About Vaillante

Les Usines Vaillante is a fictional France-based and family-run automobile manufacturer created by Henri Vaillant and specialized in trucks and high performance sports cars and which is featured in the French comic book series Michel Vaillant.

Vaillante was in the beginning a French transporting company. They also created their own trucks and cars, and decided to enter the Formula 1, with Michel Vaillant, the son of Henri, as their pilot. The chief designer of Vaillante is Jean-Pierre, the elder brother of Michel.

The Vaillante logo is very similar to that of actual French auto maker Matra.

Vaillante has a large following in France and Belgium, and there are many toy models of Vaillante cars available, based on the series. There have been also a few attempts to create real Vaillante cars, both road cars and racing cars. Recently, in 2002, a Vaillante prototype participated in Le Mans to obtain footage for the Luc Besson film Michel Vaillant.

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.
