You can, you can tip off a cop, maybe on a grandparent or another elderly family member that you think shouldn't drive anymore, the cop will pull them over, say they need to retake their test or w/e, and your free from blame by said elderly family member. At least that's how you can go about here, the cops don't mind looking like the bad guy for you in that situation, as long as it keeps people safe.
User avatar #105 to #104 - fyaq (10/18/2013) [-]
it should just be a law. every 5 years, show up and schedule a time, take the test, if you skip you lose your license until you take it.
If you fail, you take a class again. Then can try and retake it.

once every 5 year is bit too much. I'm thinking more like 10-15 years
User avatar #143 to #140 - fyaq (10/18/2013) [-]
Cant be bothered to do something once every 5 years for a half hour?
Ya know like.... renew your license?
Or passport
or any legal documentation.

yea, old people can't be bothered

There will be enough people complaining to get it changed.

besides, passport is 5 years and not everyone even use a passport. Driver's license is something people use every day.

They're actually trying to push this idea trough the system in Norway.
Politicians have decided that all drivers must renew their license every five years.

I think we should reintroduce literacy tests before allowing citizens to register to vote.
#131 to #88 - pipeworks (10/18/2013) [-]
Literacy is not an indicator of intelligence, it is an indicator of access to education. Plenty of intelligent, thoughtful people cannot write simply because they were never taught.
User avatar #92 to #88 - mitchr (10/18/2013) [-]
Nah, it's illegal now. Precedent and everything.

Now, what we need to do is fix the school system so that people think for themselves.
User avatar #93 to #92 - InglushMayjur (10/18/2013) [-]
I think if we could prove that there was no racial element to it, then the precedent might not apply. I'm not quite sure, I'll look into it.
#120 to #93 - alibabaslots (10/18/2013) [-]
the only reason there was a racial element to it was when they first made it illegal to have literacy tests because of the fact that the recently freed black slaves had no chance of passing these tests because of how uneducated they were. I say take warnings off of everything and let the dumb die off imo

Everyone should drive stick shift.
User avatar #155 to #101 - ThunderChunderFrom (10/18/2013) [-]
That's a really bad idea. You would have people jerkily around everywhere, the sound of over/under revving engines, people stalling in the middle of intersections. I do believe there should be 2 separate license classes, one for manual shift and automatic, and one just for automatic.
#193 to #155 - flyingcube (10/18/2013) [-]
If you can't drive well enough to drive stick shift maybe you shouldn't drive and in addition to the stick shift driving I propose that everyone should have a basic knowledge on how your car and its components work. I mean if you aren't intelligent enough to learn the basics of how it works maybe again driving a car is a bad idea
User avatar #198 to #193 - ThunderChunderFrom (10/18/2013) [-]
"If you can't drive well enough to drive stick shift maybe you shouldn't drive"... That statement is stupid. I know people who can drive an automatic just fine, but when I comes to driving with a manual transmission, it's completely different. How well someone can actually drive safely has nothing to do with transmission type, and to think that just because someone may drive a stick shift that makes them a better, safer driver is an absurd concept.
#210 to #198 - flyingcube (10/18/2013) [-]
But...but...but...driving stick shift is fun
#176 to #155 - Nameloc (10/18/2013) [-]
Oh god. The hills with stoplights.
Everyone would triple their following/ stopping distance.

When I learned stick, my dad thought it was a great idea after the second session for me to drive home.
There were two damn stoplights on hills.
User avatar #177 to #176 - ThunderChunderFrom (10/18/2013) [-]
Haha I can imagine people everywhere trying to do hill starts, leaving the clutch in and rolling back into the car behind them.

I'm honestly getting nervous of my first driving test thats taking place next Saturday.
User avatar #125 to #103 - yusay (10/18/2013) [-]
It's not that bad. Least you can't do what I did.

My keys were broken and if you clicked lock the car would stay unlocked. I remembered this right after the test was over and my instructor was walking back inside with me, so, since I was a few feet behind her, I jogged back to my car, got in, and started the engine. I forgot to tell her that my keys were broken and she thought I was driving away before I got my license.
#167 to #103 - Nameloc (10/18/2013) [-]
It's really easy.
If you really **** up, then they'll tell you to drive straight back to the DMV.

You're allowed X amount of mistakes. Not sure, but you can definitely slip up a few times.

When I took the road test, I was so damn nervous... It also didn't help that I was driving in my mom's car. (Her vehicle, the PT Cruiser, has working back-up lights. My car does not (for now), although the PT Cruiser's steering is horrid.)

When driving back into the parking lot, I accidentally hit the curb.
Also, since I'm in Virginia, I stopped a bit after the stop bar at a stop light. Which they counted as not stopping for a stop sign... Why they counted it as a stop sign, I don't know... (Also, the stop bars are made too far back, here. You could literally stop your car after you've fully passed the stop bar/ line, and wouldn't be hit by other cars at the intersection - This is the opposite for Arkansas. There, the stop bars/ lines are too far outward. Stopping at/ on the stop bar is way too far forward.)
User avatar #168 to #167 - Nameloc (10/18/2013) [-]
But yeah, needless to say, I passed the driven test at the DMV that day.
Those were my only two mistakes. Slightly hitting the curb and not "stopping at a stop sign."
(With the curb thing... Well, I was turning in and the rear tire hit the curb for a split second... So much understeer.)
User avatar #110 to #103 - akkere (10/18/2013) [-]
pro-tip: Don't be. At least, try not to be. The one thing that makes most people fail (you know, those that aren't actually **** drivers) is being so nervous that they can't properly make decisions, even ones as basic as turning into a proper lane.

Funny Story: A driving instructor once told me a story how he had an old lady go to take her first test, and she was relatively relaxed at first. Then the actual inspector walked in, clad in uniform (this was New York, srs bsnss) and apparently the old lady was so nervous that she literally **** herself.
Don't be that old lady.

The government expanded this law earlier this year. All new licences are only valid for 15 years after which they have to be retaken.

As far as I'm aware, they do in the UK. You also can't get a licence until you're 17, so there's that.
