Why I put it on the list: Driving is really useful. Earlier in my career, I could get away without it, but as I relied more and more on partners and friends who could drive, it was time to sort it out.
What I did: I did a one-week Intensepass course with Rob Watson at UKDrive.net, and I passed first time back in November 2011. Since then, I've done loads of little trips, a few big ones like a big trip to France and back, and I even took the car in for its MOT.
What next: This one seems thoroughly done, although there's always room for improvement. Maybe an advanced course one day, or a track day type affair. Plus, I'm sure I'll end up with a hire car in some foreign country one of these days...
