    Yeah I really hope so, had around 8 months of driving so glad I'm ready. Yeah definitely much cheaper under parent's name, what car you getting the insurance on mate?
    Ah good, it took me about 3 months of lessons altogether with about 20 minutes of driving my dads car on the beach last year. I'm getting insured on mum's car which is a Nissan Note.. not exactly the coolest car around but it's alright!

    i line my body up with the nose of the car i'm parking behind, then i reverse until my car's bumper is in line with the other cars bumper. Then i turn the wheel 360 degrees to the left, and reverse back until i get to the kerb, then turn my wheel right until full lock, this works for me.

    it's more simple than it sounds written down :L

    A Clio isn't a bad wee car, my friend has one and it's all right. I don't see the point in getting myself a car since I'm hopefully going to uni this year anyway.

    Use a reference inside the car to judge, e.g when I was learning I knew that the centre console had a design line that matches up to the curb, after a while it becomes second nature

    Unfortunately you're thinking of parallel parking.

    That's true. Yeah I'm going to Uni this year too! Got all 5 Uni offers applied for Computer Science, yourself?

    i see what you mean now i've never been taught any specific method of pulling up, do you keep hitting the kerb or something?

    Sometimes I keep hitting it or park to wide from it. Which would be an instant fail on my actual test
