This past year I’ve had some pretty big changes. I moved back in with my parents after 9 years of living away from home, started a new job (that I love) and some other things along the way too.
I learnt to drive when I lived in Cornwall and passed when I was 17. I lived in a very rural area and so it was pretty much a necessity to learn to drive! I only actually drove for a short time after that and then moved up to Sheffield to start university.
I haven’t actually been behind the wheel of a car for 10 years now, which is a pretty scary thought.
Up until now I’ve not really needed to have a car as I’ve either walked everywhere or got public transport. I always thought that there wasn’t really any need for me to have a car.
As I mentioned, I moved back home. I’m living a bit further out of Sheffield now. Things aren’t really within walking distance (work, the gym, town). I have to rely on lifts a lot which is obviously a bit meh as a 28 year old.
All of a sudden my attitude towards driving again has changed and I feel like I might get a bit of independence back if I got myself back behind the wheel.
My Mum suggested that I could get insured on her car and use it to get about.
I’m now looking into where I would get new car insurance as I’m a bit out of the loop! And possibly some refresher lessons too...
Do you drive? Do you enjoy it? Who do you get your insurance with?
