Are 11-year-olds allowed to drive  cars in private estates? I think this happened last year too, but didn't make it to the front pages because of the affair in Mallorca.

Yes, as long as they are on private land he can drive.

I used to drive on my grandfather farm in his old work truck from about 10 or so. He didnít care about the truck and we could only drive on his farm road - from the house to the mailbox. We would never dare drive anywhere else and there was but nothing but fields and we couldnít really get into much trouble ( now the moped was a different story).
But me and all my cousins were excellent drivers by the time we turned 16 and it was fun for us.
I think itís pretty common and innocent for kids who live on private farmland / estates

Me too Cord!  I started on a tractor at 10 or 12 and was a very good driver by 16. Life on a farm had its benefits.

None of us know how fast or far they were going.  I know plenty of people who started driving on farm/private land at that age in the US. With proper supervision I see no problem, it gets you used to a vehicle before you take on on a road for the first time.

As for what would happen? At the I'm sure low speeds they were going you'd fix whatever broke and it becomes a learning experience.

Itís private land so itís not against the law. James is also sat on Sophieís lap so she can take over control at any time. He also probable canít reach the pedals so Sophie is likely to be controlling the speed (and any time he has been shown driving, heís been sat on his mum or dadís lap).

I get the impression that James really likes cars and he does this a lot. Even the Queen mentioned it during a car related engagement a couple of years ago. She said her grandson who was 9 at the time was always trying to drive cars, especially hers!

Different lifestyles,obviously. The legal age here is 18 ,minimum 15 for two- , three- wheeled mopeds and light quadricycles ,and 16 for more powerful  motorcycles . Where I live, smallholders are dispersed all over the place,very often  within a walking distance. At times,tractor accidents involving children  may occur on the farms. I know  that, both  in urban and rural areas ,a  kid over 16 --with an adult--   may  start driving on bylanes, but I don't even know if that is legal. Nowadays, more and more people are getting used to driving even short distances, but we tend to walk to places. Or cycle, or use public transport.

16 seems to be the norm in the US with being able to get a learners permit varying between 14-15 1/2.  I know back in the dark ages I got my license at 16 in Michigan but all the states I've lived in seem to be 16 with having had a permit or 18 without.

It's the insurance here. If you get permit first, then license it costs less for insurance.

Me too. She is coming out of one of those awkward phases most kids have, and she looks great!

Agree that Sophie and Ed have done fine job, upper class looks, but she seems to me very down to earth too.

Great to see Phillip out and about.
