License to Drive

The sixteen year-old Les Anderson has a crush on his schoolmate Mercedes Lane, but he is shy and she has a boyfriend, Paolo, who has a fancy car. Les and his twin sister Natalie Anderson are preparing to the driving test and while Natalie studies the questions, he does not pay attention to them. Les fails the test but is not brave enough to tell neither to his father Mr. Anderson nor to his pregnant mother Mrs. Anderson and his best friends Dean and the clumsy Charles.

When Mercedes has an argument with Paolo, she invites Les to date her to make Paolo jealous. Meanwhile Les' parents discover that he has flunked his driver's test and they ground him. However, when Mercedes calls him asking if they are not going to date, Les sneaks away from his house and drives his grandfather's Cadillac that is parked in the garage to date Mercedes in the beginning of a nightmarish night of adventures.
