Yea, for me I learned on private property. Not sure how gated community works. Either way, he still drives better than most people I see on the road now.

I also learned on private property. My dad helped me drive his OLD ragtop Jeep, I guess manuel is pretty hard for a pre-10 year old.

i first drove at 13 where i actually wasn't in a driveway. my dad took me to the fairgrounds in his 03 dodge ram and then again a year later in the metro to teach me to drive stick. my favorite part was when he tought me to do burnouts in the dodge that day lolol

Reminds me of me when I started driving. Except I was driving a much older and much bigger 1986 Monte Carlo SS.

I allowed this to continue because I felt it a good story, and many of us have fond memories of such. For every couple hundred that view it and smile, a few will stand and scream foul like their opinion is tantamount and they are lily white/guilt free. Whatever.

For the record Komatoby, I do want you to know I consider this a one time worthy story, you did this without coercement, but that I do need to have a responsible duty here. This vid had its day in the Sun, but I won't allow another. That would make me feel we encouraged the behavior, and let you think we will tolerate you one-upping yourself further.
