Recent research amongst 17-25 year olds found that learning to drive was perceived as better value for money than getting a degree.

More than 30% of respondents said learning to drive offered the best value for money, with around 25% saying a deposit for a house was important and 18% who opted for a degree. Buying a car, travelling and being fashionable were also important.

Could the younger generation be right? With university fees sky high and the housing market so unstable, learning to drive could be seen as the best value for money. It could in turn increase job opportunities, as holding a driving licence is often required, it also allows individuals freedom and independence.
