Pretty sure #4 means the 8 hours of supervised driving with the driving instructor. You have to do 24 hour besides that with a parent, 4? at night I think, and do a 24 hour drivers ed course. Then your test.

I never did driver's ed with an instructor. My dad taught me and when he felt I was ready he took me to do the actual test. Well, he didn't teach me to parallel park because I got frustrated. Out of panic, I got it right the second try. After passing it all, I was so nervous that I started speeding back to the school which should have been an automatic fail, but my instructor knew I was nervous and told me it was okay and to slow down.

Not to be an ass, but are y'all reading the FML correctly? He PASSED his driver's test and now has his license. The instructor took off the learner sign because he though OP would not need it anymore. Usually, you don't have the nerves after you pass; You usually feel relieved that you passed.

You're all cute. In NSW, Australia (not sure about the other states), we have to hold our license for a year and do at least 120 hours, 20 of which are at night. The driving instructor is optional though if you do drive with one, it offers triple hours - you do one hour of driving but they record three hours - up to ten times.

in the UK there isn't a set amount of hours. You learn and take the test when you're ready. you're also not allowed to drive the car home if you pass your test, if it's instructors car, you're not insured anymore

Actually 35 you are still insured once you pass, but a majority of instructors don't let you drive home from a test because you are either sad from failing or flying high on adrenaline from passing! Neither is a good for safe driving :)

In my state I've never heard of anything about hours. Back when I was getting my permit, you could get your permit at 15 and then at 15 1/2 you could get your intermediate license. Now you have to wait till you're 16 so instead of just 6 months, it's a year. But once you turn 18 you get a regular license, and once you turn 21 it's faced a different way (before 21 up and down; after side to side).

You need 60 or 65 (with so many being in inclement weather and at night, but the don't actually check your hours) in my state and have your permit for six months, but there's no requirement for a driving instructor. Although you can take the test with an instructor and its apparently easier than going to the DMV. And you need to use your own car at least at the DMV.
