Help with my motivation to learn to drive July 11, 7: I am 23 years old and have very limited driving experience. It also causes me to experience anxiety and worry to think about driving.
What type of plan can I implement to help change my behavior so that I can at least start practicing? Right now I take the bus and walk. I would love the ability to drive just so that I had that option.
In the past, I've had two driver's permits and they both expired with me getting in only a little practice. I get very nervous on the road and I really don't even know where to start. I end up focusing on the driver's exam and experiencing a lot of anxiety. I've been practicing relaxation techniques for months now and using "imagery" which was recommended to me by a professor to help ease the anxiety driving can cause, and it has helped a lot, but now I just need the motivation to get out there and do it!
I really want to get my license, but I don't know how to stay motivated to even try. I planned on getting a new permit again weeks ago and instead I just never have and I sit here and get down on myself because I'm not even trying.
In a year I start a rotation at school wherein I will have to travel all over the city to different locations.
I can continue to take the bus, but I'm sure driving would be so much easier. Also, my friendships have been limited due to this as it isn't always possible to hop on the bus and meet up.
Does anyone have any advice how I can stay motivated? Any other driving tips for an embarrassed 23 year old? I have a vehicle that I can practice with so that isn't a problem. I've looked at driving schools but I don't have that kind of money.
I'll just have to rely on my husband, but I just don't even know where to start! You don't need driving school with the filmstrips and all, but you need some road lessons, and they will have package deals and individual sessions.
And they are absolutely worth it. I didn't learn how to drive until I was older than you, and can say from experience that every year you wait, the more phobic you get. Driving lessons are worth it because: These people are the most blase people on the planet. They let 16 year old boys who've never been behind the wheel drive them around and absolutely nothing frightens them.
Your husband, no matter how chill he is, will feel tense being driven around by someone who doesn't know how and that tension will affect you and compound your fear. Your husband is the man you love and trust and it'll be too easy to quit and pull over and burst into tears.
You won't even be tempted to do that with a driving instructor because - 3. You'll be much safer. People will avoid you, and they'll keep an eye on you and they will be more cautious in your vicinity than in your husband's normal car. This makes it much easier - to get used to driving before you have to deal with people cutting in front of you, etc.
If you make a mistake or get into trouble - that amazingly relaxed driving instructor will have a hand break AND the experience to grab the wheel and safely drive the car through the tricky spot from the passenger seat.
Your husband won't know how to do this.
I strongly recommend that you take a few hours of road lessons and get used to things. Then you'll have the confidence to drive your husband around in his car.
Then - book a road lesson or two for some scary stuff - like merging onto the expressway, and changing lanes at high speed.Activating the Desire to Learn. by Bob Sullo.
