With rising oil prices these days, who would still want to drive a car? Technically, this will affect a lot of aspiring drivers, particularly the teenagers. But the groups which will surely be hit hard would be the companies that provide driving lessons as their main bread and butter.
For the record, there are many people who enroll in driving institutes to know the basics of driving and be able to drive their own car to get to the destinations of their preference. But with gasoline practically becoming impossible to afford, people are being advised to turn to public transportation or even use bicycles if they really want to avoid these fuel burdens. And if this keeps up, who would want to learn to drive?
Just imagine the fees included in studying driving. It does not come cheap. Enrolling in these driving institutes such as A1 Driving Academy in the Philippines really costs a lot. So when you think of it, you have to pay to be taught to drive and the next thing you have to think of is on whether you can afford the fuel prices. Now that is something that will really make you think twice.
In general, you just have to be practical. For the people who used to drive their car to work, many are taking the bus, trains, and subway or better yet, hitch a ride to people who are still driving cars to get places. So with these options available, would you still want to learn to drive?
