Les doesn't have a driving license yet, but to impress his gorgeous date Mercedes he borrows his grandpa's Cadillac for a night out... and has to witness the poor car going through more and more intense maltreatments. Written by

After the drunk man drives off in the Cadillac, Les, Dean, and Charles get in the man's Volkswagen. Charles says they can't take the car, and Les says "Yeah? Well, he took our car. We're gonna take his!", but his lips aren't moving when he says it. See more »
Les' DMV Examiner:
Driving instructor: Now Anderson, I want you to take a good look at my cup of coffee. Now, I LOVE my coffee, it's probably the only thing I cherish on this god forsaken mud ball called Earth! what I'm trying to say, Anderson, is that most examiners rely on this clipboard... throws the clipboard out the window... I don't believe in that shit. What I do believe is in my cup of coffee. Now this coffee is hot. If it falls on me it'll probably burn me, right? Speak up, son!
Les: Yes, yes!

Get out of my Dreams, Get Into My Car! Oh yeah! 80's bliss...
License To Drive was one of those 80's flicks that I had always wanted to see, and yet, never could find a copy. Till now! It was playing on TV recently and I have not only watched it, but am waiting to see if I am fortunate to find the DVD so I can buy it.
Quite simply, if you are a fan of the 80's and/or love your nostalgia then this film is for you! Typical 80's groove, lingo, starring leads (introducing a young and very attractive Heather Graham in her screen debut as the delicious Mercedes Lane) and, something that definitely deserves a mention is the soundtrack! Great tunes that suit the mood perfectly. Billy Ocean's "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car" was a highlight and with the title "License to Drive" was the ultimate song. There are others by Belinda Carlise and the Breakfast Club that will have you not only reminiscing, but toe tapping and humming as well.
Also, look out for James Avery as Les' DMV Instructor. What a champion! Anyway everyone, Get Outta Your Seats... Get it into your DVD player...
Have fun, Cheers!
