How to start independence?

I'm a 16 year old female living in FL, I turn 17 in September. I'm currently a junior in high school, starting my senior year later this year(Aug). I'm a straight A student, and I'm finishing my senior year a few months early. I already have a Medical Masters Degree (finished early during high school) and I plan on furthering my education once I graduate from high school.

I DO NOT have a job, a drivers license, state ID or a car, and I live with my parents. I want to start being financially independent and move out before the age of 18 (17) due to an abusive, toxic relationship with my parents.

Can anyone give me a step by step bullet-point on what the hell to do, in order? With things such as obtaining a credit/debit card, getting an apartment, taxes, insurance, buying a car, locking my credit etc.. I'm not helpless, it's just a lot on me and I can't go to my mother for help or advice with anything, I have too much pride and I'll admit it so here I am. I'm also searching google for anything else. Right now, I'm taking my drivers ed course online so I can at least have a permit, take my test online, and start practicing how to drive so I can get a job and have some cash flow coming in. I understand that you need to save in order to be able to afford anything, and I'm very good with saving cash up. I don't go out much so the majority of my cash will be spent on food, gas, and car notes (+other bills) when I have my own.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! It's MUCH appreciated!!

Since you are considered a minor until you are 18, you cannot get a credit card, get car insurance, get a car loan, get an apartment, or most other things a legal adult can do.

You seem like a very intelligent person who has a bright future ahead of you. Just don't screw it up by wanting to get out on your own too early. The real world out there is not a a kind and gentle world, especially for kids. Spend the next two years preparing to move out and understanding the things you'll be faced with — need for job, money, a place to live, a way to get from point A to point B, credit, insurance, basic money management, how to get a loan, how to get a credit card, how to avoid scams and cheats, and the importance of health insurance.

Wow—tough place to start. Is your abusive relationship with your parents mental or physical abuse?? It makes a difference because if mental (words only) you might be able to tough it out after graduation by NOT being at home much—work lots and spend the rest of your time in libraries etc. If it is physical then you have to move out immediately—-go to a shelter.

Lets say it is mental abuse—words only. Your "must haves" to move out are 1. a drivers license (or ID card if you live where public transportation is available); 2, 3 months living expenses cash (roughly $3000); 3. Two months rent (first and last months—-a roommate cuts this in half—-check on line in your local area for roommates needed); A job ready to go the day you graduate. This job can be minimum wage at first just to get cash flow. Maybe your medical training can get you a Drs office job—Dr or optometry or urgent care office) Do NOT use a credit card for any of the above.

Once you are out on your own you can consider student loans and further education.

Let me know thru comments if you have any questions.

LOL you so uninformed uneducated clueless about Reality of world.
U don't qualify to move out until 20yrs old.
Spend next 2 – 3 yrs learning from educated adults locally.
Only place u qualify to move out to is friends couches, abandoned building cars, homeless shelter.
Local educated adults can explain why
