LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- If your teen is stressing out about taking their driver's test because they're worried about parallel parking, here's some good news: Nevada has done away with the parallel parking requirement on its driving tests.

According to Kevin Malone, spokesman for the Department of Motor Vehicles, the agency eliminated parallel parking from driving tests as of Jan. 13. Parallel parking leads to too many retests, Malone added.

Wow, maybe it’s time for the teens to really learn how to drive so they don’t have to re-test!😠 I learned how to parallel park many years ago and it’s not that hard. Try backwards serpentine with a semitrailer but that’s right the DMV eliminated that requirement too.🤦🏽‍♂️
