STUDENT DRIVER Signs

*** VOTES ARE ANONYMOUS ***


I'm thinking of getting "STUDENT DRIVER" signs for various reasons...

1] Mock the JDM Shoshinsha/Wakaba badges people have which mean the same thing.
2] These signs in English are a thing in Japan like how they rebadge "Toyota 86" to "Scion FR-S." My car with JDM parts trying to be USDM will make it even more genuinely JDM.
3] Removable/reusable so I can put them on/take them off as I please.
4] Drivers on the road will space themselves from me, creating an invisible bubble.
5] Even the best pro race drivers constantly learn to perfect their driving technique. We're all students of driving, especially in a car purpose built to teach us how to drive.

Con: Tacky - may draw unwanted attention.


Style A
$5 for a set of 4 for all sides of my car.
The most generic and genuine looking. Cheapest option.


Style B
$15 for a set of 3.
A bit more stylized. Only 3 pieces so front of car won't get one.


Style C
$7 each.
Most stylized. Font makes it look like any other car sticker if you don't read the words. I'd get 4 for all sides of my car making it the most expensive option at $28.

Wow the most retarded thing I've seen here so far. None of your reasons are valid, and it's best to leave these to people who actually have to use them.

I'd like to see your arguments against each of the 5 reasons in the OP.

Not gonna lie, I saw one on an old ratrod and I thought it was hilarious. I lol'd out loud. It's just another funny decal in my opinion.

On a twin it won't have the same effect as it would as on a new Stingray or really any super car that makes it truly funny like in the ratrod example above. While I love my FRS too it doesn't have the same image as a super car and people will likely just think your a student driver...

Whenever I see student drivers, I make it a point to fuck around with them. So consider yourself FUCKED.

Precisely one reaction I'd want so drivers space themselves from me on the road. Also, I never thought higher end cars would have this so that wasn't part of my reasoning (only heard tuner cars in Japan do).

If you want people to think you're a student driver just drive 10 mph under the speed limit and fail at parallel parking.

Do people actually put student driver stickers on their cars when they're learning? I usually only see them on driver's education cars and they're usually crappy Corollas. If I saw one on a twin I wouldn't think you were actually learning how to drive, just trying to be funny.

If I wanted space I stay in the right lane, and if they're still riding my b-hole I just let off the gas or even brake check them. They get the message or pass eventually.

Dumb, Ugly, Rice

are the first 3 words that come to mind. I think stickers on a car in general look stupid, but this brings it to a whole new level.
