in my company, most of my colleague can drive a car. my manger always tells me that learning to drive a car is necessary toward nowadays' society. in such atmosphere, i with one of my colleague learnd to drive 4 months ago. fortunately, today i get driving lience. but even i get driving lience, i do not have a car because i can not afford to buy. today i ask myself,why i learn driving so eary? why i learn it when i have ability to buy a car? i can not answer myself,because i really do not know. before i learn driving,just because most of my colleague have already learned driving, i do not hope in my company only me can not drive. maybe it is my self-respect can not permit me.

Learning a thing, no matter how small, is always an advantage. Sometimes, those things we know and have learned may of no use but we should always be grateful that we learned a thing. Your manager is right. Today, driving is becoming an essential skill. Imagine if there's an emergency and there's a car but no one knows how to drive. Also, if you will look at the job postings now, you will notice that many of them, specially in the marketing and trading business, requires the applicants to have driver's license. And yes, only those who knows how to drive can work as drivers, right? So learning how to drive is one good thing and gives you an advantage no matter if you have don't have a car.
