The intended meaning is to compare "learning" how to drive with "learning" how to play.

(A) learning how to drive is considerably more important than to learn playing the guitar
correct meaning , but incorrect parallelism (learning <--xx--> to learn)

(B) learning how to drive is considerably more important than playing the guitar
correct parallelism, but incorrect meaning (comparing learning with playing which is an altered meaning)

(C) how to drive is considerably more important than how to play the guitar.
correct parallelism, but incorrect meaning (we should be comparing between "learnings", not between "how to" procedures)

(D) learning to drive is considerably more important than learning to play the guitar.
correct parallelism and meaning

(E) to learn driving is considerably more important than to be playing the guitar.
incorrect parallelism, redundant and non-idiomatic use of "be" ; plus incorrect meaning (comparing learning with playing which is an altered meaning ---> same as B)

D is correct
