I’m from NYC and we have the metro, which I don’t even use because I walk to work everyday. No one in my family has ever owned a car. Is anyone else like this?

I got a learners permit a few years ago because I needed a state ID. I began learning to drive earlier this year and I suck majorly. I can’t handle the wheel without feeling like I’m holding an alien object. My steering sucks, my turns suck, my breaking sucks, I’m forgetful and I keep missing things. I might as well be blind.

All the money I’m putting into this feel like it’s just going to waste because I don’t see myself driving regularly.

I wasn't allowed to have a permit or license until my mom separated from my father (a few months before I turned 17), and then I never got a license because it wasn't a necessity to get one. (Worked locally until I turned 21, joined the military and was stationed at FTCKY where my place of duty was a .8 mile walk from my barracks).

Now, I know how to drive; I just don't have a license. I do have a military license to operate HMMWV's. When I get back from deployment, I will be looking to get a car though. Alongside of a license.

26 years-old, and I don't, either. Well, I don't have a license. The main things stopping me are stage fright and trouble with parallel-parking... Parallel-parking cars and trucks, that is. I can operate and parallel-park boom, scissor, and fork lifts. It's kind of funny, really.

I would never drive a car in my life for the following reasons
-I want to act ecologically.
-Cars and their maintaince are very expensive and it is not worth.
-I can see by my left eye only, but my right eye has no sight.
-I act in a secure way, usually.

Just because you have a license..... it does not do justice for many -_-

But i have a full G license, and i renew every 5 years, so the government can kindly leave me alone, im not taking your stupid driving exam when i only use half of the suggested course of action.

You see an emergency vehicle approaching with flashing lights, you pull over to the side, use your signals, right of way, and always keep right to faster moving traffic, and only make a complete stop at stop signs when police are nearby

Its not hard, but people find ways..... people find ways to make it hard

sick rhyme

driving is pretty easy. it gets a bit annoying when you have to drive your vehicle through piles of dead bodies and it struggles to do it. all the blood on the windshield really makes things tricky too. the damage to the body isnt very desirable either

With the way I see people driving these days, makes me wonder how they got a drivers license.

Some examples of what I see.

1. I'm traveling at 10 over the speed limit. 55 MPH going at 65 MPH. Have people zig zagging thru traffic or just sitting a few feet off your rear bumper.

2. There won't be anyone behind me for a couple of hundred feet, but will have someone drive past and then pull in between me and the car I am behind. I usually follow at about 2 to 3 seconds behind.

3. Cars that have tail lights, brake lights and head lights burnt out.

4. People on their cell's and not fully paying attention to what's going on, on the road.

Driving is actually quite easy, I just want everyone to do it safely.

so much this. in the freeway, where people typically drive at 70-80 mph, its not unusual to see an impatient person driving at 95-100+ mph and tailgating everyone, making sudden lane changes without any warning and almost hitting other cars in the process.

I don't drive. I don't have my license. I know how to drive and even went through a driver's training program when I was in high school. I don't drive for many reasons, but the biggest is fear. Not a fear of getting hurt in an accident like some might think, but hurting others. I don't think I could take it if I crippled and/or killed someone.

It might be a problem if/when you leave the city, but for everyday life, the subway is fine. It's far less expensive, saves you money, and you don't have to worry about traffic jams.

in the city, there is still the option of getting uber or lyft, and it might actually be cheaper than buying your own car, paying for gas and insurance.

➤ I am twenty-nine years of age and I have yet to learn to drive. As much as I did ask to learn to drive in my younger days, I was not given the help that I desired. I hope you are able to improve on your driving skills to where you are comfortable, self-motivation can assist you if this advice helps.


➤ With the combination of nightmares, mental, emotional and spiritual stress I am currently going through after the incidents beginning in 2013, I chose to end the goal to acquire my license. What reason would I foolishly pursue my dreams when I have only encountered adversary and obstacles against me since my child years? I did applaud myself that I did attempt to try to receive my driver's license this year by using a portion of my savings, but chose to end permanently.

It really depends on where you live. My college roommate is 38 and still has never had a drivers license. But he lives in MYC and really doesn't need one.

I visit Tokyo often and couldn't imagine driving there. The trains work so damn good. Unless you're a taxi service or a delivery person why would you even want to drive?

I wish we had good public transportation in South Florida. So I've been driving as soon as I could legally get behind a wheel at 16. But I hate driving down here. We have the worst drivers.
