There are a number of stresses that can arise from driving, but most can be put at bay with forward planning and calm nerving techniques.
More often than not the thought of something is a lot worse than the action itself, this does not just include driving but other things in life too.
Becoming stressed or anxious whilst driving can cause you to make poor judgements so if you begin to suffer severe anxiety it is best to pull over and have a break, providing it is safe to do so.
If you are concerned with a particular journey, why not practise the routes with family and friends so that you feel more comfortable when driving alone.
Drive safely and take your time, don’t let other drivers intimidate you. Feeling rushed or being in the wrong lane can lead to frustration and inevitably mistakes, making you feel anxious when driving.
It may be advisable to take refresher lessons should a particular incident such as road rage or a car accident affect your perception of driving. Contact us at Britannia to arrange these refresher lessons and see driving for what it really is, a link to freedom.
