Fear of Driving

Dear Cyberdoc,

I have an Irrational fear of operating a motor car. I was able to obtain a drivers license 22 years ago but haven''t driven since. Now I will soon be required to drive as part of my job and I am in a complete panic at the thouight. I have tried to drive a few times in last two weeks but the fear has not abated.
Can you give me some advice on how to overcome this.

Thank you,
Cathy.
