My wife and I have two children. Soon we will have three. Neither of us know how to drive, and we do not have a car. With the prospect of having three small children, however, I think having a car might be handy. The problem is that we still have study loans to pay, and surely a car, insurance, and driving lessons are not cheap and we'll certainly need another loan. We have a single income, and at the moment whatever money that we don't use goes to pay the study loans.
Would buying a car and taking driving lessons for me be a wise thing to do at this time, given our situation? Or should we wait and make do without a car until all our study loans are paid for? This may take another 5 years.
