If you were driving a car, you'd pay for the car, insurance, gas, repairs, car washes, parking, etc. More people that age in our area are no longer learning to drive or owning a vehicle for now, and are instead using buses, trains/subways, Uber, Lyft, and public bikes & scooters.
Did you mean every person has license? Every other person means that half did not. Why is your question in the Senior section. We don't giveashit if you even had to walk to your senior classes! If you only knew what other students in the world had to do to get to school everyday, you would be very grateful that you had a yellow bus that's willing to take you there for free.
It MIGHT be just a tiny bit unusual. That is a very, very long way from 'weird'.
You Americans don't know you're born. In the UK it is very far from the norm for students to drive - or even HAVE - their own cars. When I was at university perhaps one student in 50 had a car. The rest of us walked, or took the bus, or cycled.
My sister and I didn t get our licenses until we graduated from high school - and turned 18 years old. I took city buses to high school and college. I couldn t afford a car or all the $ it took to maintain the car (including insurance). I was on my parents insurance until I got my first professional job (at 23). So, take your time- don t worry about driving. Get more practice in and take your time.
