why not: "I do not have MY drivers licence? Ehliyet-im

This is how you make "have" sentences -- literally, it is something like "My-licence does-not-exist" = "I have no licence".

Elmam var = I have an apple.

For "I have my apple", I think it would have to be something like "Elmam bende" (my apple is at me).

So, how would you say "I do not have my driver's license"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mizinamo

I'd say "Ehliyetim bende değil". (Well, I'd probably actually say "Sürücü belgem bende değil", but Duo teaches "ehliyet".)

"My licence is not at-me".

I believe the correct is: I do not have a driving licence

Why is it a 'driver's' license. Where is the word 'driver' in the sentence?

Simply saying "I don't have a license" is accepted; driver is implied in this sentence. I imagine you can use the same sentence if someone asks you to fly a plane, ride a motorcycle, or sell beer (all different types of licenses).

I don't have a driver's license was not accepted. Why?
