Decided to finally bite the bullet and learn to drive at the age of 22 after 2 years of putting it off. Will really help with job applicatuions so I can look outwith areas accessable by public transport. Still absolutly bricking it though. First lesson is going to be in February sometime (waiting for her to get back to me with date/time). Think what scared me off previously is that when I was 15 my uncle let me reverse his truck to hitch up a trailer. He explained everything I had to do but didn't mention to take foot off clutch slowly. Put it in reverse, foot straight off the clutch, truck went flying back, rammed the trailer up a bank and cracked the rear axle on the truck. Kind of put me off ever since haha. Any advice on how to stay calm and things to help nerves much appreciated lol.
