    How important is it to know how to drive?

    Assalamu alaykum

    How many of you drive? How easy has it made your life? Could you imagine a life without knowing how to drive?

    Hit me up with some motivation please as my test is coming up and i am so close to just giving up as I just get so nervous and do some really dumb stuff

    ive got a phobia of buses and I can't uber for the rest or my life so I do need to pass but it's just so hard controlling my nerves and it's costing me £50 per week for lessons, I can't really keep on forking out to only fail.

    Re: How important is it to know how to drive?

    Driving is like a requirement, it gets easier once u get yr license, when u own a car you can go to town to pick something up in 15 mins whereas by public transport it would take about 2 hours and its such a hasstle

    I know ur a sister but if a potential didnt have a drivers license I'd be so put off lol

    Depends on where you live.

    I live in US in a city where public transport is terrible. Been driving since I was 15.

    Just try to relax. Do your best.

    I just get so nervous so I don't know how I will pass the test! It would make my life a million times easier if I drove but I just don't know if I'll be able to drive properly on the test and it's giving me anxiety just thinking about it!

    I'm from the UK. I can't uses buses as I have a phobia of them & it gets annoying having to uber all the time. Walkings not much of an option either as I live quite far from most places (would probably take me 1hr 45 mins to walk into town!)

    Yeah. Just make dua and try your best. There is nothing wrong if you fail. Eventually you will succeed iA.

    Re: How important is it to know how to drive?

    Insha Allah. I've already failed twice when I was 18, though I am glad I did as my intentions for driving at that time were not good.

    If anyone has any tips on how to relax and calm my nerves, please share. I've heard eating a banana (or two) is good for calming nerves so I'll try that but more tips would be good.

    I failed the first time too sis its not a big deal just dont think of it as such a big thing sis, you might fail, its okay, i mean you know yr parents might not pass the test even though they've been driving for so long, doesn't mean they cant drive, it just happens that ppl make mistakes sometimes

    Read your adhkaar with meaning
    Make dua
    Know that Allah swt only wants the best for you
    Don't put extreme pressure on yourself
    If you pass you're safe for the roads, if you don't you're not - no big deal
    £50 a week may be better than lying in your grave wishing you had more time to repent
    There job is just to assess that you will not be a hindrance to yourself or other drivers so u do ur part and let them do there's

    I passed on my 3rd time and my driving instructor said that she always felt like I was driving on a minefield without a worry in the world lol. I am a pretty rubbish driver though - like I end up hitting stationary objects. I don't even know how.

    true sis. I guess I'm just putting pressure on myself because the test is changing on 4 December so if I don't pass, I'll have to take the new test which looks harder!

    Tbh its not so hard when u drive in the snow or ice, u have to drive superslow so that makes it easier to do the test, do make sure ur car is hot so the windows dont get damp

    Re: How important is it to know how to drive?

    There plenty of Youtube videos. Just search 'How to pass the practical test' or 'Driving test tips', most of it is just reinforcement but it might help.
    Pray. Fast. Zakat. Pilgrimage. Allah.

    Re: How important is it to know how to drive?

    i am obsessed with the driving videos & watch them quite a bit.

    i had a bad lesson yesterday so my confidence is quite low. In all fairness to me, it was my first time driving in the dark!

    You have answered the question.

    Perhaps go on an advanced training course. It's not just you on the roads. All cars should be fitted with black boxes to detect poor driving. Too many mistakes in a short period of time and your licence should be taken off you.

    not important for women
    it only encourages them to leave home more often

    you do get a few exceptions but most women dont fall into this category.

    Track down the owner of the car below and ask for lessons (?)

    In seriousness, like other have said, adhkaar, Du'aas, and accepting what will happen... Obvious of course, but to take a lot more lessons leading up to the day of the test? Maybe a lesson or an extended one on the same day or just before going to the centre, so the nerves are settled a lot more, inshaaAllah.

    I remember on one of my tests... I'd never ever had problems with them before, but on the day, just as I came out of the centre at the start of the test...

    I clipped a bollard with the wing-mirror. :[
    Had to take the rest of the test knowing I'd failed pretty much on the first minute. :]

    I can literally do parallel parking with my eyes closed. On my first test my instructor told me beforehand that if I get that and fail, he will shoot me! I went to the test and guess what, completely went blank and kept stalling. I just couldn't believe it, gives me anxiety just thinking about it!

    It's actually better than getting an uber (with a male driver)

    I'm not one to leave the house without necessity, but it will make doing things like visiting my family, going to appointments and going to halaqas a lot easier.

    ive got a phobia of buses and I can't uber for the rest or my life so I do need to pass but it's just so hard controlling my nerves and it's costing me £50 per week for lessons, I can't really keep on forking out to only fail.


    It is a very useful skill to have. Regardless of the day-to-day, if a distressing situation arises and transporting someone/something is required, then you are another person (you) capable of doing it.

    Telling yourself "I am too dumb to drive" will also decrease your motivation and courage. Be brave.

    Lastly, and this may help if you're Asian/penny-pincher, Uber is expensive.

    Wanting to save some money for not using an Uber every time should motivate you.

    you're right I should stop telling myself I am too dumb to drive!

    i just don't understand bay parking & reverse around the corner, It's so complicated.

    It's important

    I drove to work and back, on the rare occasion I would go to the shops to get what I need

    Alhamdullilah it was useful

    You're not, I used to feel the same, all praise is to Allah I managed to pass.

    Anyone can drive, just focus and relax. Pretend you have a child passenger at the back.

    Alhumdulillah. Yes, I do need to focus & relax. Once I master the manoeuvres, I hope I'll be alright!

    Dear ukhti, more you drive, more confident you become. Don't worry, just chill out and you be fine.

    trying to get from one province to another on a bus can be a complete nightmare.

    IF you live in a major city in Canada driving for basic daily needs and work my not be essential but if you live in town or rural area driving is essential.

    I would think that in Major cities in europe that driving would be optional as the public transport system is much more developed by never tried it myself.

    I think in Europe it's hit and miss. Some countries have it much better than others. For example bus services in the UK, most cities have it pretty good, rural is a problem. Trains are poor and the cost is prohibitive. Some other european countries have far better train links and are much cheaper.

    If a sister has money and a job, I'd encourage her to learn driving, it's a good skill.
