How can I get over my fear of driving and finally get a license?
I’m 22 and barely getting my license right now and learning how to drive. It’s taken me this long but I’m really scared to drive. I think it’s because I would not have a lot of control. I’m scared of getting into an altercation with another driver, or getting into a car crash. Or things like if I run out of gas on the highway.
I’ve made way so far by taking the bus, walking, getting rides from friends, taking taxis, or riding a bike.
I live in LA so whenever I tell anyone I don’t know how to drive, it’s really embarrassing. I don’t know why I have this fear since most kids nowadays get their license at 15 or 16 years old.
I want to get over this fear I have.
I’m pretty brave with other things in my life, like with photojournalism and being in the Army. I don’t know why it’s taken my this long to barely how to drive though.
I keep on putting off taking my written test to, for the permit.
