Too bad we don't have any sedans.

In fact, first time I'll get to drive a sedan will be driver's ed.

I never took driver's ed. My parents said it's really not necessary (and expensive), one of my sisters took it and my other sister is a better driver lol. My parent's also think it's silly to drive for an hour and then sit in the back while another student drives for an hour.

I have to take it because it saves money on insurance and you need it if you are under 18.

I don't think I need it (in 4 months of driving I've proved that I'm better than my sister.) but I've gotta take it.

I wanna take a class where you actually learn to drive, like how to control a car at the extremes, driving a stick, stopping without ABS, recovering from fishtails, etc.

Congrats on the license...

but i gotta disagree with the pointless part about drivers ed. You save a TON of money on insurance If I remember correctly it was like 200-300 bucks for drivers ed but it saved like 200 a year on insurance but then again this was 12 years ago so it may be different now...
