Speaking Part 1

1Do you drive often?

Luckily, I do not, as I despise driving. I usually take Ubers around the city, cycle, or walk when possible. I try to avoid driving at all costs (avoid no matter what), considering the traffic in my city is incredibly chaotic. Furthermore, there is a huge air pollution problem in my city, so I try to take this step to be more green (environmentally friendly).

2Do you want your children to drive in future?

Out of necessity, yes. I would like for them to go through the process of getting their driver’s license, just in case. For example, it would be helpful if their friend who drove them to a place gets too drunk to drive them home, etc. However, I would urge (push) them to drive as little as possible, since it’s quite risky and not environmentally friendly.

3Do you have a driver’s license?

Yes, I do. I’ve had one for 10 years now. I still remember initially failing the test my first two tries, then eventually nailing it (doing it perfectly). Although I don’t use it very often, as I much prefer cycling or walking when possible, it’s still a benefit to have it.

4At what age are people allowed to drive a car in your country?

Since I’m from a country that was made for cars with hardly any public transportation available, it’s almost necessary to have a car unless you live in a big city. With this said, we allow teenagers to get their license when they’re 16. Although it seems really young, I think it’s necessary to make life more convenient!

5Do you think it’s difficult to drive a car?

It depends. For example, it’s no piece of cake (something easy)  on narrow, crowded streets in a city. In my opinion, it’s extremely difficult to parallel park, so that’s always a big issue for me. Apart from that, I start to feel on edge (stressed) when aggressive drivers tail-gate (drive closely behind you) or beep their horns at me. However, I find driving on wide highways quite easy.

6What do you think is the best age to learn driving?

I think the current age of 18 years is ideal. The learner is still young so acquiring a new skill won’t be that difficult. On the other hand,  18 year old usually have the maturity that those younger than them usually lack. So I believe 18 is the best age to learn driving.
