    I'm not sure there is anything that you can do that you couldn't already do before you was 21, except get in m-bar-go in Tyldesley..... they have a 21 age limit!

    At age 21


    You can adopt a child.


    You can supervise a learner driver if you have held, and still hold, a full licence for that type of car for at least three years. You can apply for a provisional licence to drive a large passenger vehicle.


    You can obtain a flight navigator’s licence, a flight engineer’s licence or an airline transport pilot’s licence to fly an aeroplane, helicopter or gyroplane.

    Legal Issues

    If you receive a custodial sentence you will be sent to prison.

    If you were ‘looked after’ by the local authority between the ages of 16 and 18, Kensington and Chelsea have a duty to advise and befriend you and in exceptional circumstances assist you with cash until you are 24.

    Political Participation

    You can become a Member of Parliament, a local councillor or a local mayor.

    Indeed. There are several catergories and weights, and you're not allowed to drive them all until you're 21 (as far as I know!)
