I hope you guys are having a good time.
I know that The simple past or present perfect can be used for new or recent happenings. (in AmE) For example, "I lost my key" and "I've lost my key"
On this point, say that you're having a driving lesson and this is your first time driving. Then, would you find this sentence totally fine in that situation? "It's the first time I drove a car." I learned that we should say "it's the first time I've driven a car." there, but I'm really curious. thank you!
