    It's the first time + present perfect

    The expression, "It is the first (second, third, fourth etc) time"  is followed by has/have + 3rd form of the verb.


    Example: You are having problems changing the tyre on your car as you have never done this before.

    You say, "It's the first time I've changed a tyre".

    It's incorrect to say, "It's the first time I change a tyre".

    Imagine you successfully changed the tyre. A few hours later you meet a friend.You would say, "It was the first time I had changed a tyre."

                         It's the first time she has given medecine.
