Learning to drive can be a challenging task for a high school student at Juarez. They have to take Driver’s Ed. and practice driving around the crowded and noisy city streets. Once they have mastered that they must take and pass the test which can be a whole other challenge. For Jose Vazquez, his experience was a bit different

“I started to drive when I was 20 years old,” says Vazquez.  “At first I felt nervous when I was in front of the steering wheel.”

Jose didn’t have to worry about crowded city streets or cars zooming by on the expressways.

“When I started to drive I didn’t crash or was close to crashing because where I was driving there were no cars in the roads,” says Vazquez who learned to drive in Michoacan Mexico.

He learned to drive, but not only one type of car.

“I learned to drive by myself, but in another car that wasn’t mine because I didn’t have a car,” said Vazquez who got his forst car in 1992.

“I know how to drive automatic, manual, and standard and consider myself a regular driver. I started to drive because I needed to work and if I didn’t have a car, I wouldn’t be able to work,” said Vazquez who works in construction.

Some advice that Vazquez gives is that if you have an opportunity to get your license earlier; try your best to take that opportunity because its easier and faster.
