In the modern day, where public transport is available to everyone at a reasonable cost. People often debate whether or not it is worth learning to drive. 

This is generally due to the high costs involved, for both driving lessons and the tests involved. And of course, there’s the cost of a car.

But today, we are going to give you a plethora of reasons why it is worth learning to drive!


First and foremost is the freedom provided by being able to drive. You can go anywhere you want, whenever you want. 

Whilst this is possible without a car, you are often limited to a certain range, as some places will take too long to get to get to without a car.

It also means that you no longer have to rely on anyone else, because you can travel independently.

New Job Opportunities 

In the modern day, often a requirement for jobs is that they want you to be able to drive.

So it goes without saying that if you can drive, that is another factor that can make you a favourable choice over other candidates that have applied for the job.

In addition to being a requirement for jobs, it can also allow you to expand your horizons in terms of the location. Perhaps the niche that you want to work in is not available in your local area, once you can drive, you can then get a job as far a distance as you want.

This means that you have the potential to apply for more jobs, and are therefore more likely to get one.

Time Management

When it comes to effective time management, being able to drive is a huge benefit. 

This is because you are no longer restricted by the timetable of public transport, which is not always reliable, anyway. 

Furthermore, you won’t have to rely on friends and family for trips to places or quick jobs such as popping to the shop. Instead, you can go when it suits you.


Similarly to the previous point, simple jobs such as shopping can be made far easier when you have a car. Particularly if you rely on public transport for your shopping trips.

Obviously, by having a car, you can then store your shopping in the car, which means you don’t have to carry it all at once.

Whereas if you were to use public transport, not only would you be limited to what you can carry, but also the space provided from said transport is not going to be near that of a car.

Furthermore, having a car can also be a great benefit to those looking to move furniture. Whether you are a student, or perhaps you are moving house; whatever the case, having a car will allow you to move the furniture yourself.

This means you will save money as you don’t need to hire a company to do the moving for you!

Not only that, but you can also hire a van. This provides more space than cars, and also will be cheaper than hiring a team to move the furniture for you.

Which is another win win!


Last but certainly not least we have holidays. Everyone loves holidays, but they can be a lot of hassle if you have to take transport such as trains and buses.

With all the stops involved and having to move around luggage from place to place, it can add unnecessary levels of stress.

All of this stress can be removed simply if you have a car. Not only can you pack much more, but you also only have to worry about storing the luggage at the start, and removing it at the end.

Even if you do want to stop, you can leave your luggage safe in your car, knowing that it won’t drive away without you!

Plus, with your own car, you can go whenever you wish! Perhaps you fancy nipping down to the coast for the weekend, not a problem.

Now you’ve finished reading this post, go and book yourself a driving lesson, and get that driving license you deserve!
