    First;driver's training in school. Then my Dad taught me the stick shift so that I could buy his 78 Datsun pickup.
    He's not a patient man, so I tried to learn as fast as I could.
    5 speed transmissions are very forgiving!

    A mate of a older brother of mine.


    It was 1949 and he had a 1927 Whippet utility, manual crash box of course nothing else around in those days.


    I got my first car at the same time so switched to learning in that, a 1930 Morris Isis Roadster. Hand signals no indicators anywhere.


    Got my license first time tested. Number New South Wales B 54860 car rego plates TW 347.

    I also went to driving school. It was 2 years after my permit that I could finally get an auto, so I had to re-qualify.

    My Aunt,  in 1976, What a wild ride.  Learned on the family Chevy Impala.  Wish now, that I had an Impala......., strong, powerful car!     At the same time, using  Uncle  Elmer's  standard  truck,   I learned to  use a stick shift.  Grateful now,  can drive about anything!!   :-}

    Really?? Didn't they wonder, wonderer, how you suddenly knew how to drive one day? :->

    Domino's Pizza, that's probably why I had sooooooooooo, many tickets. I had over twenty unpaid tickets when I was 19. I started working for them when I was 17, that's when delivery was 30 minutes or the pizza was free.

    driver education class.My dad helped also.
