Learning to drive is a huge milestone in the step to growing up and becoming more independent. Admittedly, it comes with it’s fair share of expense but I think the pay off is definitely worth it.
I remember some of my friends getting their license while studying for A-levels, and getting their first car. The freedom that comes with that is amazing – but I didn’t start my driving journey at that time. At the time, my parents discouraged me from learning because of the cost of lessons. They felt they was no rush to get it done and that I could just learn any time in future if I did need to drive.
