    I did 3-4hrs of travelling a day for college. If you've got a book it's not much of a big deal.

    TBH, getting any job in todays economic climate is extremely difficult, as you've experienced. You've got to take what you're offered.

    Take the job earn a months salary then take an intensive driving course, I think you can do them over 2 or 3 weekends?
    Another option which is an extreme but might be worthwhile is moving in to a hostel or a hotel with very low price for long stays whilst you learn how to drive maybe a few lessons a week...

    Plus two hours each way isnt all that bad, if you have to be at work for 9 until 5, you would leave at 7 and be home by 7....
    I travel just over 1 hour now and its not bad at all.

    ... could you buy one of those scooter things? I'm not sure if you need a license, but surely it would be cheaper than the car route for the moment.

    Perhaps put up with the commute until your first pay cheque and then move?
