About Goggomobil

The Goggomobil was a microcar produced in the Bavarian town Dingolfing after World War II by Hans Glas. There was a conventional looking four passenger two-door sedan and a very sleek sports coupé. The engine was originally 250 cc but increased to 395 cc and 20 hp (15 kW). It had an electric pre-selective transmission and a manual clutch. The engine was behind the rear wheels. 219,531 sedans and 66,511 coupés were built from 1955 to 1969. Between 1957 and 1961 some 700 sports cars called Goggomobil Dart were produced by Buckle Motors Pty Ltd in Sydney, Australia. Glas also produced the highly rated Goggomobil motor scooter. The Glas Auto works at Dingolfing were subsequently taken over by BMW.

Australian Yellow Pages advertisement

Australian Yellow Pages ran a well-known advertising campaign which referred to a Goggomobil ("not the Dart"). The Yellow Pages advertisement was used as a basis for an advertisement for Mobil, properly licensed from the producers of the original advertisement. Another unauthorised advertisement for Shannons Insurance resulted in a Federal Court of Australia case. The case (TELSTRA CORPORATION LIMITED AND SENSIS PTY LTD v ROYAL AND SUN ALLIANCE INSURANCE AUSTRALIA LIMITED) was resolved in favour of the producers of the Yellow Pages, Sensis. Tommy Dysart featured in all of these advertisements, as did a number of different Goggomobils. The advert has been parodied a number of times in Australian TV shows, usually featuring Tommy Dysart.

The Varying Drivers License Requirements Around the World

Minimum driving ages, the number of passengers young drivers can have with them at any time, the times of day that drivers under the age of 18 can drive…

These all vary depending on where young motorists are driving. They vary, even, across the United States.

For instance, in Maine, motorists under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to have any passengers with them as they drive for the first 180 days after they obtain their licenses. In Alabama, motorists under the age of 18 can have one passenger with them.

And that’s just one example of the differences in driving license requirements from one part of the country to the next. The differences are even more pronounced when comparing one country to another. Minimum driving ages vary widely across the world. While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
