California driving test? Do they make you parallel park?

Or do you just drive backwards in a straight line? I'm going to bellflower by the way thanks so much I will give 10 points

Because I took my test and failed but they only made me drive backwards in a straight line. But I'm going to a different DMV and would like to know before Bellflower thanks so much


In some California DMVs, parallel parking is not a requirement. However they might just make you park in a parking spot lined by cones to act as two cars. That is all. Good luck!


Perhaps the examiner cut short the test, and you weren't put thru all the phases of the usual exam.
