One worth­while step you can take to build your driv­ing con­fi­dence is to in­vest in some re­fresher lessons to fo­cus on what­ever is­sues you feel are hold­ing you back. Call up a few lo­cal driv­ing in­struc­tors and ask if they have ex­pe­ri­ence with teach­ing li­censed driv­ers, and go with who­ever you feel most com­fort­able with. Don’t worry that the in­struc­tor will judge you – they’ll be used to ner­vous driv­ers and happy to take your lessons at a pace that helps you feel safe.

The road-safety char­ity iAM Road­s­mart runs coach­ing ses­sions to help driv­ers build up their con­fi­dence in par­tic­u­lar as­pects of driv­ing, such as mo­tor­way driv­ing or park­ing. the ses­sions are held in your own car, and cost £45 for 75 min­utes. for de­tails, call 0300 303 1134 or visit iamroad­s­mart. com/on-road-mod­ules.

Read How to Over­come fear of Driv­ing: the Road to Driv­ing Con­fi­dence by Joanne Mal­lon (£7.99, Nell James Pub­lish­ers).
