Attainment of adulthood varies with social and educational levels. For apprentices, adulthood is reached when the 3 years of apprenticeship training is finished (or at the earliest at the legal age of majority of 18). A student, possibly living at home and on a parental allowance, may be aged 25 or more before being considered an adult. Other "indicators" for adulthood are obtaining a driver's license, making a living, and renting one's own apartment; in other words, "standing on one's own feet". The Kohabitarche, i.e., the onset of sexual activity, is not an indicator of adulthood.
