Why do some people get cars as a given? watch


    My parents used to but I've got a job now so fund lessons/tests myself now. Car & insurance they said they'd help me with, tbh they were the ones who really pushed me into learning how to drive instead of myself.

    that's very responsible and noble...
    good for you :yy:
    I've always been a bit independant, I HATE feeling like I'm relying on someone so as soon as I could afford to have my mum stop paying my way, I did :lol:

    My parents saved money since I was a baby either to pay for an 18th birthday party or driving lessons. At 17 I started driving lessons and the money covered the tests. When I passed my test I paid for my own car, insurance, mot etc and intend to continue. I know what you mean by this sense of entitlement, a few of my friends expected all of these things to be paid for them but they came from families whose parents could afford to do so.
