Barney'* legal and Georgia will never be the same. Welcome to the road Chris and we better finally see Barney in some better settings than your driveway and the trees in the side yard Gonna need a second job to pay for the gas now. Once ya have a license, it'* a compulsion to just drive, drive, drive. At least when I got mine gas was 19-23 cents a gallon...... Stop laffing, I'm not that old. And to think at that price they use to give us incentives like a free car wash, a 6pack of coke, and a stupid plstic litter bag to hang off the radio **** with a fillup. I had a 64 Pontiac Catalina Sport Coupe in my Senior Year with a 26 gallon gas tank and could fill it up for 5 bucks.

I couldn't see the cones over the back of the car, stupid Chrysler. Otherwise, I probably would've aced my test.

I learned driving in a 98 yukon, so car control, and lane manners were easy for my test.

I took it in a 5 speed 88 Nova... When you learned on a giant truck, a compact is EASY. Here in MN the cones are the same distance no matter what you drive. The hardest part of my test was not messing up the 5 speed. Pretty sure i missed a whooping 0 points..

way to go man....i remember the feeling when i got mine.

THEY MADE YOU PARALLEL PARK....ahah.. i didn't get to do that...

I was backing up and some jerk was flying through the DMV parking lot..and i saw him....the chick giving me my test said "good save" and after i pulled out, she said go up the street and turn around...you know how to drive..LMAO

Just be careful out there..there are some crazies on the road these days..

Congratulations!! I took my test in a 1977 Ford LTDII. The hood was bigger than most compact cars these days. I did very well on the tests and aced the parallel parking. I laugh at Jeff because to this day he has problems parallel parking. It takes him a few attempts to get it right but he has gotten better at it.

Just watch out for those poles
