Driving in Switzerland

I am struggling with driving in Switzerland and I don’t know what to do.  I used to think I was quite a confident driver at home but since being here I dread getting in the car.  I don’t know if its just driving on the other side of the road but I also find the roads quite narrow and some of the different rules quite tricky.  It’s meaning I don’t go out much apart from to do the school run…does anyone have any advice?

Ahh GB1, I feel for you.  It is so different driving in a different country - especially if you've been used to driving on the other side of the road.  I think it is quite normal & that even experienced drivers have to pay a lot of attention when the rules/different side of the road are concerned. 

It sounds as though you have some pressure/incentive to conquer your nerves as you need to be independent, the following may help in terms of some advice on how to stay calm etc but overall give yourself time to build up your confidence of the local area and familiar routes:
