I don't have a permit, nor do I want it. There is simply no reason for me to do much of anything around town in a car. My parents want me to get it for emergencies, but what kind of emergency would there be if neither of them could drive?
And there's an ambulance station literally up the road.
Honestly, I'm more worried that they'll make me run errands for them and then expect me to pay for my own gas. -.-
