My fellow europoors on this board, I've come here to tell you, overcome autism, get a license, get a car. I did it, you can do it too.
I feel cool, that I can finally drive to college, and no longer have to ride my bicycle between the teenage kids. No longer tired, sweaty or wet arrivals at school. Driving is comfy and fun, and the more you do it the better you get at it. Girls take me much more seriously, and has overall greatly improved my confidence.
Do not take advice from 40-50 year olds who are getting back into cycling. They've used cars all their youth. Don't waste yours on a stupid low test bicycle.
It is scary at first, but you can overcome it.
Do it as soon as possible, while you are still young, and having a license still makes you special among your peers.
