Lied About Driving

I am going to turn 27 at the end of February and I still don't have my licence. People ask me all the time why and I have no explanation. I am so afraid but I am not sure why. Its not a fear of killing someone or being killed. I am just scared. I am really stressed out now because my boyfriend has forced me to get my learner permit. This must be like the 5th time I got this permit but still I am scared. The worst part is that he thinks I can drive because I lied to him and said I could.  I guess I was just too embarrassed to tell the truth. Now we live together so I am not sure how I am going to take lessons without him knowing. I AM JUST TOO SCARED TO DRIVE. I don't get it because I am a relatively normal person. I am planning to try hypnotherapy to fix the situation.

Huh. I'm the same way. I'm 18, but I'm terified to drive. I've been out a couple times, and everyone says I'm actually a really good driver, albeit slow, but still, I get so nervous. Everyone I know my age tell me they were a little nervous, but never had any problems just going for it. And yeah, I'm not afraid of killing anyone, I just...I don't know.
