    If you can't or don't drive is it possible to get a job in social work and be able to get to your placements on time without relying on taxis? I was considering going into social work and then it dawned on me that I can't and probably will never drive due to disability stuff.

    My friend managed to complete her social work training without a car. It was difficult but the university were quite accommodating. I can't speak for after as she passed her test just after her final assessments.

    I'm a social worker and don't drive. I've managed to get a job and complete that job without one perfectly.

    There's loads of hospital jobs that don't require a car too
