I’m very excited to be starting my first driving lesson on the road to getting a full driving licence. I’ve been however forced to do it as quickly as possible for a special reason that I hope to announce in the future, but suffice to say, I need a driving licence.
For years, I’ve never needed to have a driving licence. Living in the inner most part of London, the transport and cost options within London are second to none. So much so I haven’t had much of an incentive to get a driving licence. But more recently it became clear that at some point to further my career and job opportunities, I really need a driving licence at the very least.
So for years I have been slowly saving up for a driving licence and now I am at the stage where I will need to just spend that money. In fact as it turns out, I’ve over saved dramatically and looking at my options, I could in theory get a driving licence with all the training materials, test costs and schooling costs and have left over money for the potential for a car.
I mainly would want to have a licence for a job, but I would highly consider the idea of getting a car just for volunteering at either Brooklands Museum or more probably at the Imperial War Museum: Duxford site. The advantage of this approach is that after a driving test pass, I could get a car and use the volunteering to further diversify my time away from work but also gain more driving experience. In other words, its a win-win situation.
I hope that I can get a licence relatively soon as possible, but I know it will take time and hard work to just get that massive achievement, but also it would be fantastic to say to an employer that I have taken the time, money and effort to make it work.
