I'm in my early 20s, been driving for a few months now and I find it tedious as ****. Lessons were fun and the first few drives on my own were exciting, but the novelty wore of very quickly.
I've been driving a year and I still like it. Don't really like driving in unfamiliar areas but I enjoy the buzz of driving in rush hour, dodging bad drivers and getting onto a clear road after you've been stuck in traffic. Sounds odd aha.
Depends what you're doing...
Sitting @ 70-80mph on a motorway for mile after mile is incredibly boring.
However, if you happen to be taking the scening route and giving it large between corners - well, that's a bit different.
Having said that, you don't always want to be driving at 100% and having a car that you have to really "drive" isn't always what you want. Doing motorway speeds in something that rides quite harshly isn't a particularly nice experience. Similarly, trying to press on down a B road in something big and comfy is just like being in a boat when the swell is quite large.
Wait 'til you've got two or three cars. Chances are you're the sort of person that might enjoy track days and sprint / hill climb events.
I've had my license for a month and a half.. I love driving my car around. Being able to get from A to B independently is good in itself, but fundamentally I find driving really fun..
I enjoy driving because I enjoy cars. I've been driving for just over 2 years and don't find it boring at all. At the same time I don't get into my car and wet my pants a little bit with excitement.
I drive to work, I drive to friends, I regularly go on the motorway. Sounds more like you're just enjoying being an 'adult' than driving.
Plus there's two kind of people, ones who use their cars to get from A to B and ones who use their cars because they love cars. Your mum is clearly in the first category.
The only thing I don't like about driving is sharing the roads with people who can't ****ing drive!!
People who "enter their automobile" and haul it from A to B at precisely 28.5 MPH... usually young girls and old people.

No wonder they get bored...
I jockey around almost every corner, 1 series is perfect for it, and nothing beats doing 120 down the M60 at 3 in the morning with no traffic blasting chillstep dreams vol.3
I have a motorcycle and have been riding a large bike for several years. I have to admit that I am getting fed up of biking to be honest. It seems there are too many drivers that think the speed limit is the edge of the earth, and I have to suffer due to the lack of opportunity to overtake. Today was a classic case in point, I overtook a car in a built up area (somethin I never do) without exceeding the speed limit. Theres also the caravans, tractors and other large and slow vehicles on the road. When ever im out on my bike I spend the vast majority of the time waiting for an opportunity to pass slower traffic. This is annoying as hell. On top of all this you get the erratic or dangerous drivers aswell as unpredictable animals or people that can interfere with a ride.
i am a rider too and i must say that i get a rush everytime i take it out.... never ceases to amaze me how happy riding makes me. hell i get a small rush driving home in my car when i know im going to go out riding
