    Saving for driving lessons 4th Aug 17 at 9:57 AM
    I'm 32 next year and I can't drive! I'm so desperate to learn now I live somewhere a bit rural so the saving has begun. I only have £35 so far but hoping to have £400 by January so I can book in a block of lessons

    Hi there linzeeloulabelle driving lessons are so expensive aren't they, but worth every penny when you are able to get around in your own car, especially if you live in a rural area with not very good public transport. Good luck with your savings

    hi and welcome linzeeloulabelle and good luck with driving lessons. They are expensive but a great investment. I would love to learn to drive but am too much of a chicken. Well done on deciding to save for this!

    Hello and good luck with your fund raising. Join some local selling site, look for 'selling sites on and around xxxx' join the ones with most members . Much better than ebay, instant cash and no posting etc. Keep in touch

    Learning to drive was the best yhing i ever did,

    If you have any relatives/friends that could drive they could possibly teach you on how to drive, for a discounted price or even free.

    Requirements
    • A Registered road worthy vehicle.
    • Provisional insurance on the vehicle.
    • 2x L plates
    • Time & patience.

    Hope this helps

    If you learn with family or friends there are also some age requirements
