19 Reasons to Pass Your Test in 2019
Make 2019 the year you pass your driving test!
1. Bye bye public transport
With rail fares rising by 3.1%, it’s time to get yourself on the road! Think how much time and money you’ll save not having to take the bus or train.
2. All the drive-thrus you could want
What better reason to pass your test than making begging your mum to take you for a Maccys a thing of the past?
3. Expand your Tinder radius beyond 5 km
Widen the pool, and broaden your chances of finding true love!
4. Your mates will love you
This is a given. You can take them for a spin, pick them up if they’re sad or simply plan an adventure together!
5. Festival season
There’s nothing worse than piling a tent, suitcase and snacks on to a coach to go to a festival. Well, actually, except piling them all back on again while smelling like you haven’t (because you probably haven’t) washed in 4-5 days…
6. Weekend breaks
It’s time to explore the UK properly! Once you’re on the road, you can make the most of your weekends by seeing what the UK has to offer.
7. Get all the jobs
Around one in six UK jobs require you to be able to drive. Many employers see it as a valuable skill, and it is a sign that you can learn practical skills.
8. Stay dry
No more turning up wet! It may look romantic in movies like The Notebook or Four Weddings and a Funeral, but in reality, you’ll probably end up looking something like this…
9. You can use the ‘I’ll pick you up at 8’ line
Now that you’ve been able to expand your Tinder radius, impress your new date by picking them up for your evening out!
10. Concert featuring you!
I think a lot of us here at Veygo would agree that the best thing about driving is being able to sing at the top of your voice with no one to tell you to be quiet!
Go where you want when you want!
12. Pink license > green license
It’s a wee bit embarrassing getting out your green license when you’re asked for ID, isn’t it? Be one of the cool kids when you upgrade to a pink license.
13. Saving money
We know that driving is expensive. But, if you consider the amount you’d be spending on public transport etc otherwise, you could be saving money!
14. Late night adventures
Life is so much more fun when you’re not constrained to a bus schedule or when you’re parents are willing to drive you!
15. Visit all the national parks
Make it your mission to visit all of the UK’s 15 National Parks this year! Climb Snowdon mountain or canoe in there Lake District, there’s so much to see and do.
16. You can rescue your mates by being the designated driver
Well, someone’s gotta do it! You can make sure your mates get back safely and aren’t ripped off in taxi fares in the process.
17. Go to the BIG SHOPS
You’ll be able to drive to the big shops and, well, do a big shop! You won’t have to carry a million bags on public transport!
18. Express Yourself
You can customise your car to show your personality. This can be anything from personalised mats to go faster stripes to the classic fluffy dice hanging from your rear-view mirror.
19. New year, new me
Learning to drive is just a great resolution to have! What better time to make a change than the start of a new year?
