Actually, I think you're BIL kind of proves MattM's point, and supports Michelle's and my experiences as well. I didn't get my license 'til I was 30 when I got a job in a rural area. When you need a license, you can go get one. Until then, what's the rush?

I agree that getting a license doesn't need to be seen as a capitulation, but I can't help thinking there isn't something ideological in the assumption that everyone should get one just for the sake of having one. As a culture, we are still too over-invested in the idea of a license and car ownership as rites of passage, to put what is essentially a practical decision in its proper context.
