      Can you drive? Are you currently learning to drive?

      I myself at the moment can not drive however I am hoping to get those driving lessons sorted soon :) really would love to be able to drive as I could go further and do more, at the moment I am really limited as to where I can go due to transport and the fact that public transport can be costly nowadays.

      If you do drive, how long have you been driving for?

      I don't drive. I know how. But i don't like city driving, cause the cars are always so close to me. I might take lessons soon, maybe find a friend willing to give me lessons for free. Have been thinking about it seriously. Will be handy if i start back college classes and don't want to pay for cab ride.

      Yeah that is one of my reasons to being able to go back to college and learn but only being able to do night lessons at the moment and the buses only going so far so for some time in the year I end up walking the streets alone in the dark which isn't great, if I had a car it would be a straight drive from college to virtually outside my front door which would be alot better.

      Oh! That's scary. I hate walking alone after dark.

      Have you thought about buying an electric scooter or something else like that?

      I have :) never been too steady on a scooter though myself or a moped which is a shame. They would be ideal for going to and from college that is for sure especially the way I have to walk once getting off the bus which is a very quiet and dark area during the night time.

      I drive since I was 18. It's kind of necessary in my city, if you don't have a car then you either take the city bus or walk. City bus is not so common here like in other cities and it only runs till 6 pm so not much time. On the other hand if you don't drive you don't get stressed out by the traffic.

      I've had my license since my junior year in high school. I usually don't mind driving but I hate driving in the town that I go to college in. Way too many idiots around.

      No I am not but I really think that it is an essential skill than every woman should learn. However, I can't say that I am suitable to learn it now. I am just so scared that I may just be in an accident. My husband actually insists that he will teach me how, but I would always reject his offer. Or maybe I am just so coward. LOL

      Ah! That is a shame cause they are real money savers. In our area, they sell the three wheeled bike with a big front tire and two back wheels that is perfectly balanced. It is very cheap by comparison to a moped or electric bike even. I had thought to get one for myself just in case our car ever broke down again.

      I do not know how to drive and I do not think I am suitable to be a driver. :doh:
      I have short attention span and would fear to hit someone if ever I would drive.But I think I could try learning how to drive but would just drive in a not busy highway and only during day time. lol
