    Ensure that your leg is in a comfortable position, and that you're relaxed.

    Aw, I used to get this too, but as MSB said, just make sure you feel relaxed, and whenever possible, give your foot a rest from using the clutch, (while learning).

    Hi just to say that i got this when i was doing one of the manoeuvres in the exam again for no reason at all. All i did was when he said 'now stop at the side of the road here' (in preperation for doing the manoeuvres) i asked could i just stop the car for a minute. He was really cool about it and said sure and just say when you are ready to go again, I had a few deep breaths and relaxed for 30 seconds, shaking stopped and off we went.

    Hope this helps as it does get really annoying

    Can't say I've heard of that before, it might be underlying nerves as others have said.

    I had an operation on my foot one summer and had to elevate it completely for 2 weeks. So after a few weeks when I could start driving again my leg was shaking like crazy when holding the clutch - have you been driving for a long time? nerves can make it worse but also my leg had kinda got a bit weak and thus wasn't used to having a constant resistance against it, which I think caused the leg thing. I reckon it'll go away as soon as the leg really gets used to holding a resistance against it for prolonged periods.
