I didn't need to and also didn't want to. I was happy taking public transport even though I was living in a village. One day I was bored and decided to get some lessons and just after passing I got a job where you can only access by car, result!

Started when I was 17 and passed when I was 17, after only 15 hours of tuition :smile:
I passed as soon as I turned 18. Since then I have forgotten how to drive.
3. Driving on GTA counts right?

Age 2.
17 or 18 cant remember
I started learning at 27 missed 2 years during the covid lockdowns and passed last month at 31 (just turned 31). I wished I did do it at 17 though but I don't think myself I would have been mature enough for it back then.
What age do most people learn?
