In my country, buying a car isn’t exactly a big deal, but driving a car is. It sounds a bit odd, doesn’t it? Well, if it does, then the reason for this is, it is extremely difficult to obtain a driving license in my country as it involves some rigorous driving and road test. So, when I finally managed to pass the driving test a year ago or so, I felt like, I had landed on the moon.
But, I didn’t really feel the same about driving a car until I ran into a job interview where I was asked whether I had a driving license or not, as the job involved driving to some “high-end” clients once in a while. However, I didn’t get that job for whatever reasons that might have been, but it was after that job interview, I decided to learn to drive a car. So, I went to a local car driving school and started to take driving lessons mostly during the weekend. Initially, the lessons involved learning about different parts of a car and their functions. Then came the actual driving lessons on the road by understanding and following different road signs and driving rules. Needless to say, the lessons followed some stringent driving standards which weren’t always easy to maintain, but that was exactly the real “test” in order to help a future driver understand the safety and security aspects of taking a car on the roads. Anyway, the lessons had continued for almost three months, and I was finally ready to take an official driving test to obtain a driver’s license.
Anyway, I am glad that I had finally learned driving as it has allowed me the freedom to travel to my work and other places at my own pace and according to my schedules. Besides, learning this driving skill has also made me confident about applying for some “good paying” field jobs that require “driving”. Finally, learning how to drive has also allowed me to transport many bulky items in my car, which otherwise would have been really inconvenient for me if I was to carry them in public transportations.

In the end, I can say that to learn English was indeed a positive decision taken by me. It has for sure given me a slight edge over others irrefutably/ implicitly.
