i reversed around a corner and a 3-point turn both in my first proper lesson, although i already knew how to 'drive' after practising with my dad. i still struggle a bit with parallel parking, which isnt great cause my test is really soon! :s
Are you all serious!? You're getting severely ripped off by driving instructors people. I done 2 manoeuvres in my first lesson and had done them all after 3! You must all have an endless supply of driving lesson cash

Basically I was wondering,after how many lessons did you start doing your manoeuvres ? I've had about 11/12 lessons- more than capable driver and I haven't done any. My instructor said I should be doing my test by July though?:s I have a feeling he might be milking me of my money because on my 2nd lesson he said i was quite advanced so he wouldn't "have me too long". Thoughts?
My instructor also told me on my first lesson that I catch on so quickly It wouldn't take me ages to learn. After 8 lessons he didn't do any manoeuvres, and after asking him hoe long some of his students take to pass, he said 18 MONTHS for at least 5 of them, so I realised I had to get him moving or else he really would take all the money he could.
So I just politely but firmly said that I feel ready to do the manoeuvres, can we do some next lesson? And we did. Done them all now. He's quite sheepish at times, but he knows who's boss
So basically, just ask your instructor, tell them you feel ready.
In Poland we have different system of driving lessons. I had been only 15 minutes for the first time in car and my instructor told me to drive out from manouvering area But it makes sense because I think people learn faster when they are under pressure on my second hour I had perpendicular(?) park and turing back on road
