    OK so I've had the form to get my provisional license for nearly a year now (say nothing!) and am almost there, I just need to pay for it. Anyway, I'm not sure I actually want to drive. I'd have to pass in the next 5months as I'm going away to uni, and even if I pass I won't be able to afford a car. But then my dad is really pressuring me to sart driving soon. I don't know what to do!

    Get the provisional - you will want to learn one day! Aside from that, its a good form of ID!

    You'd have to be retarded to take longer than 5 months to pass, to be fair.

    Be warned-the provisional does expire after a time and you'll have to get a new one.

    I'm in the same position.....I'm going away to uni in September,started my driving lessons and HAVE to pass before I go away basically....I kind of have a car in that my mum will add me to her insurance(although she has a huge people carrier so that's going to cost a bomb)...but I'm really failing to see the point in my learning atm.

    My mum is making me,lol.

    I'd say do it though,you might as well get it out of the way.

    I was insured on my parents people carrier - for some reason people always want you to be the designated driver!

    Lol,did you get pulled over loads by the police?

    I can just see it happening to me...I mean,how many young girls(19 in my case...although apparently I look 17,lol) can afford an expensive people carrier...let alone the insurance for it.

    As it will be over the summer, you may be able to fit in lots of lessons (obviously depends if you work etc, but even then the evenings will be lighter) so you might be able to pass in 5 months. What I did was had my test booked for a few weeks after I started uni, had lessons til I went and then a few more at uni, and then came back and passed.

    Considering it takes over 3 months to wait for a driving test in this area, and the majority of people do not pass first time, are you implying that the majority of adults are retarded? Also you are assuming people book the test after 2 months, in this case that may be fine if you have regular lessons, but not everyone can manage that.

    I took a year. I'm not retarded, I'm just not cocky. It depends on the person. People either take to it and can drive fine after a month or two of lessons, or have to learn slower. That doesn't make me retarded, it just means I'm not a natural.
