    Arrow Is this considered a specific time in English?

    After I read it... before I read it... when I read it... until I read it.

    And can we use such expressions with the present perfect tense?

    For example: "It has given me a small idea after I read it" or "The accident has occurred when I was driving my car".

    I would use the past tense in both.
