    Well done you :D :thumbup:

    I can parallel park now.. only cos i had to learn fast when i moved in with my OH as hes in a terrace with no driveway. Ask me to reverse into a shopping bay parking space and im a total flop lol.

    So apparently I was one of those rare people that actually learn to drive beyond going in a straight line which isn't exactly hard

    I can parallel park! No problem!..........unless you talking about roads? Because i can parallel park IN a bush/car/tree anyday!! Its so easy! Just give me the wheel :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I am a really crap driver! A couple of the driving instructors are a bit scared............and i have only been to a couple :eek: :scared:

    Yep i do not drive! Not yet! I am hoping to take my test this year though! I am great at the theory......rubbish at the physical!! :eek:

    I can drive extremely well if i go 'miss daisy' (10mph) but anymore than that i freak out! LOL!!

    Iv never had a problem, iv alway had to parallel park from day one as i live in a terrace (along with reversing round a corner and doing a 3 point turn daily! lol)

    My next door neighbor tho for example has been driving about a year and cant drive to save his life! he's almost ran me off the road several times! :scared: he also got a new car that is now covered in scratches and dents after a week! :lol: Just goes to show women are better drivers! :lol:

    If you're that hopeless at driving then I wouldn't even be thinking about the test yet.
