20-something and no driver 's license:

Who can say this and not cry?
I have to admit that I am 20 something and still don't have my license. I did have my permit when I was younger but never took the driving test. In a couple of weeks I am going to take the test. Does anyone know someone that doesn't have their license about 20 something?

I can't be the only one. Come on.

not a big deal. a lot of people i know in the city don't have their license because they've never needed one. i guess once they move out into the country (aka: suburbs), they'll probably get one.

It not a big deal, but at some point the pressure is on to at least get your own transporation. I am lucky to live a city with a good bus and subway system, but when I visit my parents the bus system is bad. Not bad, just sad.

Hey don't worry about it.

I didn't get a driver's license until I was 31.

But that didn't stop me from driving though, haha.

But hey, somebody had to operate the bus and get those kids to school.

I'm 20, and I have never driven before. I won't actually touch the driver's wheel, and learn how to drive, until next month. I've had a lot of stuff happen with the last 5-6 years of my life to where I haven't really thought about driving, until now. Good luck on your test.

I think it depends on where you live. Living in a large metropolitan city with good mass transit or highly congested streets like NYC, I figure most people don't have a license/car.

But living in a sprawled area like most of Southern California on the coast, that would have a greater affect on one's life. To get to work/school, go to the store, etc...need a car.

I got my permit when I was 16 and didn't really get my license till 26. (Then got my 1st car when I was 28.) You can't be later than that.

i think the 'pressure is on' only if you don't plan on living in a major urban area with a developed mass transit system. the only people driving cars around here are cabbies, tourists, and chauffers ;)

i'm 22 and don't have it.

i think my mom got her's when she was 25...i don't remember.

my neighbor doesn't have one & she's in her 40s or 50s. she just gets her husband to drive her around.

having one would be nice i guess, but i don't have a car so it'd be useless...

i'm 21 and i don't have one. I got into a serious car accident when i was training (I was 18). so, i've been kinda scarred ever since. I am planning to get a license this summer though. :)

I don't have a license, only a permit. Oh and I'm 21. I know how to drive a little bit here and there but I suck at it! I already crashed the side of my dad's van, breaking the window. I accidently drove onto my front yard crushing the sprinklers, and almost crashing into my house if I didn't turn the car off. Also, I almost crashed into my dad's brand new car the first day he got it. :-/

I'm going to take my driving test in 2 weeks so I guess I gotta really start practicing again. I'm tired of asking people for rides and I gotta get over my fear & practice more and more. Good luck with your test by the way.
