What is the definition of Terminal Velocity?

Could anyone help me with this simple question? Its fairly easy but I just cant grasp the concept of it properly. I've looked through all the revision books and on the internet, I think it would be easier to understand in someone's own words. Would really appreciate any help. 

Thanks, Lauren x

Terminal velocity is when the friction force equals the driving force. It's when the velocity has reached its maximum and the object can't gain any more velocity.
