Just kidding XR8Rebel2001 - tryin' to stir ya!
I remember when I got my L's. Still remember the day... It was my 16th birthday and I rushed down to the motor registry and sat my test. Passed it and then drove my Dad's car home in Peak hour!!! Was bloody marvellous..... :s6:
Anyways, back to the topic of this post...
In SA we don't have these restrictions (although who knows, they may come in at a later stage) but I think that if you are with a fully licenced driver, there should be no questions about what sort of car you are driving - as the full licenced driver is there to direct you.
With P platers, I can see why the restrictions are in place, as there is nobody to supervise them and they can do whatever they want.
Granted, not all 'teachers' (fully licenced drivers supervising L platers) are completely responsible, but at least the L plater has somebody next to them with a bit of experience under their belt.
Oh well, I guess if u get an traffic cop who is a dickhead and has had a bad day there is not much u can do about it..
Still, I feel for ya Yugostar. Good luck with the driving (and get back into that GT whenever u can... heheh
