Hey dude, i know what you mean about getting a driving Licence i know ppl who have spent over £2000 just to get on the road which these days i hate driving with all the other car's on the road, road works and jams.
I actually passed my test first time as i had a good instructor i thought i failed as i was doing 40 in a 30 but she told me i was speeding i thought fuck ive failed then she said you have passed i was like nice one, but I did fail my Theory test, I got 89% , I needed 90% I failed on identifying a Tram Sign.
The UK has the worst Transport system in the world, seriously it is fucked, between rush hour you are going to expect 1-2 hour delay on any motorway, A 10 min journey for me can turn into a 1 and a half hour Jam. Also the average insurance for a 17-25 is £1000 ($1800) a year, as 1 in 10 insurance claims is a scam. Also road tax is £170 for 12 months for anything over a 1.6 Litre, and dont get me started on fuel it costs me £35 2 weeks to travel. I have worked out below how much i spend on driving.
Driving Lesson's (£15 per lesson) x 15 Lessons = £225
Theory Exam (29.99) x 2 = £59.98
Driving Test which takes 6months to get a test booked is £70 for exam = £70
Drving Licence Indentification is = £30.00
Fuel per month in a 1.6 Ltr car about 10,000 miles a year is gonna be £768 Year
Road Tax for year in 1.6 or higher is = £170
Insurance for average 17-25yr is £800.00 per year , i pay £1200 cos its 1.6 GTi
Overall It has cost me £2122.98 to pass my test and drive for a year (NOT INCLUDING MY CAR WHICH IS £6000 BORROWED)
