I love this film! I first saw it in the early 90s when I was in my early teens and it has stayed with me ever since. For me, this film is the ultimate 80s nostalgia trip; it is the text book example of a 80s teen flick. It's a travesty that when people think of 80s teen films, they immediately think of John Hughes's back catalogue, i.e. The Breakfast Club, Ferris Beullers Day Off etc. How this film got overlooked is beyond me. It has two of the biggest teen idols of the 80s (Corey Haim, Corey Feldman), a wide-eyed teenage Heather Graham, a sleek red Ferrari sports car and the entire film is based on one of the most pressing matters facing any teenager - learning to drive.

I watched this film when I was learning to drive and it's a great film to watch on the nerve-racking night before your driving test.

An 80s classic for me. Takes me back to my youth and still brings a smile to my face, worth every penny.
Les (Corey Haim) needs to pass his driving test so he and pals can go out in search of dates, however this doesn't go to plan and mayhem follows with a night none of them will forget.

I know it is more convenient to download films, in fact the first time I saw this was via a download, but on noting that the DVD has a ten-minute additional sequence of the original ending (albeit in vhs quality), and short interviews with the two stars, and a commentary by the director and the writer, I decided it was worth buying the DVD. I'm glad I did.

Every teenage boy needs to watch this movie, if you are from 'The Goonies' or the 'Back to the Future' generation then this is a stock watch. Corey Haim and Feldman at their best, Heather Graham in her teenage years, just to hot for words. All I can say is I want to go to 'Archies'.

This is a late eighties comedy (from the year after Lost Boys) starring the two Corys (Haim & Feldman) that has actually been under exposed on British TV over the years - well it shouldn't be because fans of their work or general 80's US comedy film fans will find this well worth a look.
Les Anderson (Haim) has just failed to get his driving license and has been grounded by his father but he isn't about to let that stop him from going on a dream date on Saturday night with Mercedes (played by a young Heather Graham) - he decides to sneak out while his parents are in bed & borrow his granddad's prized Cadillac car - what can possibly go wrong now?
Well unfortunately his date has a taste for Champagne & after roping Feldman into some late night vehicle repairs (after round one involving a towing incident, some off road driving etc) he doesn't have the good sense to call it quits - so it's off to "Archies" to meet more girls with his date safely tucked away in the boot!
Needless to say the early vehicle damage issues pale into insignificance by comparison to round two.
Throughout the chaos a Frank Sinatra soundtrack gets stuck in the tape player.
Les ultimately gets a shot at redemption & the chance for a happy ending.
Not quite a classic comedy but always very watchable.

'License to Drive' is a teen-comedy adventure that released in 1988 to widespread critical acclaim and was a surprise hit at the box-office. The movie was also successful on its home video release where it has since gained a cult following.

The film tells the story of Les Anderson (Corey Haim), a 16-year-old who desperately wants to get a driving license as it means the world to him. He also has a serious crush on a girl, Mercedes Lane (Heather Graham) who goes to the same school as him. Add his wisecracking best friend Dean (Corey Feldman) to the equation and you have a teen adventure to remember.

The movie in a nutshell is funny, innocent, entertaining, unwinding and clearly one of the best 80's feel-good teen movies. The pace of the movie is fast and the situations that are created in the movie are ones, which you can relate to, especially from your teen days. This connection combined with the comedy really strikes a chord with the viewer.

I watched the movie on VHS back in 1989 and it straight away became one of my favourite teen movies. I loved it and saw it so many times without becoming bored. I watched it recently on DVD and I can happily say it's equally as good as when I first saw it. It bought back a lot of good and cherished memories from the 80's, which was an era of its kind.

The movie stars The two Coreys (Corey Haim & Corey Feldman) who were born in the same year and were two popular actors in the 1980s. The Corey's became a brand and have made nine movies together and this was their second collaboration. They made a number of successful teen-orientated films in the late 1980's, which have deservedly become cult classics.
