Is it too late?

16 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So, I'm going to turn 19 this February. Even though I'm over the age of 16, I finally have a late interest in driving. Is it too late for me to learn how to drive? I really want to learn now, and I didn't think about it when I was 16. I'm getting tired of being driven around. Can you pray that I can have courage to practice driving? My main concern is, the people at the driving tests will probably think I'm weird for taking a driving test at 19 years old. I figured it's time to learn.

Thoughts?

LOL! I didn't drive until I was 23, and I was just as nervous as you are. Many women don't drive early...I have a sister in law that is 30 and still doesn't drive. You go girl, 19 is a great age to start...and it really isn't as hard as it looks.

Really? That makes me feel better going into it at this age now. Thanks :)

Good :) The only reason I did do it was because my husband forced me to...he wanted me to be more independant. If it weren't for him I don't know if I would have until much later. You can do it!

No, it's never too late to learn how to drive.

Drivers Ed. instructors are used to all types, so there's no need to be concerned about their perception of you. They know the nervousness of people behind the wheel.

well i sat for my test to get my licence at the age off 44 so its never to late to learn to drive i am 45 yrs old i should have gotten my licence when i was young but got so use to public transport saves paying car insurance petrol and so on i learnt to drive from a young age growing up on a farm helps as you can not get into trouble driving on your own property

i sat for my manual licence that way you get to drive an automatic my driving instructor who was German was shocked so don"t ever say is it to late all due to how old you are

I'm another who didn't learn to drive till I was 23. I didn't feel ready to handle the responsibility until then, and I figured if I didn't think I should be driving, the state of Kentucky probably didn't want me behind the wheel either. :whistling:

On the other hand, once I was ready, I found it wasn't that hard to learn and I passed both tests fairly easily. And as soon as I had my license, my mom took the shotgun seat and told me now it was my turn to chauffeur her around! ;)

I also was just 23 when I got my driver's license, even though I had a learner's permit at 16 or 17. It was being married and having to get around town adn to work easier that I felt it was time.

I figure the older a person is, the more mature he or she may be---and that can only be a good thing.

Nodody is going to think anything about your age, and so what if they do? You can't let that kind of fear stop you. You will do just fine, and since you are a little older, you will be more mature and ready to take the responsibility serious. Go for it.

Your not alone in just learning to drive. Lots of people much older are also learning to drive for the first time too. Its nice to be able to take yourself someplace when you want to and not have to wait for someone else to drive you somewhere.

Dont understand the worry about the age ... here in the Uk you have to be 17 to start to learn and they dont teach it at school so loads and loads of people are much older before they even think of driving . My mother was in her 40's before she learned I was 30 and had 4 children before it became necessary for me to learn to drive .... If you worry about what other people wil think of you you will never do anything in life :emot-shakehead:
