone.  We do not allow hate speech and we limit direct discussion of children. If you don't like what someone is saying, challenge them. Logic and reason are prized here, as well as thoughtful debate. Be prepared to don your asbestos underoos, though.

    If you are not okay with these topics, just leave. They are the point of this board.

    Or, as one of our members said: "What is discussed in this forum is Supreme Court stuff--literally--...the venting might be ranting. No grammar police, no fully enforced punctuation rules, but please don't wade in if things religious and reproductive will harm your psyche, because this should be a safe place to marvel at the massive political and social movements about to overtake our nation. And recipes."

    You have been warned. Welcome!

      Hmm definitely better to get the manual license in that case.   When I got my license some 35 years ago there was no restriction.  But we never had a manual car so I never learned to drive one.  It has meant paying extra when hiring cars, and wasn’t convenient when I worked for a mechanic (I couldn’t shuffle cars, and if giving a lift to customers I had to take my car not theirs).   Also when going away with friends I couldn’t take a turn driving.  I don’t want to ever learn now though! Good luck!

      Nope, if I do it in an automatic, I'm limited to automatic cars. I would have to take another full exam and depending on the time between also another theoretical test and lessons. So it would be not ideal at all. I get my license (doesn't matter which one) with a two year probation time. During those two years I'm not allowed to drink any alcohol, other than that there is no limit. After those two years I can drink alcohol until I hit the limit, but I don't care about that, because for me it is clear that I won't drink and drive even if it is legal.  There are no speed restrictions for new drivers with cars, only motorbikes have a build in reduction until you hit a certain age. And I can carry up to 8 passengers right away.

      Here, if you do your test in an automatic car you can only drive an automatic for the first year (when you are a Provisional 1 driver).  After that you’re a P2 driver (for another 2 years) and you can drive slightly faster, carry over 1 passenger after 11pm, and drive both manual and automatic.  If you do the test in an automatic is it the same, just a limited time restriction?
