How do you persuade your parents into getting you a car?

What are some tips?

You point out the dangers of public transportation, being sure of course, to play up the "surrounded by strangers" angle. If this doesn't apply to you, then you could point out the wear and tear on their car while they are your taxi.

Tell your parents the benefits that having your own car will bring. They will no longer have to "taxi" you around. They can send you for errands that they don't want to run, like going out for more milk. They will no longer have to take your younger sibling to the mall because you can do it now.

1. Demonstrate responsibility: be on time for curfew, get good grades, and take care of personal property. 2. Demonstrate maturity: safe decision-making, awareness of surroundings, and proactive behavior. 3. Obtain a job: save money for insurance. Show that you are serious about taking on the responsibility. 4. Explain how you having a car will improve their quality of life.
