Hey Tamma is it true that to pass your test in Finland you need to be able to power slide a car?

Iridehorses, I meant when it was my time my dad didn't allow me to drive his car. Well one big reason was that I hit his car more then twice. Once I hit to another car while at someone's wedding and second time I hit a lorry infront of a police station.

I was a very bad driver by then however learnt how to drive normally later .

This is a 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. This car is not mine, I don't have any pics of my first car, but mine was just like this one, only light grey. It was a beast of a car that no 16yo should have been behind the wheel of. Also it only got like 15 MPG.

I learned to drive in my instructor's orange Suzuki Swift, which looks like this:

It's a nice little car. In the summers, I pay to go on my dad's insurance for his car - a P reg Peugeot 406 estate. When I passed and my dad surprised me by putting me on his car, all my friends were amazed that I was driving something so huge. It's a 2.1L turbo diesel too. Americans should understand that the norm for young people in the UK is a 1.2-1.5 L hatchback such as a Ford Ka, Ford Fiesta or Vauxhall Corsa. Small cars are far, far more common than SUVs.

At first I can say that I didn't find a prompt Finnish translation for a term called "power slide" (Me and my language skills, I know). I still catch that it can mean "power oversteer" or "handbrake turn" and assume that you mean something like that?

On the one hand I would say that this is true but on the other hand I would say it isn't. Nobody asks you to do a powerslide when you're doing your test or at least I've never heard that. But you have to do "the slippy roads practice" before the test. It's a special track which has been slicked with oil and water or something and meant to give you a some kind of insight about it how a car works on slippy roads. When doing this practice you should induce your car to slide all kind of slidings (including an over-, and understeering) and also do brakes, speedups etc. When I was doing my practice it was intended to do a handbrake turn too. But this is only a practice so you can't pass or fail it like a test. Still, if you haven't do this practice you can't attend the final driving test.

So I could say that nobody demand you to do a power slide during the test but you have to do this practice before it. And often it includes a power slide too.

My first car was horrible, a chevy lumina that the heater/air did not work and it was black with burgandy interior, I broke it going over a speed bumb at 30-40mph. Then I got to drive my dads 1984 944 Porsche that I also hated because it was too small, I like big trucks, then I got my truck when my dad saw it for sale near our house, but didnt tell me about it becuase he didnt think I could handle parking a long bed.....hmph I make my own arking spots. I love my truck!!! She is amazing!!! 1995 Chevy Cheyanne and has all the towing equipment installed, she's a V8 I think 350 horse power? But I really really want one of those big Ford Disels (sp?) so I can get me a gooseneck trailer and so I can run stuff over

I call her truckie
