Well, I was going to do drivers ed, till my mom and I found out the price. 300 dollars to the lowest just for session 1. Is that not the biggest rip off in the world? This is really bad for me as I feel I wont be driving for a long time, my brothers 17 and he doesn't look like hes going to be getting a car anytime soon, as well as his license. What am I supposed to do? I'm screwed! My mom is not made of money as shes a single parent and we struggle enough.

What? Three hundred dollars for one session? That doesn't sound right. I think, way back when I did that class, it was three hundred for ten or twelve days of it, each lasting around two or three hours each.

Your behind the wheel stuff after you 'graduate' from driving class is what costs money per session. That's where you drive around with an instructor and they critique you on your driving skills, and pass you on to the next session if they feel you're good enough. After three or four syuccessful sessions, and if you're of at least sixteen years of age (though this can fluctuate from state to state), you can go get your driver's license.

I'm 18 and I get around fine just by walking. I don't have a car. I don't have a license. I walk everywhere I go. Walk to work/school every day (2 miles each direction) et cetera.

Walk! :D

That does sound like a lot of money.

Is it possible for you to get a job and save your money and sign up in six months or so?

Forget Drivers Ed. Just drive with your mom...Driving isn't that hard. Unless you're blind.

Man, that's a rip. The place where I took it was $399 for the entire course, which includes 32 hours of lessons and driving practice. After that, just wait 6 months and you can get your license. Different states have different laws though. And I know that different countries sometimes have very harsh driving policies. The drivers licenses here costs $5 and some paperwork

You legally need to take driver's ed to get your license before being 18, after 18 you can just take your road test whenever and get it. At least this is how I thought it worked. I still don't have my license either and it is quickly become more and more inconvenient. I can't walk to school and my friends houses and stuff, that would take hours. So I really need to get my license this summer.
