I recently passed my test at quite a late age, and to my disappointment it is not the lessiure activity that had been sold to me. I thought once I got in a car on my own it would be fun and enjoyable but it is not, its boring as hell to the point I'm thinking of buying another motorbike, at least I could cut through traffic on it. I just don't get the thrill of it all. And even though its boring it is also stressful.

I absolutely love pelting it down the motorway in my car.

Only when it's an open road and you can speed... otherwise it's just another chore and necessity.

I love driving as part of a holiday, not commuting.

Yes, if it's for leisure only.

Is it a necessity though? I heard that if you live in London, not having a car is no big deal as public transport options are many, and runs like clockwork

I can only imagine it being fun on a race track or something, not City driving..

For the outskirts, it's still easier with a car.

But for the majority of Zone 1-3, you're right the abundance and (relatively) cheap public transport means you don't really need a car.

I doubt many people do leisurely city driving. I personally refer to long road trips on the motorway and long distance single / dual carriageways as my driving fun.

No.
Blasted potholes.
Lots of professional car accident compensation scammers trying to steal away my no claims bonus too.

Not all of us live in London...

To answer your original question, I do at times but at others it's boring. Not all drives are enjoyable. Using it to drive to A to B in traffic isn't fun. Going on an aimless cruise around on a summer's evening is highly enjoyable.

No. It's incredibly stressful and pedantic. I still haven't passed alongside five instructors: two of who booted me off of semi intensive courses (one for passivity and another for road rage). Plus there's an issue of being huge and trying to cram into the little 1.0l cars that instructors have and I'm hunched over the wheel half of the time. I preferred riding on a 125cc myself. Much easier to see things and get out of dodge earlier.

Yes if it's on holiday and somewhere sunny and country-ish / sea-sidey. Driving in London is awful and getting worse, not just the congestion but also the frightening, stupid behaviour of other drivers.

I had a 125cc and tbh I'm thinking of just driving in winter and getting a 125cc for the summer, I felt invincible on that thing.
