I am unable to turn on car mode. I have followed the steps and there is no car or driving mode off of the text to speech options screen?

I have a new Samsung Galaxy S5. I am unable to turn on car mode. I have followed the steps and there is no car or driving mode off of the text to speech options screen. My friend has the same phone and they can turn it on and it works (not through the direction above).

You can follow the steps in our guide on how to use Car mode on the Samsung Galaxy S5 to find every feature and option available in Car Mode, formerly known as Drive Mode.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S5 from AT&T, then your device does not include Driving Mode. AT&T removed Samsung's Driving Mode and installed its own AT&T DriveMode onto your device. You can find this application in your applications list. All other versions of the Galaxy S5 have Samsung's Drive Mode installed.

This is often caused by your phone being set to activate when you are in the range of a suitable Bluetooth device. You can turn it off by making adjustments to the settings from the Car Mode's "Hi Galaxy" screen. Detailed instructions for doing this can be found in the article we've linked to the first question of this Q&A article.

Car mode autostart; I would like Car mode to turn on automatically without having to take my phone from my pocket and waiting for the safety message to complete, is this possible?

You should be able to set Car Mode to automatically start when it detects your Car, either through Bluetooth settings or by Location. Please see the guide we linked to the first question of this Q&A article, where you'll find detailed instructions on how to set this up. In the event you find that you are still unable to get it to work exactly as you'd like, there are also apps available on the Google Play Store that you can test to see if they suit your purposes.

How to turn off Drive mode on Galaxy 5 for good. I now have to do it every time I turn on headset?

How do I turn it off permanently

The problem you are encountering is with Car Mode. It can be turned off by dragging down the Notifications Panel, and just tapping the Car Mode icon. Unfortunately, it can still come on if you've previously enabled the Bluetooth auto start function, or been within range of an equipped car that could have triggered it. In this case, you'll want to scroll up to the first question in this Q&A and follow the link to our in-depth guide for using Car Mode.

I don't see the Driving mode option where the instructions say it is located?

I am trying to disable the "driving mode"

If you're not finding the instructions to disable Drive Mode in the locations we've indicated, you're probably on a Samsung Galaxy S5 or newer model. These phones use Car Mode, instead of Drive mode. To enable Car Mode, or disable it, you can drag down the Notifications Panel, and then just tap the icon. In the event you find that it still intermittently comes on, please reference the guide we've linked in the first question of this article, where you'll find a comprehensive list of all functions and features you can turn on or off in Car Mode.
