    How to learn to drive - CHEAPLY!

    How to learn to drive - CHEAPLY! 24th Mar 09 at 9:09 PM

    I just sent off for my provisional and I really want to learn to drive at the moment. I think it'll make my life a LOT easier and will save me a lot of cash in the long run (yes! I know that sounds mad!)

    So I was wondering if there was a way of learning to drive, to pass my test, cheaply. I've been looking at a lot of different driving schools and there are some good offers (First lesson free, 10 first lesson, discounts for block bookings etc).

    Also I was wondering if I saved up and got an old banger (less than 500) and did private practice in it would it be worthwhile? My brother-in-law knows cars and can fix most problems with any and with my dad on the insurance (and as I'm a bit older) I can get a good quote of around 500 per annum and my dad has offered to pay half.

    Thanks guys!
