    Yeah same, I can control a car but learning how to do it properly/legally will be good.
    Yeah, I can basically drive a car, and I just LOVE driving, even if it is on a private learners track, or on my driveway:P

    You should just go for it , after a year you will probably not even want a car. At 17 you will be after your first 125cc. At the end of the day if you crash it, your fault and your responsibility. All a part of growing up.

    Bikes are cheaper and way more fun then cars. Can be a bit less safe but only if you ride like a c*ck with no proper saftey gear.

    Same here, thing is the suitable land around here is limited so I can hit 25 mph tops, in 3rd gear for about 5 seconds then back to 2nd. Do you know of any private learners tracks? I couldn't find any. I can practice turns in the road in the driveway, let's just say I need all the practice I can get!

    There's a place called 'young driver' which is sponsored by seat. They have a couple of locations throughout the UK - http://www.youngdriver.eu/

    Can I just say, the seat Ibiza I drove there last year was a great car, so easy to drive!

    The piaggio ape 50!

    It is only 50cc so 16 year olds can drive it having sat their CBT!

    I am almost 16 and am desperate to drive, but don't want to drive a scooter.

    Haha, I'd take anything to get around but would prefer not to use a scooter as I'm too much of a 'speed freak', and I'd probably injure myself XD
