Deal with fear of driving for the first time – personal injury lawyer in Oxfordshire
Some people find it more difficult than others to get used to the idea of driving, which can make it more difficult to begin driving in the first place. Of course, no one is forcing you to drive at all, but so many people find that their lives are made much easier by being able to drive that it is worth trying to learn. Here are some ways in which you can get used to the idea of driving, and get rid of some of your fear.
Get to know the car
When you are driving for the first time the car may seem very complicated and alien to you. Sit in the car for a while before you take your first lesson and find out what everything does and where everything is. Beyond the simple things such as the steering wheel, accelerator and brake, you might want to know where the air conditioning is, the radio and so on. This means that if you do need to change something on the road you will know exactly where it is.
Adjust your seat, mirrors and seatbelt
Everyone is different so everyone will need to adjust the car to suit them before they start to drive. Never start driving if you are uncomfortable, can’t see properly or don’t feel safe. Make sure that the car is fitting to you perfectly rather than trying to suit yourself to the car.
Remove any distractions
Anything which is in your field of vision or will distract you from the road should be removed before you start driving. For your first time it may be helpful to turn off the radio and your mobile phone as well.
