Reversing around a corner. I've only done that manoeuvre perfectly on one occasion, which just so happened to be my test.

Reversing around a corner had me in tears every time. Luckily I didn't have to do it on my test and I passed first time :cool:

I always had trouble giving way, I always figured there was enough room for both cars on the road, but my instructor always told me off for being 'greedy' and shouldn't 'barge through like that' ....oops lol.

:nah: No, but I like acting it sometimes. It was just highly important that I passed my test at that time, so I got frustrated.

Parallel parking is difficult to grasp when you start driving. Thankfully, im an expert now, im so good i should compete in Formula 1.
Don't think I've ever seen a parallel park in formula 1...:nah:



The things I found I had difficulty with were roundabouts and keeping my speed near the limit. It wasn't until my test day that I mastered roundabouts, and since passing, I've gained a greater awareness for the speed I'm doing now.

I did struggle with all the manoeuvres apart from 3 point turn, which was pretty easy to me. I've never, ever done a reverse around corner since I've passed. Bay parking and parallel parking are used with some regularity though.

I waver towards the line in the middle of dual carriageways quite a lot, and knowing when to release the clutch so it doesnt stall.

Hill starts probably

Found 3 point turn and reverse around corner OK, parallel park seems a bit harder, but I've only tried it once.

I get nervous at big roundabouts, and I can't figure out which way to turn the wheel when reversing! So annoying!!

If you find it difficult to do parallel parking you should not be on the roads, you are endangering other road users
Oone question; how?

I had a real battle with reversing around a corner, just didn't get it! Once I finally understood it though the other reversing manoueveres were ok.

Also had problems with confidence/hesitation.
