Driving is pretty scary at first, but eventually you will get used to it and you'll feel comfortable behind the wheel. Just try to relax because freaking out will just make things worse. When you first start driving, try to stick to roads that you know, then start to venture out onto unfamiliar roads because unless you plan to never leave your city, you'll need to know how to adapt to driving in unfamiliar places. You should also try to get a decent amount of practice time on the highway because its a completely different experience than driving on regular roads. It is a bit scary because of the higher speeds, but its actually a little safer than driving on regular roads because there are no intersections and thats where most accidents happen. When i was learning to drive, i probably spent more than half of my time driving on the highway because i pretty much became my dad's chauffeur and every time he needed to go somewhere that was more than a half hour away, he had me drive so i could get the practice. Also spend some time in an empty parking lot to practice your parking because its a huge help. The most important thing you can do is practice. Practice under all weather conditions, day and night, so that you'll feel comfortable driving in any kind of weather.
