You've been contacting us on our Facebook, about the high cost of driving. It seems fewer young drivers are getting behind the wheel. Here's some of your thoughts - and, remember, tell us what you think on our Meridian Facebook page.
I'm 17 and would rather spend £14 on a bus ticket than the £1500 odd it would to get me on the road. I'm not driving because although I would live to its just not worth the cost.
The only way i can afford my insurance is by being a named driver on my dads insurance!
Lessons are around £20 a time, say 10 lessons - at least - that's £200; then theory test is £30ish - I can't remember how much test was but say £70. Then a car, mine was £3000 for a 1.3 ka. And my insurance was £1400 aged 18. That's a total of £4700!!! If it wasn't for my family being so generous for my birthday I wouldn't be driving!! It's a joke.
