  • I think its very responsible that you've waited as long as you have because your fear.
    I have a fear of driving now, but it was because of an accident I was in.
    driving will get easier with more experience, good luck!

  • Awww. Well, I used to be fine driving, I drove 6 hours back and forth to my parents' house in FL and mine in GA with no problem. Suddenly, something happened to one of my kids and I had to drive an hour to the hospital to be with them and think about the other who couldn't be with me, and I developed anxiety, which turned into agoraphobia (avoiding things that give you anxiety, i.e. driving). I literally force myself to drive to the OB for my prenatal check ups now, and its hard. It's all normal from the stress I experienced. Did you experience any stress that might be causing you fear to drive?

  • I was like maybe 9 or 10 the first time I sat on my dads lap and drove down the street. Well, I just steered his foot was on the pedal lol. But I was 15 and had my permit the first time I drove myself. I thought it was cool.

  • I had to drive because we had to drop off the car I was driving had to be parked at my moms house and I was going to ride back with my BF. My brother is a really good driver believe it or not. he says he is my older brother cuz I am only 5'0 lol,

  • I was 15 and I must say I picked it up really well. I even went on to drive 40 ft long conventional and transit buses. The one thing is for the life of me I could park a bus in reverse (maybe because of all the mirrors) but I cannot back in to my driveway or any parking space! GRRR
