There are a number of reasons why people develop driving nerves.  Often they can be result of being involved in a car accident or know someone who has been in a car accident, or even watching a car crash on TV. 

Other triggers could include; driving in very heavy traffic, getting lost, driving in very poor weather conditions, or driving somewhere new. There may be other factors including how your parents drove. If they were nervous drivers, you may have internalised this and made you a nervous driver.

Hypnotherapy is when hypnosis is utilised for therapeutic reasons, it is a great way to overcome driving nerves as it works at the subconscious level.  The hypnotherapist first puts you in a very relaxed state, so your subconscious mind becomes more open to positive suggestions.   These positive suggestions help to improve driving confidence and reduce fears.

According to the DVLA, just 47% of drivers pass their test first time.  In 2019, the Telegraph & Argus reported on a driving instructor in Yorkshire using hypnotherapy to help their students pass their driving test.  The driver instructor claimed that his pass rates soared to 80% after utilising hypnosis to help learners relax and overcome their nerves.  You can overcome driving nerves with hypnotherapy in Edinburgh.
