Fortunately, there are lots of ways you can allay those initial fears, and begin driving with confidence
Passing a driving test can be a breeze for some people and a long and arduous process for others. Nervousness, spatial awareness problems or forgetting all the starting/turning checks necessary are some of the most common pitfalls.

They can vary in size, from large and busy to very small, so a better understanding of them will definitely help learner drivers.
