So with yet another driving thread emerging i have decided upon putting up this poll which will finally solve the mystery of how many people here drive.

Please answer truthfully.


I am 27 and I have never driven in my entire life. Nor do I want to. I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT SIDE THE STOP PEDAL IS ON.

Seriously, it looks TERRIFYING. And there are SO many aggressive drivers out there. Not to mention you can die or kill someone. Cannot be taking that risk. Just going out for a few hours gives me anxiety. Plus there are way too many cars these days. Pollution, etc.

I don't drive and it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

I am driven.

I drive and have my own car. It's not with me at uni ATM (but I'm taking it next year) but at home I need a car to pretty much get anywhere- especially work!

I absolutely love driving, honestly nothing better than driving fast with loud music *.*

I can, but I don't.
Passed my test nearly ten years ago and haven't driven at all for the last five or six. I don't need to at all at the moment and can't see that changing any time soon really! I used to enjoy driving through the countryside late at night with music on 😍 But it was so long ago, I'm not sure if I'd like it at all these days 💁🏼‍♂️

Alll about walking and cycling for me.

I drive regularly. I'm quite lucky because even though I do have to drive to get to work or see my immediate family, none of that is more than a 15 minute drive away. The longest drive I have to do is to my grandparents who are about an hour away.

No, probably should and kind of want to but I'm the same Pav I find it so scary to think of like all the other drivers or that you could like kill someone or crash really easily, I know that's probably just because I've never driven and it would be fine if I did lmao but I'm ok for now. It's quite annoying having to pay for a slow af bus journey to do like day to day things so I wouldn't want to forever drama.gif

No and I have no desire to learn. Living in London with a large transport system (that I don't have to pay to use thanks to working for them), why would I need to (or WANT to considering some of the roads and traffic in the city).

I'm sure it would be fine once you get used to it but the idea of starting to learn for the first time does scare me a little too tbh :')

To be honest, you're more likely to be a safer driver if you do get concerned about things like crashes. It'll make you concentrate on what you're doing and the worries will eventually pass the more you go out in the car and your confidence will rise. Drivers that are cocky from the outset are much more dangerous imo.

It's not just the crashes thing. I just KNOW i won't be able to handle a difficult situation and go straight to panic mode if something happens and needs my immediate decision. So it's better for everyone i don't get behind the wheel at all lmao

No, I have dyspraxia which although doesn't rule out driving, does make it much harder, but as I do enjoy walking and don't mind public transport so I don't particularly want to.

Again, it's something that you will gain in time. I didn't have a clue what I was doing before I started learning. You are also completely safe if learning with an instructor-they won't let anything happen and can advise you in difficult circumstances. Lessons are expensive but the more experience you have under your belt before you take a test, the better.

Regular driver especially for work and my hobby of visiting historical churches. Not all the places I wish to visit are on a public transport route.

It's something I always think I should do, but I don't have the money or time for it atm and I live in London so I'm fairly well covered on the transport aspect. Like some others in here, I'm overly safety cautious (I'm always the slowest whenever I go go-karting with people lol) and am panicky about being on the road and in a potentially life threatening situation. I also have dyspraxia and autism so have poor coordination skills to back that up, it didn't really work out the last time I had a few lessons and it was costing me too much so am in no hurry to try again.

this is all literally me. I have my own car but it stays at home since I have no real need for it in edinburgh. I'm actually getting a new car towards the end of summer as I'm moving home so I will need to drive through to edinburgh for uni, which im actually really looking forward to tbh because I really like driving, there's so much freedom to it and like lotti said driving with loud music is the best thing ever, especially when it's sunny and you can put the windows down and just chill, it's honestly the best feeling!! I can understand why some people might find it scary though because the whole concept is a bit dangerous but I think once you start driving it will seem much less frightening and more just something that gets you A to B faster and more conveniently than public transport laugh.gif

I love driving and very comfortable with it now. The only thing I've refused to do so far is a really long motorway journey, the longest I've done is 2 hours. I got my first car only this time last year but I can't imagine not having it now.

It completely changed everything and I've gotten really lazy with walking etc. But I love the independence of not having to rely on someone for a lift or public transport (ew) and there's nothing better than having a lil drive while blasting your favourite song <3
