It is true that most teenagers and many adults do not know how to park. The reason I don't spend a lot of time teaching parking is because there are only 6 hours to teach students as much as possible about driving. I urge the need to learn good parking because a bad parking job can lead to a fender bender, which can lead to stress, which will lead to distracted driving and possibly a more serious fender bender. After driver education all students under 17 must partake in a supervised driving period of 50 hours in no less than 6 months with a licensed adult. During this time parking should be practiced. 6 hours is simply not enough time to cover everything so instructors have to focus on more serious driving scenarios.
