Let’s face it, before we pass our driving test we have so many ideas and plans for when we finally get to hit the open road. Finally securing that driving license is the key to freedom; you can go anywhere and do the things you’ve always wanted to do.

You can take to the open road, feel the wind in your hair, with the music cranked up and live without a care in the world. We can blame the movies for most of our misconceptions about driving, because when it actually comes to passing our test and getting behind the wheel, things are a little different:

I Can Go Where I Want When I Want

Probably the hardest realisation is that this statement isn’t true at all. Although we envision ourselves driving into the sunset in a cloud of dust, the reality is that we’re hopping in our car and setting off to work – again! The truth is that our car doesn’t mean we can break the cycle of our work/school life. We’ll have to save those trips for the weekend. If we have the money.

With A Car I Will Have My Freedom

When you actually find time out of your busy schedule to do something different, you’ll find yourself looking at your fuel gauge and saying to yourself, “How do I need more petrol?”. A lot of us fall into the trap of getting our first car and completely giving up on walking anywhere. Which means that when it comes to the weekend, we don’t have enough money to fuel the car for any long-distance drives.

Road Trips

Road Trips can be great fun – just not for the driver. For the driver, road trips require a lot of concentration, and long-distances will just leave you feeling tired. In no time at all you’ll be asking someone else to drive on the next road trip, so you can sit back and enjoy the ride, maybe take a quick nap or check in on social media.
