When did you get your license? I hate to admit this. I was 21. But, in my defense, with Jay being in the service, I couldn't get it in England and it was too hard to get it out of state.
When did you get your first car? January 2nd, 2003.

Can you drive stick? No

Do you prefer backroads or the highway? Depends...on weather, if I know where I'm at, time of day, etc...

Do you get lost easily? Omg, YES!!! I am HORRIBLE. Before I had a GPS, I'd CONSTANTLY be calling someone to have them talk me out of being lost. LOL

When did you get your license? The first day I legally could. Got my permid on my 16th birthday, my test was 120 days later, and picked up my license the next day.

When did you get your first car? The day I got my permit. My father was buying a new car for himself and gave me the old one, 95 chevy lumina.

Can you drive stick? yep, I prefer it. I feel so much more in control and feel my I'm less distracted when driving stick

Do you prefer backroads or the highway? highway. Even during rush hour, I prefer it to back roads.

Do you get lost easily? Oh yes! I refuse to drive in downtown New Haven (the Yale area..) as I get lost EVERY SINGLE TIME..

When did you get your first car? April of last year was the first car I bought. It was the first time I wasn't "borrowing" my parents.

Can you drive stick? no

Do you prefer backroads or the highway? backroads

Do you get lost easily? no, except when I'm pregnant

Do you prefer backroads or the highway? Well i like backroads, but if the only way to get some where is the highway then I'll take that.

Do you get lost easily? No, because i have my trusty gps LOL! without it i'd be lost, i can't read a map
