I will soon be getting enough money to do one of two things that I've always wanted to, and I can't decide which. One is to take more driving lessons. The other is to get my own PC.

I know it's my decision but I want both so much for different reasons. Can you help me make my mind up please?

Well, once you've learn to drive you won't have to pay for lessons any more, but there will always be a time when you need to spend more money on the PC. I'd probably get the driving lessons out of the way. You appear to still have access to a PC already, and if you wait a little longer you'll find that the prices will always get cheaper.

Really, some PCs can be very cheap if you look in the right places and don't go for the very newest ones. Driving lessons will help you until you're too old to drive safely, but you'll need a new PC eventually anyway. Try putting the PC off for a while unless you urgently need it for a job or something.

The thing is that once I've learned to drive, I'll need to buy a car. And once I've done that, I'll need to fix it when it brakes down, refill the petrol when I use it, get insurance, tax, MOTs, Services and I'm sure there'll be more. And yes I do have VERY limited access to both a computer and the internet. And that really p*sses me off, not even being able to go to sites like chopping block, they've even blocked myspace. So thanks for helping.

Oh look this is my 911th post

Personally I'd go for the driving lessons - they allow you to get away from that nasty internet thing that sucks up your free time and your soul and your money and so on (which seems to be what it turns into when you have it available 100% of the time).

Why? You could just keep the driving license around for a time when you have more money and get on with doing other things in the meantime. Knowing how to drive is handy, but it doesn't mean that because you can do it then you absolutely must, it just means that sometimes it will be your turn to stay sober and drive people home from the pub... Hmm... Maybe you should buy the PC then biggrin.gif

If you're going to be needing to do alot of stuff on the computer then I'd probably go for that, but if you're perfectly fine with your current computer setup then I'd go for the driving lessons. Personally I love to drive and want to be really good at it, but I do spend more time in my house around my pc, so I'd probably opt to get a new pc first, then return to saving for the driving lessons.

Might be a bit late now....

DRIVING LESSONS!

I've got my test on the 1st of March, and trust me, it'll be the best feeling ever once I pass, I can't believe I've left it for so long and relied on others to ferry me around!

Go for the driving lessons. True, you may not be able to drive straight away, but you'll be acquiring a skill which will benefit you greatly in future, particularly if you're looking for a job.

You're right in pointing out the great expense involved in driving, and lessons are only a part of it, but is it any different to the expense of upgrading a PC? Any money you spend on a PC will devalue in a matter of months. A driving licence (even if you don't have a car immediately) is a qualification that will be with you for the long term.
