MAN THOUGHT OWNING A CAR IS A “DREAM”, BUYS ONE & SAYS IT’S A FINANCIAL NIGHTMARE

To many people, I would suppose owning a car is a dream that they always wanted to have.

I have the chance now that many would have wished for but to me it is not a dream but rather a nightmare. I am lucky enough to come from a well to do family and my parents wanted to buy me a car for my birthday this year.

The issue is that I cant seem to pass my driving tests at all. I have taken over 30 lessons so far and had taken and failed 3 tests. 2 of the tests I had an immediate failure while I chalked up above 40 points for the last test. I had spent about $6000 so far on driving which I feel is such a waste of money. My dad has been encouraging me to continue and that I will pass one day.

Yeah sure I may pass one day out of luck after 10 or 20 tries maybe? I feel so stressful whenever I am sitting behind the drivers seat now. To me, I would rather not have any car and just take public transport everyday to and fro work where its so much more relaxing.

I am not even confident of driving on the road or changing lanes even if I pass. I feel its so hard to change lanes when there are so many vehicles around. I almost got into accidents few times even when there is the instructor around me and I can feel that the instructor is also very stressed when hes teaching me. I am probably the worst student he ever had. Singapore traffic is so bad with so many vehicles, what for add to the stress with driving when I can sit on the MRT or bus and just watch my netflix shows.

I am thinking of giving up driving entirely but I am not sure how do I break it to my parents. I am sure they will be disappointed with me as they really had hoped for me to be able to drive them around. At the same time I also feel bad that I had spent about $6000 of their money yet not achieving anything in the end.
