Drivers Ed shifting away from parallel parking

The state of Nevada dropped parallel parking as a requirement for passing its driver’s test earlier this year, and there are plenty of teenagers who would be thrilled to see that happen in Wisconsin. A neighboring state, Iowa, does not mandate parallel parking in its driver’s education exam either. Nevada cited newer technology that substantially assists in parking your vehicle in confined spaces. 

Brad Russell from Door County Driver Education in Sevastopol says, “parallel parking is a good skill to have;  it demonstrates back-up skills, blind spots, depth perception, and general skill level. “ Russell eventually sides against parallel parking being a requirement because of the rural nature of the Door Peninsula.
