You should write at least 150 words.
I heard that you are interested in obtaining your drivers licence.
Well that is exciting news indeed.
There are alot of advantages in having your driving licence.
Just to mention a few, you don't have to rely on friends or family to drive you to places you want to go to anymore. Furthermore, you also don't have to rely on public transport as your main way of commuting.
Having your drivers licence and own transport does also help when someone is in an emergency and in need of help to get to a hospital for example.
I can recommend A-plus Driving School. They are extremely helpful and also very reasonably priced. I will search for their number and send it to you later. I used them when I did my practicing and passed my test the first time without any difficulties.
Keep in mind to use a small vehicle when doing your test. It is much easier to do the driving test with a small vehicle than a large one.
Well, all the best with your big decision and let me know if there is anything I can assist with.

Write about the following topic:
Should long-term job seekers in receipt of government benefits be made to do voluntary work so that they give something back to the community?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
You should write at least 250 words.
I beleive that long-term job seekers that receive grants or any other means of benefits from government should definately be made to do voluntary work in order to give back to the community.
It will put less pressure on the working class and other tax payers in the first place. In order for a government to geve out benefits it needs funds first.
Having these job seekers do voluntary work will also show possible future employers that they are willing to work. If you can show that you are willing to do voluntary work, it might make them much more employable.
People also say, the less and less you work, the more you get used to it. So when these job seekers finaly get some employment, they might find it very hard to adapt and be 100% productive in what they do. This might lead up to them only working for a short time, or only for their probation period, and thereafter unemployed again.
Voluntary work also creates a productive society. A society where everyone does their part for the greater good and prosperity of the population.
I remember when I was still doing voluntary work for a animal sanctuary close to my home. It made me feel good that I was able to help those poor dogs and cats every Saturday. This is just one example, but there are many other work that one can do.
Most community members have respect for the others who does voluntary work and help out where help is needed.
So to conclude, job seekers need to do voluntary word if they receive government benefits.
