19 Reasons to Pass Your Test in 2019

Make 2019 the year you pass your driving test!

by Eilidh

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!

11. FREEEEEDOM!

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.

via GIPHY

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!

via GIPHY

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!

via GIPHY

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.

via GIPHY

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.

via GIPHY

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!

via GIPHY

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.

via GIPHY

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?

Hi I'm Eilidh 👋 I joined Veygo for a 3 month internship in June 2018 and loved it so much I decided to stay! I've been driving for 4 years and, despite being an awful singer, I am known to belt out performances of my fave songs in my car 👩‍🎤
