Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I'm 17, so legally I could get my licence. Is this really the ideal time to start learning though? What about learning whilst at university? I can't imagine still not being able to drive after getting my first job, mainly because being able to drive is often a necessity in commuting.

    Id do it ASAP if you can, you don't want to have to do it at uni and it wont take too long. Book your theory soon as its really easy then start working towards a practical date.
