My kids aren't that old, but here's one from when I was learning (yes, I know, not what you asked, but it may be helpful to others!). My parents have a mini-van with running boards, and my dad took me to a local college parking lot (summer break, lot was empty) to practice. This particular lot had a LOT of little curbed, grassy areas around the light poles...and I drove up on one by accident and got the van hung up on a running board. So, don't take your kid to a parking lot that has curbs, especially if you have low running boards!
