With any new challenge in life it’s quite normal for people to feel a bit of stress or anxiety, it could be a school exam, or like my children when they were nippers, scared of the swimming pool and also the hairdresser. The thing with being nervous is the unknown and that is perfectly healthy. Today we are going to show you how to feel in control and comfortable when driving,
As a species we have been on this planet for 1000’s of years, but it’s only the last blink of an eye have we been able to independently travel at speeds we were not designed for. So when you become nervy about driving what happens is your brain asking the question “are you safe?” Understanding that, is the first step to putting driving nerves to one side.
On your driving lessons we use dual controlled cars and your driving instructor is an experienced professional trained in driver safety, you are safe. We’ll discover where your comfort zone is and we’ll cover lots of details within those boundaries. During that time you will build a sound understanding with your instructor. While progressing at your own pace you will naturally start to feel ready to push the boundaries.
Once you have developed skills and created a level of trust with your instructor it is normal to want to go that bit further. It’s a bit like riding a bike, starting with 2 stabilisers you drop down to just one.
At Driving Genie we enjoy working with people just like you who feel anxious about driving because it also shows you are considerate and we know we have the skills and expertise to help you.
