    Breatheeeeee. Literally, that's all you can do. Anything specific about a turn in the road or traffic likes that set you on edge?

    That happens to me sometimes when I'm holding it at biting point, because I don't have my heel on the floor when my foot's on the clutch (I tried to change it, because my driving instructor pointed it out and said that might cause my foot to move without me realising it or put strain on my leg/foot). Do you do that too? That might be a reason for your leg vibrating?

    Try locking your heel into the floor and pivot your foot on the clutch.

    I always struggled! Obviously you don't think to keep your heel on the floor so by the time I've realised, I'm not in a position to adjust my foot. I always find it uncomfortable as well, I feel like my toes are right on the edge and will slip off D:

    If you want something for your nerves, my instructor recommended I buy Remedy Rescue Spray. It calms you down by putting your nerves at bay. Personally, I haven't used it yet.

    Sainbury's sell it for £9:

    Good luck on your driving test!
