I'm 27 and still don't have my license. Lol. I've driven a few times. I know how to drive. Very well, according to my teachers. I've just never felt this urgent need to get my license.

Lol. I got my license at 16, but I was in a head on while driving and it freaked me out. Now, I just get around with help from boyfriend, friends, family, etc.

I have always used public transit or my bike. When I moved out of state I learned how to drive, again, and almost got my license. But then moved back, and haven't really needed it.
My husband has his license and drives when absolutely needed, our family clinic is literally a block away, the elementary school is a mile away, and there is a library, several parks, and tons of stores in walking distance.
I'm sure I'll get it soon. It's just not a priority for me right now. Lol.

I've got nothing. I've never gotten my license or really learned how to drive. I'm capable of it and I have driven, just not legally and not on streets with other cars.

I almost never drive by choice - I don't think I have had to drive in over a year, but even when I did it has been sporadic. I have a car available to me, but I enjoy walking. Do you choose not to drive, or do you have a reason? Also do people constantly ask you if you want a ride? It seems people always ask me then act like it's weird I want to walk.

I wish we had more public transport here. When I lived in STL I used it, but we're on the outskirts now lol

It's by choice..I rarely walk unless I want to. People have asked me, but if I'm walking it's because I wasn't the exercise lol. I guess you could call it PTSD...I hate to use that, but when I have driven since my crash I kind of..freaked out

If it's for anxiety, or PTSD just for me I don't really consider that a choice more so a reason - if that makes sense.
