To dream that you are driving a car, symbolizes your ambition and your ability to navigate from one stage of your life to another. Consider how smooth or rough the car ride is – that suggests how easy or hard your path will be to your goals.
Also consider whether you are driving the car or a passenger, because it represents whether you take an active or passive role in your life.
If you are a passenger, it can also mean your knowledge will earn you good fortune, especially if the car is expensive.
