    Are you scared of driving?

    Salams everybody,

    Just wondering whether you are scared of driving or not. If so, why?

    Reason I ask is because my mother has her full license but hasn't driven in a while. She is now "scared" of driving all of a sudden and was wondering of ways to help her overcome this. Would the "practice makes perfect" saying work here?

    Actually getting her to drive again is a bit hard, so if you have any advice to share would be great. She's not a bad driver, used to cheer her on as we pull up to the drive way and she like speeds into the garage to park the car haha.

    I myself don't have my full license but will get it in a months time, and maybe will try and help her because she has become reliant on another person to go places (which I don't mind helping btw, but would like her to be how she was, driving around etc)

    I passed on my first test but wasnt confident after passing, I dont know how I passed first time to be honest. Prayers me thinks

    tell her to take some extra lessons just to get her back into the swing of things

        I failed my first test for not physically checking my blindspot mirrors :(, even though I had two small blindspot mirrors on either side of the car, and in turn left it for another 4 months before I booked my test again... Should have booked it sooner and not been such a sore looser about it (after the test, the assessor says try to have a good day lol) and I actually had exams the following week and actually took time out to practice... but now I'm in the process of getting my provisional license, have to wait a mandatory 6 months -_- even though I've completed my logbook hours already lol...

            ahh

            that sucks, but all in good time

            try and pass asap, they are trying to discourage ppl from passing as they want less cars on the roads

                wow ikr, I live in Australia btw, they are making it harder and harder to pass. Thankfully I just have a computer test before I can get my provisionals, should be easy.

                Lol in my last practical test, I had a young guy around 20 years old, was a bit weird cas I'm 18 and he had a bit of an attitude, plus it was raining. Alhamdulillah he kind of skipped over a ton of things, but I had to do my test in the rain with little visibility, almost missed a turn... had to do the parking section in front of the driving center and wow that was my best parking ever (i'm bad at parking lol); I remember distinctively reverse parking and as I'm going back I'm staring in my mirrors to see the lines and I'm saying Bismillah, please ya Allah help me, and it came out perfect :).

                        Im scared to drive. Plus I think it's more of a man's thing. Except for my mom, she is a pro Ma shaa ALLAH.

                        I'd rather be droven around, but I'd like to give it a go. Mom said I'll learn this summer.

                          Awesome, yeah there's no harm in trying. Even if your scared, which you will or won't be on your first try just practice in like dead empty roads and should build your confidence up like that.

                          For me after my first driving sessions, ankle would always be sore :/ dad telling me to brake, accelerate, brake and your leg aint used to it so expect that lol... Oh and don't make the mistake of having ur right foot on accelerator and left foot on brakes haha, that's how I thought it was done, but nope... all your right foot.

                          Mashallah that's good to hear about your mum, she doesn't happen to be the ones who drive a big 4WD? lol
