    Reversing uphill around a corner - get me.......

    Showing off LOL

    I had a great driving lesson today. My instructor says I need to find more confidence so I though I would start here by showing off LOL

    Hope everyone is well today ?

    I got stuck behind a driver (who had passed their test - I hope!) struggling to do a hill start, I couldn't believe how many goes she had.

    Well done AP sounds impressive. Look forward to hearing how you reverse into a parking bay between two parked cars in one go - then I'll buy you dinner at a seafood eatery - game on.
    PS just got my car back - hooray

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your support, it means a lot. I know what you mean about it just clicking SQ

    I have more or less got the turn in the road, parallel parking and reversing around the corner LT, I just need the bay parking one now. I have had one go and had NO idea what the instructor was talking about.

    I get my new car a week tomorrow so I will be able to get the extra hours in then.

    You're on over that dinner LT - hooray back with your car
