    I turn 17 in late June and i'm conflicted about whether to learn to drive after my birthday or not.
    My sister didn't learn until after she graduated and it took her a while which put her at a disadvantage when trying to find a job because we don't live in the best area for opportunities.
    But I don't know if I want to learn while doing my A Levels in Year 13 and there is the cost factor also?

    Advice would be helpful !!

    I personally started learning at the beginning of year 13 but I think it would be better to start sooner rather than later, because you don't want to have to worry about taking driving tests while you're doing your A2 exams. I would start looking for instructors early as well, because you may have to wait a while before reputable driving instructors have space on their schedule for you.
