It can be hard to try something new like learning to drive, but it can have its rewards in the end such as buying your first car. Stepping into unknown territory is frightening for most. Being unsure about what the next step is or how to handle a certain situation can be intimidating. One such scenario is learning the task of driving, and getting behind the wheel of a car for the first time.
There are sequences you must follow, such as putting the key in the ignition before starting the car, but those are the simple tasks. There is a lot that needs paid attention to while driving like street signs, stoplights, pedestrians, speed limits, and most of all, other drivers. However, taking the initiative, learning the task at hand, and getting past the embarrassment of the ‘Student Driver’ sign on the back of the car gets you to your ultimate goal, that of obtaining your driver’s license and buying a car. There is really nothing else that compares to the feeling of buying a car. It is yours and no one else’s.
Learning to drive and buying your first car has been a rite of passage. You now have the freedom to go when and where you need to go. You do have to pay for gas and car insurance now, but it certainly beats waiting for the bus on a cold snowy day. Now you are able to sleep in and have a leisurely morning, and maybe even stop for coffee and a donut on your way to work.
