I purchased the VW bug used in the movie while living in Sacramento, CA in 1994. The front was damaged just before I bought it. I turned it into a Baja Bug and sold it in Hampton, Virginia in 1995.

Bizarrely, Heather Graham no longer includes 'License to Drive' on her CV. Heather was seen soon after 'License to Drive' in 'Twin Peaks' as 'Annie', Agent Dale Cooper's strange girlfriend.

Heather Graham grew up as a good, Catholic girl whose parents were so strict, she wasn't even allowed to watch "The Love Boat." She was also forced to turn down a starring role in "Heathers" because Mom and Dad considered the language too risque.

The commentary on the most recent DVD cites that Heather Graham's father was an FBI agent in real life--and constantly on the set making everyone nervous.

Following "License To Drive," Heather Graham played a small-role as a young Mary Ann Benedict in Ivan Reitman's "Twins" [1988]. Then she played lead co-starring of Nadine opposite Matt Dillon, in Gus Van Sant's "Drugstore Cowboy" [1989], followed by a part in the dark-comedy "I Love You To Death" [1990] playing the part of Bridget. Then she starred as Kimberly in forgetable "Guilty As Charged"[1991]. Then came a co-starring role opposite 90210's Jamie Walters & John Travolta in the film "Shout"[1991]. Finally she played the part of Angie Blackburn on both the TV series and the movie of "Twin Peaks"[1990/91].
