I'll admit that I have lived in Owenton my whole life which is 41 years & I've never owned a vehicle & I never learned how to drive. I have to push my groceries home from Meadowview in a shopping cart. I just can't afford a vehicle to be honest. I'm on disability. I walk around Owenton & I get plenty of exercise. I know if you live in Owenton & don't have access to a vehicle or don't have a driver's license which I don't, your pretty much screwed so that sucks for me but there is nothing I can do about it because it is what it is.

Start learning now, it's never too late.

Believe me, I want to learn but I'm 41 years old. I don't have family or friends around to teach me how to drive. I don't have access to a vehicle to take the road test & I also need at least 120 hours of practice behind the wheel. I don't know anyone in Owenton to teach me how to drive. basically, I'm screwed because getting a driver's license is my only hope of leaving Owenton.

What about motoring schools? Paying someone?

Well, as far as paying someone to teach me how to drive, I don't think I can afford that because I have my rent, electricity, cell phone & credit card debt plus food & things like that because I'm barely scraping by as it is but I guess I could look into a driving school if I knew where to begin my search. I don't know if you can rent a car for the road test or not. I want to leave Owenton but I need a vehicle to do it because I am going to need something to sleep in when I leave Owenton but at this point, I think a driving School is the only option I have left. driving schools cost money so I have to find one that's cheap.

What about vehicles, which don’t need a licence? Like a scooter up to 50cc? It’s not brilliant in the winter, I know, but better than nothing!

I guess I could look into that. Technically, you don't need a driver's license to buy a vehicle but you do need a driver's license to drive it off the lot. Theoretically, I could purchase a vehicle & have it delivered to me or something like that then find a licensed driver to teach me how to drive. since, I live in an apartment, I need to haul all my furniture up to county barn & I need a vehicle to do that. The rest of my stuff, I can just throw away. I however will look into buying a scooter or something like that as you suggested. your right, it is better then nothing. I need to come up with a substantial amount of money to help me leave Owenton because there is no way of getting around the money issue unless u want to live out on the street & take your chances which I don't. If I can come up with some money, that could open some doors for me allowing me to leave Owenton behind but the first step would be finding a way to take my furniture up to county barn so I guess I will tackle that problem first. when I don't have possessions to worry about then I can finally leave Owenton if I find a way to do it. Thanks for the tips. That was really great advice.
