I Cant Drive

    I'm 27 years old and I still don't have my

    drivers license. It's very embarrassing for me. I've taken the drivers ed course once before but I don't feel my parking or driving skills are up to par to pace the road test. This has caused an extreme amount of anxiety and pressure on me. My boyfriend don't feel good about...

    Awkward situation! Me

    and my boyfriend were friends before we got together, he assumed I could drive and I felt too embarrassed to tell him I can't. I didn't see this as a big deal, I knew eventually I'd pass and he wouldn't care. We were just mates anyway, no big deal! Since then we've got together...

    Still Can't

    I'm 17 years old and I still have not ever driven a car. I don't have a permit or anything. The only thing I've ever driven is a go kart. Only reasons I don't drive: Can't afford insurrance or lessons... or a car, lol. So yeah, really not much hope for me learning to drive...

    This is one of those things

    that makes me laugh and cry, one after the other, or simply together. But always, I have a sense of embarrassment, shame, and failure that I am 23 and cannot drive. What makes it worse is that I have no reason other than I never had much driving experience, which, ironically...

    I'm not allowed to drive.

    It's quite disheartening, at times, because everyone else is getting their driver's licenses, but I cannot. Sadly, I'm legally blind, and it's not correctable by glasses. So, I am not able to drive. I took driver's Ed, and was not legally blind at that point, but my anxiety was...

    Licenseless Freak

    Our country and culture is about cars and driving, so imagine someone like myself who's 31, doesn't have a car nor a license. I feel like a freak. It'll get to the point where my sister's kids will surpass me - my niece is going on 12 so its only a matter of time, like 4 more...

    I had a seizure in 2011

    that has resulted in me having permanent vertigo. I can drive at low speeds and light traffic. Highway and city driving are out though.

    I legally i can drive.

    I have a valid license. But I have gotten too many tickets and no Insurance company will take me. For some reason I've have a habit of day dreaming. I I've gotten Into two accidents.

    That's what my mind tells me.

    Car. Check. License. Check. So what the hell am I waiting for? I still go to work using public transportation. I left my car at home and yay, enjoy the bliss of being a passenger. I am quite hesitant to drive these days and as much as I want it, I still have few setbacks since I...

    I Can't Drive.

    I don't have any reason other than I don't want to learn. People wonder what's wrong with me, but, honestly, I don't think there is anything wrong at all. Whenever I am in a car, it's a carpool and that's good for the environment. I walk a lot, and that's good for both the planet...

    Paralyized With Fear

    I'm 37 years old and I never learned to drive.  I have to depend on other people to get to the grocery store, rely on public transporation to commute which means I can only stay out for so long and have turned down really good jobs because they've required me to drive. ...
