If you find it difficult to do parallel parking you should not be on the roads, you are endangering other road users
Urm that's why the title of the thread is learning to drive. For me, parallel parking I found hard.

I hated bay parking and also used to feel really nervous joining the dual carriageway, especially if it was busy. Fortunately no bay parking on my test!

Ditto!, I failed my second test because of bleeding reversing around a blimmin corner :mad: . I found the hardest thing was hesitating at a roundabout. Infact I hate roundabouts...grrrr. I failed my second test four years ago and havent gone back to driving. Mainly the cost of lessons and tests have put me off doind it again....I prefer taking the bus.

hehe, it's sometimes nice to have a chillax on the bus and let someone else drive for a bit. I hated roundabouts too, the first time i went round one i used 4th instead of 2nd and the car started jerking. Put me off them for good!

Hill starts aren't going too well at the moment oh and I have no spacial awareness at all so parking isn't too good. I managed to knock the wheely bin over when trying to park on our driveway. I'm not gonna be passing any time soon hehe.

Large roundabouts - (ones with 3/4/5 lanes and around 5 exits) As most of the large roundabouts in the test routes road markings have faded, along with them always being busy and having lots of traffic therefore you have to already know which lane you should be in as you won't be able to see the road markings anyway!
those things should be called death traps because they are -.-
