    how much driving means to me

    Hi,

    Is the expression "how much driving means to me" correct in the following text

    I remember the day I got my driving license she said: “take my car and go for a drive”. She knows how much driving means to me.


    Thank you.

    Yes, it's fine.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There is no need to post in bold, Eman.J.T. The basics of punctuation are not too difficult to remember:

    - Always end a sentence with the relevant single punctuation mark (full stop, comma, question mark, exclamation mark).
    - Do not put a space before those punctuation marks.
    - Always put a space after them.

    Note, though, that when using a full stop between initials, as you have done in your username, you do not put spaces between the ones that are between initials, but you do put one before the surname/title.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
