car dream dictionary meaning


Cars are so central to our lives, that a dream about a car can show a vast amount of different things relevant to your specific situation. You will have to look into the specific circumstances of your dream in order to fully understand your dream.

A car often represents how we control our lives. If your dream involves a car in any way, you are probably thinking about control in some sense or another. If you see a car pass you by in your dream, then you are wishing you had some sense of control. You must realize that everything will not always be the way you want it to. This dream shows that things are sometimes beyond your control, but you must be able to accept that.


In your dream you may have…

  • Driven a car.
  • Seen a car.
  • Been a passenger in a car.
  • Been hit by a car.
  • Been in an unmoving car.
  • Been in a car wreck.
  • Lost control of a car.
  • Visited someone in a car.
  • Driven a car into something.

Positive changes are afoot if…

  • You drove the car to an ideal location.
  • You were in charge of directions or driving the car.
  • You visited someone close to you with your car.
  • You had someone you love with you in the car.

Detailed dream interpretation...

Generally cars are attached to emotions and can indicate spiritual progression on both a psychological and emotional level. You are trying to take physical and emotional control over your own life, because you sometimes feel like somebody else is holding the wheel (especially if this really did occur in your dream). Sometimes, you need to have faith in other people and outside forces.

If you are alone in the car then this can suggest independence, though it may recommend some companionship. A dream about you alone in a car shows that you certainly have a handle on your own life, but you may be shutting other people out. You put too much value on yourself and your own material possessions (such as cars), and you tend not to let other people in.

If the car loses complete control in your dream then this indicates there is a situation that you have been trying to control with little success. There may be too much going on in your life for you to concentrate on this one situation. Try to manage your priorities so that you can devote your attention to this situation.

Dreams about cars may also indicate that you will have good fortune when making visits to others in the future. This may include visits of work or meetings with the family. If you are reversing car in your dream then this shows that you feel that your life is going backwards. You may feel stuck in your job situation or stuck in your relationship. Ask your boss or your loved one to see what it take to move toward the next level.

To dream that your car is crashed or that you drive your car into something generally means that you have a significant fear of failure in life. This may also show that you do not take your responsibilities seriously in the waking world.


If you have a dream about being left behind by a car, pay close attention. It is important that you do not feel that you are left behind in any matters with regards to the future.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life…

  • Your future hopes and goals.
  • Family members, friends, and loved ones, especially those you feel distanced from.
  • Work meetings or a very busy lifestyle.
  • Fear of failing or not achieving a goal.
  • Controlling your own destination.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of cars…

Controlled. In control. Uncontrollable. Afraid. Happy. Adventurous. Responsible. Active. Alone. Spiritual.
