As a child I would always SHUT MY EYES for as LONG AS POSSIBLE when riding a bike for a PERVERSE THRILL so we don’t need that UNHINGED BEHAVIOUR in charge of a vehicle with WEIGHT and VELOCITY.

I did this once or twice when I first got my license :square: A perfect reason why teenagers should not be allowed to drive

Yea I drive. Enjoy it a lot more since going electric. Less faff, less noise, ability to fuck off boy racers at the lights.

I drive, don’t currently have a car or a license. I hate driving tests and I failed the test last year (who the fuck cares about parallel parking in 2020).

I don’t understand why driving test centers have to be located in the furthest part of the city where you need a car to get to it, it’s all such faff.

Also my last car was such a nightmare that I don’t want to deal with mechanics again.

On my first test I was about to pass and then buggered up the reverse into the parking bay at the test centre at the end :D

It was a bit harsh really, I wasn't lined up properly and pulled forward to retry. He said it has to be done in one manoeuvre and failed me for it.

What kinda cars do y'all drive?

Renault Zoe 22kWh in white (most of them are as it's the free colour). Well I say white, it spends most of its time white with a hint of grey and the lower half likes to do Dalmatian impressions with road tar.

I had a red Citroen c4, it was as mentioned a piece of crap. The two previous were Mitsubishi Lancer.

I like how moopy has the ability to make me feel relatively normal. In real life I have to cast my friendship net fairly wide (beyond 'friends' at all, really) before I'd catch a fellow non-driver.

Whereas i'm driving a 62 plate fiesta, and I don't care. It goes from a to b. And it's red, and I like red.

Nope. Can't drive and have absolutely no interest in ever learning either. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I find out that some of my favourite pop stars can't drive either.

And I don’t like to stereotype but all BMW and Audi drivers are CUNTS
I do drive STILL and I’m now driving an £80k Audi 70 Plate e-Tron, which is really rather fucking delightful!
:D

@Soldi to apologise on-screen?

as a non-driver I've always LOVED AUDIS and the e-Tron is the kind of car that makes me want to LEARN. I think I'd even sooner take a Porsche Taycan though.

People who hate Audi drivers are just those who can’t afford them...

I absolutely love my car. I see it as an incredibly fortuitous and lucky purchase back in December last year. After leaving London I couldn’t cope with the lack of transport facilities living back in the northern suburbs and felt very cut off and dependent. But as it turns out it ended up being even more crucial - I can’t imagine not being able to drive anywhere during lockdown. The buses here are shite enough and they’ve been reduced, there’s no local train station (bus links to train but again, reduced) and it’s the sort of service that just comes when it wants. It does go into Liverpool but it literally has to pass through cow and sheep crossings to get to me before it gets to the city. They’ve given up on timetables here.

so I’ve ended up using the car even more than I expected. The thought of having to jump a bus right now just to go and buy some milk :zombie:

What on earth are you doing in the SUBURBS, funkeh :shock: I pictured you with a glamorous penthouse overlooking Albert Docks.

as stated above I don't drive, but when I turn 30 (next July) I'm considering maybe taking lessons for a motorbike license...

does anybody drive one? I don't really want or need a car, but I like the idea of the freedom a motorbike would bring. if you know someone who was killed driving one, please don't share.

I see myself on something like this - definitely affordable as well

cos I decided to go back to where I grew up - I don’t know many people here any more so best to be near family. Which was the right choice.
Post covid if I end up staying here I will definitely move to the riverside.

I don't even think I've ever sat in the DRIVERS SEAT of a car, never mind learned to DRIVE!

As a zone 2 gay that plans to stay that way INDEFINITELY, it's not a huge deal at all. A BIKE is much more useful than a car.
However, being able to drive would be useful when on holiday - thankfully most of my close friends all have the ability so I get to just SIT IN THE CAR and stare out the window :disco:

It took me four times to pass the practical test :manson:
Same here! :D

Although when I did finally pass I had ZERO FAULTS.

I LOVE cars and so does my husband. We usually have 3 on the go as he loves old bangers - sorry CLASSIC CARS.

I currently drive a KIA Soul - it’s automatic and I bought it with 700 miles on the clock and 6 year warranty. Really pleased with it so far.

Before this I had two Mercedes A Class - one amazing and one dreadful. I’m planning to buy a cheap SLK in the new year for weekend thrills.

Also had an MGF convertible like VB for a while but that was AWFUL.

My favourite car was a £350 mint green Nissan Micra - it was so fun and reliable. I remember just crashing it into walls by accident, like Edina Monsoon, and not really caring because it was indestructible.
