>>209197>>How do people in America get around without a car if they don't live in NYC or maybe Chicago?
Usually they carpool with family/friends, have a significant other drive them around, rely on shitty transport, bike, or live close enough to work/school/stores to walk it.
I didn't get my license until 25. I'm 27 now and live in England (from the U.S. bay area). The bus service is pretty unreliable here (often 20-30 minutes late etc) so ironically there are a lot of times I wish I had a car.
Meanwhile it took me until my mid-twenties to learn to drive because I was scared I'd kill someone.
All I can say is that it's important to have a good teacher. Just because they are paid doesn't make them good. My stepdad did a 100x better job teaching me to drive than any of the "professionals".
Driving can open up a whole new world, so I'd recommend it to any anons!
