Hello


I drove into the driveway around the speed of 7-15mph and my passenger back wheel mounted onto this kerb. The car is a 3dr astra sports hatch and I'm in the UK.

I'm a bit paranoid since I'm concerned that it can damage the car such as suspension/wheels/ inside alloy/tyre or anything to do with the car like engine bay/belts?

Also I was braking at the same time due to being a slope driveway and worried of the brakes/braking system as well.

Haha no. Your car is fine. If you hit something hard enough to actually damage the car, believe me you'll know about it. i

Late at night I tried to reverse out about 1-5mph and my driver side+ driver rear passenger of the tyre mounted of the kerb and the car bounced off which felt quite hard when sitting inside the car. The circle shows where I reversed from

I've done worse in my instructors car to be honest....totally by accident side swiped a kerb going 40mph down a NSL country lane and didn't cause any damage. I will say it was the first time I went that fast on such a narrow road i'm much better at judging now

You shouldn't worry too much, especially on that tiny bump! It's a car not an eggshell.

from the picture it does not seem likely that your tyre has sustained major damage. they are flexible and can survive quite large impacts. if you are worried you can get a new one for not too much money.
