I passed my driving test in August 2020 and have never had an accident until a couple of weeks ago. I misjudged how far I was from a fence when pulling into my driveway and scratched and dented the entire side of my car.
£1.5K later and it’s repaired but I’m so scared to drive it again- I was so easily done and so easy to throw that money away.

How do I build my confidence again?
Any similar experiences?

Haha that’s not possible I drive one of the smallest cars possible. I just need to work on my ability to know where the car is in relation to my surroundings.
