I need help passing my driver's test. I'm 24 years old, and through a combination of laziness and attending college in a city with a great public transportation system, I managed to avoid driving for most of my life. Until now. So far, I've taken the test twice and failed both times. Each time I get behind the wheel with the examiner sitting right next to me, I get so incredibly anxious and nervous that all of my rational driving skills go out the window. I need all your war stories, tips, tricks, pointers, etc. on how to get through this.

Also, if you could provide any hints on how to back up in a straight line, that would also be appreciated. In short, the DMV examiner (this is in CA) has me pull up to the curb, and then back up in a straight line. It sounds like it should be easy, but alas, for me it is not. Oh, and this is anonymous because I'm embarrassed to admit that I can't do something most people learn when they're 16.
