    For various reasons(most importantly that I can get a substantial sum of money from work towards it) I'm interested in doing lessons/test now, however I wouldn't be driving until after I graduate. Is this a good or bad idea. Did any of you have a long period between test and driving? Wouldn't I forget how?

    I drove 3 years after passing due to not being able to afford the insurance. Its like riding a bike, once you learn, you never forget.

    Good idea, your premiums will be cheaper if you passed a while ago, even if you haven't had insurance.

    Some people DO forget, but that might just mean a few refresher lessons, won't have to start from scratch again.

    Yeah its better to learn now when you have time, you wont have much time when you graduate, and start looking for a job.

    yes it's a good idea. get your licence, and in a few years when you get your own car insurance will be cheaper because they think you would have been driving in that time. Your premium will drop quite a bit 1 year after having a licence, even if you haven't even driven alone. Also it is likely to be cheaper now to learn to drive than it will in a few years time due to government and green environmentalist involvement in the world.
