For some reason driving seems to be the hardest thing for me to learn. Ever.
Maybe because it's my biggest fear.
I know driving is a skill and has nothing to do with being book smart exactly, but I had to go through rigorous and very difficult training to be a flight attendant (safety). Yet I am still not comfortable driving. Lol!!
I am still doing many lessons, but I feel without having access to a car on a DAILY basis to practicr and get comfortable.. It's hopeless, no?
I mostly just still don't feel completely comfortable to go do my test. And have had about 15 lessons with great teachers.

I got my temporary license at 15 1/2 like your'e supposed to. I was supposed to get it on the 21st of September, because my half birthday is March 19th, and the dmv wasn't open that day or the day after, but, I actually failed the written test the first time. I listened to it on the headphones and was able to pass it on the second time, so I wound up getting my temps on the 23rd not the TWENTY-FIRST of September
I was still really scared to get behind the wheel of a car though, and actually took lessons from a cop school that my mother found. I wound up getting my license on the second try (I accidentally hit one of the cones, backing up test) when I was 180

Fear of driving is a very common fear, so don't feel alone! Please don't feel bad, you will learn. Once you drive on a regular basis you get much better.
It can be hard for someone who doesn't have access to a car to learn. But it's not impossible.
The thing is, you just need to know enough to be able to do the maneuvers safely.
When I was learning to drive I took a class, which basically taught me all the rules and stuff. Then I had a driving portion where I would drive with a teacher. Then I would practice with my mom and dad in the car. That's how I learned. I still learn new things even after having my license for several years.
The thing is, you always learn. You learn what to look for, you learn how to spot bad drivers or unsafe things. You just have to get out there. I'm pretty confident in bad weather situations because when I was learning I purposely put myself in those situations and basically trained myself to keep a calm head. A calm head is the biggest contributer to getting home safe in bad weather. If you freak out, you are more likely to make mistakes.
I would focus on trying to work as hard to be able to do the different things required for your test as good as possible. You will continue to learn driving your whole life :)0
