Unless you are meeting halfway this is not okay. I remember my second relationship, my bf didn't have a license and nor did I at the time, my dad would occasionally offer to drive him home to be polite, but my bf started to make a habit of it and to a degree expected him to do it, instead of just calling his own parents. When I questioned him about it he'd make excuses like he didn't want them to come out of their way as if my parents weren't for him. After a while when he finally did get his license (well his bike license), he would still expect me to travel over an hour on the train to a dodgy area to see him because he moved out of home and was much harder to get too. You do it once, and they will make a habit of it, and especially on a first date he should at the least compromise and say 'ok, we live quite far a part, so lets agree to meet at a halfway point'. If I were you I wouldn't bother, a leopard doesn't change his spots and to this day from what I've heard whenever my ex organises to go on a date with someone the first thing he asks is 'do you have a license?'.
