I am finally going to break down and learn how to drive, at age 22. I actually do pretty dang well in St. Louis on public transit, on my bike, and on foot, but I think my ability to do errands, our rehab, and my employment prospects might get a little better if I could drive. I get most of the things I need to do done without a car, but it can be frustrating to have to block out three hours just to go across town and get a haircut, and it is very frustrating to have to peruse different bus schedules for every help wanted ad I look at. Not to mention, having the ability to drive is good in case of emergencies, and boy do I owe a lot of people rides.
The big decision for me is: Do I fix up the Karmann Ghia that I've been shamefully neglecting for the past several months, or do I sell it and replace it with a scooter? That will take some thinking.
For now, though, the big question is: Can anyone recommend a good place in (or very near) the city to take driver's ed? And is there anywhere I should avoid?
