    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.

    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.
