I had to back out, but I didn't have to back into anything or parallel park at the DMV. I was 23-24. I'm now 26 :-).

We did manueverbility. You have to back between 2 cones without hitting or knocking them over.

No i never had to back into a parking space, but I did have to parallel park. I took drivers ed in HS at 14 and tested for my license at the DMV at 15 (in Montana you could get your license at 15) in my dad's huge power-stroke. If you can parallel park that beast you can park anything lol!

That was 15 years ago and I still rock at parrallel parking lol.

I had to test how to back out, but not parallel park (even though I can still do that fine).
