    Nope, I couldn't afford to learn to drive till I was 19 and didn't pass my test untill just before I turned 20. So not too long ago, I know how you feel I was the only one of y male friends who didn't drive but I just didn't let it bther me, I just couldn't afford it. My boyfriend who is 28 doesn't drive and probably never will and it dosn't affect his life in the slightest, he says 'I don't miss something I never had'. If it really bothers you that much, do something about it like I did but I do think it sn't something you or anyone should judge yourself by.

    no, people may assume you just don't want to because of the green agenda

    Its just circumstances sometimes, nothing weird about it!

    Most people I know learned to drive once they left uni (21/22 year old). The only people that I know that learned to drive earlier than say, 20, are those who live outside London/Greater London area, due to transport issues.

    I can't drive either and I'm 21. Most of my friends do have a licence, but I don't see the appeal in paying a fortune for the lessons, then paying a fortune to buy a car, then paying a fortune for petrol, parking, costs, etc etc... It's just a constant outflow of money which I don't have. I'll stick with walking and the bus for the time being.

    people who drive cars are environmental terrorists
    And this is coming from someone who wouldn't dare walk 100 miles but would take a car, coach or bus. Let's see you walk all that way instead of taking a vehicle and then you can run your mouth.

    To be honest, for guys, insurance has crazily high premiums, at younger ages, compared to girls, so at 20, i'm sure there are many guys wont be driving due to financial reasons, there's nothing weird about it, its perfectly understandable
    Actually, the EU court reached a verdict this month that not having the same premiums is gender discrimination in Europe, so girls will have to pay the same premiums.

    I'm 27 and don't. Even if I did, I couldn't afford a car.
    Seriously, it doesn't matter, there are way more important things in life.
