Being able to learn to drive was once a milestone of adolescence, a coming-of-age ritual of sorts that denoted not only your own freedom of mobility granted by earning your own mode of transport, but also attaining your own financial freedom by funding your first vehicle.
However it seems things have changed somewhat in more recent years. As little as 29% of teenagers now seem to be pushing to learn to drive, compared to almost 50% twenty years ago. Perhaps the attitude to driving has changed, with more people on the roads now than ever, or perhaps the financial burden of owning your own vehicle is too much for today’s youngsters?
