    Sounds like it's doing you good, don't bother driving. Especially with costs etc at the moment meaning driving is increasingly more expensive.

    stick with the bike:thumbsup: ive got a car, a little spare tyre i could lose and no money:oops:

    get a ped, my bro did a whole set up for a year is less than a grand

    I used to bike everywhere!!! used to hate it sometimes in the winter, so passed my test and got a car and remember saying to myself.."I will only use it in the winter and for going on long journeys" this was 7 years ago and have now lost my six pack and fit body! I have just started biking to work and so wish I never gave up he cycling!!!!

    maybe not barry lol

    If you are young free and single... (ie: no financial ties!) I would do it now!!! You dont have to use the car! But getting the it now means you have it for the future!!!
    ( I waited 4 years between passing my test, and actually being able to afford a car!!!) :-(
    Kids!!! :-D

    learn to drive while you are young (if you are young) but dont get a car yet

    Once you have kids... the 'not much spare cash' turns into NO spare cash!!!
    Do it now!!!

    keep your bike - car is too expensive to keep and run never mind lessons etc

    learn to drive now you may regret it in later years, you dont even need to get a car just have passed the test.

    Can i ask what kind of bike you have?

    Want to get one for work travelling to work but not sure of a kind yet

    come towards the light, leave them sub human cyclists :whistling:


    ....you do realise that car drivers have to stop at junctions etc

    Those boring two and a half years are being added on to your life later on. Your fitness regime will keep you fit and healthy even when you are in a nursing home filling your nappies and blowing spit bubbles. then again you could be knocked down by a car tomrrow SPLAT!!!!

    Only joking fitness first and you will have a long healthy life.

    exercise is good yeh... but being able to drive is a good bonus these days..(apart from costs of fuel atm)
    i passed my test soon as i could start learning, but unfortunatly dont have a car atm and its grr as i cant get anywhere!

    my bike is a nice cheapy from price drop £56 quid gola .........price drop ......

    If you've not got much spare cash then the decision has pretty much been made for you already, driving lessons and tests are pricey then buying and running a car even more so.

    And the price of lessons and test are not going to come down are they.
    Do it now 'cos it aint going to get any cheaper.

    It's like the cost of houses. The longer you leave it, the harder it will be to get on board.

    If you don't do it now, you will really struggle to do it in the future.
    GO FOR IT NOW. :thumbsup:

    Take your test and abort. Worth having the 'ability' for future job prospects. It must run in the family as I can't be bothered with the expense, neither can my sister (25) or brother (21).

    I absolutely love cars though!

    ... I'm 26 btw.


    Edit: Seriously, take the test and pass. I wish I had it, even though I don't need a car.

    Bikes good and healthy.....but it's not the sort of thing you can take your girlfriend out on, or get your weekly shopping on, or visit family and friends far away or even get ur partner to the hospital on quickly when she's in labour!! If u know what I mean. Being able to drive is very important I think, even if you don't use it - u always have the option -Take ur test!

    Worth passing your test yes, but quite frankly you've got a good thing going with biking to/from work - don't give that up!
