    Yeah it sucks, I can't afford (nor have the time) to learn how to drive at the moment either. But I know that not having a full driving license is going to affect a lot of jobs in the future.

    I don't plan to get a car though, most of the ones I've looked at require you to drive as they may provide you with a car if necessary, the ones where you need your own car are less so and not so much in jobs I'd want anyway. No way I'm wasting thousands on a car I don't even want.
    yeah, It's such a frustrating catch-22... basically I need to earn more to learn to drive but I need to learn to drive to earn more... I'm not even bothered on a personal level, I'm a cyclist and I'm happy to take my road bike most places and train on the few occasions that won't work, but being stuck career wise sucks

    Some people do need it, others need it at some point in their life (like if you are working in a factory from 6am and there are no buses there) and most people probably don't need it at all. Personally, I don't have a car and I can't see how I would ever need it. It just seems like a lot of money out the window... just take the bus or train or cycle, man.

    I generally walk places. Or get the bus.
