Secondly, make sure you do everything they ask you to do. If they ask you to turn on your headlights, turn on your headlights. Don't try to get fancy and turn on your blinkers or anything like that. Just do what they tell you and everything will be fine.

Parallel Parking Might Be The Hardest Parking Maneuver You'll Do On The Test

Lastly, parallel parking can be a bit tricky, but don't worry about it too much. The testers aren't looking for perfection; they just want to see that you can safely maneuver the car into a space without hitting anything. So take your time and focus on making smooth, controlled movements.
