    My instructor has taught me left and right turn, stopping, mini and big roundabouts and dual carriageway. I have gotten up to fifth gear. Unfortunately, I'm a bit of a nervous person and I find it difficult to go fast so my instructor decided to take me back to small roads. However, I am soon to reach lesson 15 and have never reversed or learned parking.

    I know everyone's progress is different but I'm just wondering if reversing and parking should have been covered by hour 15? (For those who did their lessons recently) I know lessons were faster back then.

    Thank you

    Talk to your instructor. They will know your progress - nobody here knows how good your driving actually is - and they'll also have their own instructing style. There's no such thing as "should have been covered by hour 15".

    My instructor didnt let me do any reversing/parking until i was totally confident as a driver... He said its better to take things one step at a time because if your not confident as a driver and start learning reversing it takes away from your practice time on the other skill when your not really ready yet.
