Learning. We get permits before actual licenses over here. At 15 in my district you get one of those learners permits then at 18 you get a full privilege license.

1.2L naturally aspirated 4-banger with probably around 50HP.

Do I care that it's not the fastest thing on four wheels, no. Do I have fun driving it, hell yes.

[EDIT] I was overoptimistic with my guestimate of 50HP - handbook lists 33HP as new and it's now 11 years old. I figure it's got about 20-25HP left. LOL.
