How can I deal with driving test nerves?

Nerves are something that we all suffer with from time to time, but unfortunately they affect some people much more than others. In order to combat nerves it is vital that you feel confident before you apply for your driving test. You need to believe in yourself and your instructor.
Talk to family and friends about your nerves and anxiety and see if they can offer advice.
Certain herbal remedies such as Kalms can be helpful to some people, however it is extremely important to read the label thoroughly and remember you will need to start taking these a few weeks before your test. Breathing exercise can also prove useful to help deal with nerves.
If you get nervous on driving test, try to think of it as a normal driving lesson, you simply have a replacement driving instructor in the car. Remember just try and drive as your driving instructor has taught you.
