Today I’m talking about something completely new to the blog, learning to drive.
Learning to drive is a thing that most of us do without a second thought and is usually a really enjoyable part of getting your independence as a young adult. For me though, like many others, it’s been a different story. I’ve had a handful of driving lessons over the years but have still never got round to taking the test.
I’m sure many of you may wonder why and there are a few good reasons. Around the age most people start to take their lessons, I decided I wanted to travel and see the world, and of course, I didn’t need a car to do this! when I returned to the UK some years later, I lived in the city and really had no need to run a car, so again it was put off for some years.
It’s only when I moved out of the city and into the countryside that the need to drive became more of a necessity. I took some more lessons again but believe me, it’s so much harder as you get older! I didn’t have the time nor patience due to being so busy with the children and work that I decided to put it off once again.
I’m in a position again where I’m a lot more settled professionally and personally and feel it’s absolutely the right time to get this done once and for all!
Now I have set myself a goal to get driving. I am going to be working on some understandable anxiousness and get behind the wheel. Booking driving lessons now compared to all those years ago is so much easier. There are many online companies that offer information and support when learning to drive. You can find information on theory test and book a lesson with an instructor near you.
So hopefully next time I write about driving on my blog it will be to let you know that I have finally took the plunge and learned to drive!
