18 to smoke, although the State Senate has been trying to raise it to 19.

Driving is 16, but you can apply for a "hardship license" at 15.

Re: question for Texans

You should know that driving in Texas is considered more of a 'contact sport.'





Also, pay attention to posted 'night speed limits' on the highways.

Re: question for Texans

I thought the farm driving age was 14. (Tractors, etc., but no driving off-property)

Re: question for Texans

I would have thought you can drive whatever you want at any age you want on private land like a farm, that is certainly the case here in the UK.

Erm, no.

If you don't get caught then it's ok.

13. How old do I need to be to drive ‘off road’?
As long as you do nothing which counts as driving in a public place, there is no limit on age. There are clubs which organise off-road events for under-age drivers or riders – the LARA web-site may have helpful contact details.

Re: question for Texans

I think it's fair enough, if it's your land it' none of the government's business IMO. You aren't putting anybody but yourself at risk.

I'd think there would still be negligence issues for the landowners who gave permission were a child to be injured though.

They shouldn't bother with minimum ages and just make the requirement whether you have the ability to use Google to answer simple questions or not.
