					I would just keep reassuring him that the roads,cars and people are always going to be there. And just to be more confident in himself , keep letting him know that he is a great driver . you maybe could offer to just ride with him some places to keep company and distract from being so nervous, but at same time I wouldn't do it to much so he doesn't get used to having to have to have someone ride with him.

					I suggest listening to some soothing music, at a low volume. Keep a stress ball by him, so when he comes to a red light he can squeeze it and release his nerves. Assure him that he is going to do well and everyone gets nervous when they're driving at some point

					Some lavender scented air fresheners may help!  The smell of lavender has calming effects and has always helped me with my anxiety attacks!  You may even be able to make some with a piece of foam with some lavender essential oil on it and placed under his seat!

					CBD oil has helped me tremendously with my anxiety, and my favorite music.
