I just know how to drive motorbike and bicycle. I think it is really difficult to drive a car. In my country where has a lots vehicles and transports, drivers of taxies and cars find some difficulties to move in. Some is so polite and always obeys the rules, others is rude and impolite. As for me, driving skills are so so important in daily life every person. When attending to drive, I just hope everyone always obeys the rules in transportation to protect your safety and for community

Driving is very essential in our life. We gain lots of opportunities to learn from own mistakes and others. At the same time It teach us how to be patient while facing difficulties. you can see individual differences . some are very polite and follows driving rules, in other hand some are not following rules. It is all about common sense, if you have a good sense of humour you will be a good driver, We can avoid accidents. in order to gain confidence we need to drive regularly. Do not afraid to drive, it is an essential life skill.

I do not know driving completely. But i like safe driving. as it is necessary in day to day life. Driving helps in making us dependent. if you know driving, you can go anywhere . it saves our time and we can help our family member and others also. the disadvantage of the driving is we can see more vehicle on roads. which causes environmental issue, noise pollution and heavy traffic on roads.

Driving is a must have skill to survive in Western countries. I am driving car since 2009 and I have mix kind of experience. I must say it is life saver especially during bad weather such as in winter or scorching summer. However, one should also consider its drawback such as high maintenance, high cost petrol ( we say "gas" in USA and Canada), and of course not eco-friendly. The most irritating situation is when I have flat tyre in the middle of storm or heady snow flow. Besides all these, I still love driving car. To admin, Please make some comments. what is right spelling of wheel: tyre or tier ? Thanks

Hello piyush_bpin,

In the UK we write tyre, while in the US the standard spelling is tire.

Tier is not correct.

Hello again piyush_bpin

Both British and American English (as well as other varieties) are accepted on the IELTS exam, though as much as you can, you should be consistent about using one variety.

All the best

I have got my driving license since 20 years ago. Hence, I am a skilled driver. I like to drive when the weather is good and cooling. I had a bad experience of driving during a summer in Australia when temperature hit 40 degree celsius. The condition on the road was very dry and hot making it very dangerous for the driver.

I've just got my driving license for cars a week ago (I've already been having one for motorbikes for around 5 years) and it's a really amazing, but at the same time, sometimes really frightening experience to drive so far. Sometimes I feel like I'm not really prepared for unexpected situations yet, but in normal traffic conditions, I think it goes quite well. I'm a woman and I really enjoy being able to drive a car. In this fast-paced modern world, I think it's a really huge advantage, and it gives lots of freedom knowing that I can drive anywhere, anytime and that I don't need to depend on other people if I need to do a big shopping and so on... :) Although I still need to practice a lot as a beginner car driver, I'm sure that being able to drive is a wonderful thing, which gives us much more freedom and flixibility as we don't need to depend on public transport schedules and change buses several times to get from one point to another. We can save lots of time as we don't need to stand in the bus stop waiting for the bus to come, thus we can fill our days with more useful activities.
