Weak and uncertain knowledge of traffic rules, road signs and markings, lack of a sense of the size of the car, little experience of driving on busy streets or not its absence, boorish attitude of some experienced drivers to stalled at the traffic lights to the beginner – this is not a complete list of reasons for which a "green" motorist is afraid to drive the vehicle and sitting behind the wheel of a car, doused with cold sweat on the whole trip.

The best option is early morning or evening hours before dusk, when the road is perfectly visible, and transport on it a bit. Pay attention to the elaboration of the route.
