*5 Reasons I Should Learn To Drive.

source : Pinterest

It's the summer and with the weather being so great recently it's the perfect opportunity to jump into our cars, roll down our windows, hit that summer playlist and make those unforgettable memories with our loved ones as well as discovering new places.

I need to learn to drive. 

This has genuinely been one of my goals for years, but it's something I am keen to get done in the next 12 months AND I would certainly encourage young people to take up the opportunity of doing, especially over the summer months.

I think the positives it gives you do outweigh the negatives of the costs. There are a lot of financial restrictions which I believe is what stops young people from getting behind the wheel.

But hopefully with today's post in collaboration with booklearnpass.co.uk I would like to chat about the 5 reasons I should learn to drive in the hope it'll encourage more young people in learning to drive this summer.

001. Learning a new skill
The biggest thing about driving is that it definitely enables you to learn a new skill. It enables you to challenge yourself to learn skills that only driving a car provides you with. It definitely builds on your skill to focus for a long period of time and have eyes in the back of your head too! For me individually the thought of driving on motorways and roundabouts scares me so learning to drive will hopefully me more at ease.

002. It benefits your CV
The amount of jobs I have applied for in the past that have had the requirement of a driving license has been crazy! Obviously specific job roles do need your license on hand to be able to fulfil it's requirements but then I agree that this shouldn't be the one thing holding you back too. I do believe it'll open my employment options by driving.

003. Amazing road trips are there to be done!
I'd love to drive JUST for this reason. Imagine spending your weekends being spontaneous and jumping into your car with all of your friends and exploring cities around the country or just going to see those friends you haven't seen in months. Imagine when it's sunny weather and you can just jump into your car and head off to the nearest beach too!

Also my boyfriend isn't a fan of heading out at stupid am for a McDonalds cheeserburger or McFlurry so if I have my own car, my own rules right? ;)

004. You can purchase a pretty car.
I know tons of friends who loved driving so much that they saved up their money to buy a car they wanted. I would love to save up and purchase my own little Green Mini Cooper to drive around in (that's the dream anyway!)

005. It's Commitment.
But obviously having a car and being able to drive is a great opportunity to commit yourself to something and to a new challenge. It's the perfect first commitment for a young person to undertake and one that will have heaps and heaps of rewards that come with it too!

If your looking for a website that will help you learn to drive, practice your theory and book driving lessons in your local area than BookLearnPass is the website you need to check out. They are encouraging more young people to learn to drive this summer, you can head over to their website to learn more.

  1. I actually learned to drive and passed my test over five years ago - but have only driven a handful of times since! I started getting really anxious about it and then it wasn't fun so I stopped. Now that I'm a bit older I'm wishing I'd kept it up - I'm going to have to find time for a bit of relearning and refreshing my memory, but it's on my to-do list!

    1. Sorry to hear that you became anxious about driving, I know a few people that have also felt like this too! I hope that you are able to give it another go after some refreshing of the skills and feel more comfortable with doing it.

  2. Good luck with your lessons!
    Being able to drive is super beneficial and a skill most people should have, I think. That being said I haven't driven since I got my license three years ago and even then I hated it and was super nervous all the time. But I'd like to take some lessons again and try to be more confident on the road, especially for those road trips!

  5. I'm really quiet nervous when it comes to the thought of driving, I've put it off for so long that I don't think I could do it now! I definitely needed to read that someone else has similar thoughts to me too..Maybe one day I'll finally get the guts to book that first lesson!

    1. Yeah I think it's normal to get nervous about driving especially when you've put off doing it for quite a long time. I hope you'll get the guts one day as I am sure it'll give you tons of benefits!

  8. I really wish I was one of those kids that got bought lessons for their 17th birthday... My parents never overly encouraged me to get lessons so it kind of got forgotten about. I did start learning one summer and I've wanted finish the rest of my lessons for years, but it's the cost that's always put me off. I'd love to have a bit more freedom and not have to worry about trains!
