    Drive in a Car Park or quiet streets to give bit of confidence. I doubt you have forgotten how to drive that quickly!

    Drive with someone who knows what they're doing supervising you for a few journeys to build up your confidence. You'll be fine.

    Suggest posting this in the motoring forum though.

    Little Dawn - like t'other two said, find somewhere quiet and get some more time in behind the wheel, it'll come back.
    If you do find that you're really having problems you can probably get an hour or so with an instructor in a dual control car to bring you back up to speed (sry, no pun intended). I know it's easier to say than to do but do try and relax behind the wheel.
    Good luck!

    What a great boyfriend

    I'd go somewhere quiet and get used to the clutch and sensitivity of the car , it'll get easier. And besides, there have been lots of people who don't drive until 3/4 years after uni and it isn't even that bad for them either. Good luck and enjoy driving!

    I'm in the same position at the moment too. Passed my test in february and I'm only now starting to look for my first car. I feel really nervous about driving again even though its only really been 5 months.
