    8 days until my birthday and I can legally do what I was doing when I was 15 (drink, that is, not appear in porn ) :sexface:
    Haha, I remember when I was nearly 18. I was like 'Yaaaaaay, I can buy drink'. Been 18 since April, still not bought anything! :lol:

    Good suggestion, but not everyone has one

    Plus, it's £50 to get a provisional :eek:

    I am. It's probable that If I were to open my results at school and realise I hadn't got in my firm, I'd cry. Better to do it at home...
    Hahaha good point

    Not valid any more. It ran out like two months after I went to Madrid in 2010 and couldn't be bothered to renew it, it's like £70 or something ridiculous like that. I'll renew it if I ever want to go abroad again which I know I will, just can't afford it right now

    I spent the £50 for the provisional not to drive but to use as ID. Money well invested. :party2:

    As irritating as this is... just think, your insurance costs will be dropping just for holding the licence.

    I know this isn't much consolation when you have to look at your full licence every time you get money out to get on the bus but it's better than nothing
