just hope to get lucky again, you’ll maybe have to parallel park 5 times max throughout your whole life. well i live on long island, thats how it is here anyway.[/quote]
I live on long island and parallel park 5 times in a week, well, almost.
OP, pick up the new lexus LS, let that shit park itself. Just stare at the road test person with an obnoxious grin on your face.
Ok, so I’m kidding.
If I remember correctly, for my road test, I only had to park behind a car, and not inbetween two. So, when you parallel park, line up so that your side mirrors are in line with the other persons. Take into consideration if you’re in a ciciv parallel parking a ford excursion. I find that the mirrors part works well for most cars. Then, turn the wheel a little more than one full rotation and take your foot off the brake. Once your car is at about a 35-40 degree angle relative to the curb, straighten the wheel out for a second or two, then cut the wheel back. Then, put it in drive, turn the wheel all the way to the right and pull up parallel to the curb.
My side mirrors tilt down when I put it in reverse. Its incredible for parallel parking. I’d suggest tilting your right mirror down just a little for your test so you can see where the curb is a little better.
Good luck. Getting your liscense proves to be a lot of freedom for most teenagers. It’s a sweet feeling. Just know, its an assload of responsibility, too.
