      I am 32 and only just getting my liscense in a few weeks (hopefully). You aren't alone. Ever since I started practicing, even being in the passenger seat is anxiety producing for me. I view it as a challenge. To show my anxiety that I CAN do it.

      I'm 22 and I do not drive because I'm so anxious about it. I get really bad panic attacks if I even try to drive.

      Yep! I was 18 when I started to learn how to drive bc I was petrified of it. But the more I practiced in areas I was familiar with, I became more comfortable driving anywhere :)

      I am almost 20 & still fear driving. Its best to just jump into it. If you know how to drive & know the ways of the road it'll be okay. Sometimes it helps to know the steps it takes to get to your destination. Google map/world before hand & go through the drive before actually getting in the car.

        @Alpine thanks I definitely have noticed that when I drive in an area I am used to I am a little more comfortable then just following my parents direction. Ill try using maps and see if it helps.
