I started driving our 8N when I was 10. Started with cultivating. Also I hired out to our neighbor during baling seasons to drive the tractor (sometimes an H Farmall and sometimes an Oliver 70) and wagons while he and his son loaded the bails from the ground. Then, when they set the forks to lift to the loft, I drove the tractor on the hay rope.
At 11 my dad had me drive the Chevy PU about 1/4 mile down the road to a field. Neighbor lady was in her garden and shocked to see me.
As time went on, I learned the Sherman and...WAHOO!
As others have said, you have to be the judge.
