A Dictionary of Dream Symbols | Eric Ackroyd


A vehicle is one of the symbols most commonly found in our dreams, since it literally takes us to new realms and dimensions.

• Dented vehicle: Going out and finding that your vehicle has been dented may come as a response to an event that “dented” your self-esteem. It could come after a personal insult that caused you to feel degraded.

A huge dent may have even damaged your reputation.

• Recreational vehicle: On the open road, this vehicle may represent an early retirement from work. It may signify a desire to travel and see the countryside. It points to a leisurely lifestyle and thus may mention “Take your time and enjoy a little scenery.”

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller


The means by which you move forward in your life (where traveling in the vehicle represents your movement forward through time).

Other people in the vehicle can represent individuals around you in real life, or just people in the world in general.

Being in a vehicle with other people can represent a recent or imagined shared situation (for example, a dream about traveling on a bus with a bunch of playful monkeys might represent your child’s birthday party last week).

Consider also the characteristics of the vehicle (for example, an expensive car might represent abundance or pretense, a damaged vehicle might represent a feeling of vulnerability or carelessness, and a dump truck might represent clearing out your to-do list or handling a messy situation).

You; your mode of self-expression and operation. How large the vehicle determines degree to which you are actualizing potential. Whether you are driving or riding as a passenger reflects your degree of control and self-responsibility. Color, shape and direction vehicle is moving, up or down, forward or backward is important. See individual vehicles.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards


As well as indicating the manner in which you are progressing towards your goals or what is driving you forward in waking life, dream vehicles tell us whether we are in control of our lives or being driven by something or someone else. So if any vehicle appears in your dream, pay attention to the identity of the driver and try to make a connection to your waking life.

If you dream of a truck, much of the symbolism associated with cars also applies, but since trucks are often associated with business and work your dream may have hinted at the progress you are making in your working life.

If you dreamed of a rubbish truck, your unconscious may have been urging you to get rid of emotional pressures that are dragging you down. A dream of a taxi suggests a quick and direct means to your goal, but bear in mind that there is a price to pay for the trip. Are you prepared to pay it?
