The good news? There are ways to move past the fear. Give these helpful tips a try:

parked car in the driveway. Familiarize yourself with everything and how it feels. If you can, practice in small steps by turning the car on, driving a few feet and then braking.

  • Have someone with you. When you’re ready to venture out, take someone who is experienced and calm. Don’t worry, they can take over if you get too anxious.

Whatever reservations you have about driving, you can prevail. Remind yourself that you are in control, taking each obstacle one step at a time. This will make it easier to get behind the wheel and reach your destination safely.
