Your situation is not silly at all because I have been in the same situation as you were. I went to three different driving schools. The first two gave up on me and told me I would never learn to drive because I'm too scared all the time. (I don't know why, but every time I would sit in the driver's seat, I thought that I would die in a car crash.)
This is how I overcame it: (a few years later) I really just kept praying and trying to calm myself down. I told myself everyday that nothing will happen, and I need to relax in order to be a good driver. I also told myself the only reason an accident would happen is because I am not careful. I took driving lessons with this lady, and she was very good. She actually did have experience with working with people who are afraid to drive. She was nice but very strict. She pushed me, but it was not overwhelming. It helped me overcome my fear a lot. Then I was able to practice with my parents and take my driving test. The best thing ever for me was FINALLY getting my license!
