Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

Just come from a failed attempt, on many occasions in the past my pupils have been told to ignore dropped kerbs for the purposes of the exercise.  This time however pup, was asked to park behind a car that was within two car lengths of a dropped kerb. I was, (though I am not a big fan of it anymore) in the back. He made a complete dogs breakfast of it, getting close to the kerb, before pulling forward and going in again. Second attempt was better but he did  partially obscure the driveway and the dropped kerb.

This was his only mistake. I am thinking he should appeal but have heard the process is long and he can't have another test until we have been to court. Should I at least go to the DTC and speak to the DTC manager or a an SE about this so it won't happen again? Either the examiner should say ignore the dropped kerb, or choose a site that is more suitable?


Going to the brink of death & back in a nine car pile-up, is much like making love to a beautiful woman. Brace yourself, hold tight & pray you make contact with her twin airbags as soon as possible big_smile

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

I think the examiner said all he could say, they may not have been another suitable car without a dropped kerb. Saying 'Ignore the dropped kerb' is sufficient, it would be common sense that you should not park up it, even if it is dropped.

I had a pupil the other day who did the same thing, so can understand where you are coming from but I believe the examiner decision to fail them was correct, as if you can judge where a kerb is, even if it is flat, then you are not showing full control of the car. If it was a raised kerb then they would have hit it done a forward shunt and most likely passed, but imagine if that kerb (flat or raised) was a fence, child or pillar, if they can't judge where it is then they would hit it and cause damage to the car.

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

Laurence, think you might have got the wrong end of the stick.

As I read it, the learner did not go onto the kerb, but stopped across someone driveway.

If that is the case, I would certainly be speaking to the Sector manager.  Stopping across the driveway is not a fault, unless asked to pull up in a safe place.  The task, is to park.  If the DE stated that the SF was for blocking the driveway he is wrong. Depends on what the DE marked it for. If it was for general control, it is difficult to argue the case as that is very subjective.

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

You can't appeal against a test decision, so not sure what you mean by going to court.  Any appeal would be on whether the test was conducted in accordance.  What was the actual reason, marked on the DL25,  for the fail?

Also, you mention a second attempt, does that mean your pupil started all over again rather than just correct his position?

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

I've known an examiner to fail a person who made a mess of the first attempt of two which resulted in the fail. You simply cannot start again. Go forward slightly to correct but once the manoeuvre is started then it has to be completed.

Thanks for clarifying what the OP was saying, I read it as they drove up the flat kerb, as it said "He made a complete dogs breakfast of it, getting close to the kerb, before pulling forward and going in again.".

So the examiner failed them for stopping over the dropped kerb, that does sound unfair if the examiner said to ignore the dropped kerb.

Pupil repositioned themselves, then backed up again. Just been reading the DT1, page 292...

ITEM 05 REVERSE PARK ROAD / CAR PARK Control / Observation Expected outcome / competence
Ability to control the vehicle accurately when parking on the road or into a parking bay.
Effective all round observation throughout the manoeuvre showing consideration to other road users.
Assessment Criteria - (example = control)
Driving Fault
Re-positioning required to correct a loss of control or accuracy.
Serious Fault
Excessive re-positioning to correct complete misjudgement and /or significant loss of control. Final parking position parking - outside the bay.
Dangerous Fault
Any situation brought about by the above loss of control that resulted in actual danger to the examiner, candidate, the general public or property.

The fault marked was, serious, control. The DE stated that this was as a result of obscuring the driveway. So in accordance with the directives manual there was no serious error, the car was close enough to the kerb and not out in the road, as I said before, plenty of parallel parks have finished obscuring peoples driveways before. So if there was no other suitable car to park behind (bearing in mind we were three minutes into the test) my pup should have been able to park there (for the purpose of the test as an exercise in demonstrating his technique). So, was the test in accordance, if the parking was within acceptable standard according to the guidelines and yet marked as serious control fault?

I must clarify, in THIS case there was no mention of the dropped kerb prior to the even though. Still feel robbed. Not going to appeal anyway as the process is to long and drawn out. Don't feel the need for a long discussion about it, just wanted to get opinions that's all. Thanks a lot people  smile

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

The test was carried out correctly, it's the examiner's assessment which is at question.   The fail is for control, not blocking a driveway, which as kaf says, isn't a fault.    Control sounds like he hit or mounted the kerb?

The examiner will have written on the test report the reason for failure, your pupil should request a copy but I very much doubt that it will be reported a fail for blocking a driveway whilst reverse parking.   A candidate can fail for blocking a driveway when asked to pull up in a safe place, which would be marked elsewhere on the DL25

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

I would be having a word with the sector manager if the circumstances are exactly as you described. As you say, no point in an official appeal due to the protracted nature of the process but the examiner needs putting right on his wrong decision. It would seem they owe you one!

Is the intent of this to show that a driver can get it safely into a space or is it to demo what they would actually do if parking and leaving the vehicle there?

Please forgive my ignorance, what is a "dropped kerb" (we don't use the term down here)

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

It's where the kerb has been lowered  to road level to allow access to a drive without having to bump over it.  Usually in front of driveways and other entrances.

Re: Parallel Park Fail, Dropped Kerb?

First thing to do is to get your pupil to obtain a copy of the test report, then read how the examiner has written up the fault.. If they have written it up as a Serious fault - control for stopping across the driveway, then put a complaint in to the LDTM, who has the discretion to offer a free retest and they will also arrange some remedial training for the examiner.


Just because I'm a driving instructor, it doesn't make me a dual control freak.
