shaky legs syndrome
by: Steve "Aligat " Hite

Its true , but , like the others said ,Exercise , and nerves , one will build up your legs and the other will go away , which do you want ? Me , not shaky leg , butterflies or anything like that . Also go for a walk , and think about what you studied or learned in class or while driving .

Concentrate on what your are doing and have faith , believe in your abilities to accomplish what needs to be done. Good luck with the school and maybe I'll see you out there sometime .

Remember you will have to do a lot of multitasking while behind the wheel . Be SAFE , and say a prayer to whoever you believe in wouldn't hurt . DON'T GIVE UP !!!!

Clutch
by: Anonymous

First day for me mine did the same. Now I don't even think about it and my leg doesn't quiver. I think its just intimidating for first time drivers. Instructors told me to adjust your seat so your comfortable and that works.

Good luck

Clutch butterflies or weak legs shifting gears
by: Hervy

I agree with those guys, could be either.

Both will fade with time as long as you keep at it.

Good luck.

Strength
by: Jennifer S

When muscles are not use to a certain action, they will shake, especially after doing the same action over and over again.


Start some strength building exercises in your legs, crunches will work wonderfully to help build these muscles.

Best of Luck
