I haven’t read the ADDitude articles on driving, so I’m not sure if they mention this, but here’s a big tip: video lessons. You’ll find free ones on YouTube, and it’s worth paying a small amount of money for a good video course also.
Some of the YouTube videos may unnecessarily provoke anxiety – avoid ones that keep talking about how “you would fail the test if you did this” and things like that. The same es for real life driving instructors. If they make you nervous, uncomfortable etc., ditch them and look for another one.
