    Okay so I'm currently debating whether to learn to drive, but as I live and work in London I won't be getting a car due to the cost & lack of necessity.

    Realistically, I wouldn't probably leave London for at least 5 years, so is there any point me learning to drive if I don't drive consistently for several more years?

    It's good to know how to drive. But 5 years is a long time and you don't want to be forgetting important things. I would say about a year before you are about to leave learn to drive. That way you can give yourself plenty of time to learn and pass. Then you should have a little time left to save up for a car.

    It gets harder to learn new skills as you get older.

    Besides, you can rent a car or a van if you ever need to at some point in the future.

    I've learnt now even though I won't be getting a car until after Uni, at the moment I have quite a lot of disposable income because I have a job without any bills, once you've got your licence you have it, that's it, there's nothing wrong with having a couple of refresher lessons just before getting your own car, but my logic was it saves having to do it under time and money pressures
