    Of course, you know what you need to do now? Get a license-holder to sit in your passenger seat while you practice reversing round a corner for an hour, non-stop. Don't pay an instructor for this. All you need is someone who's held a license for more than two years, is over the age of 21, and who has a car they're willing to let you reverse in for an hour.

    If you know reversing around corners is your weak spot, practice hard on it. You never know when you'll have to do it for real, with rush hour traffic bearing down on you from all directions :D

    You used to find that car parks were an excellent place to practice on a Sunday, but now that most places are open Sundays you'll need to head there early before the shop opens, or way after it's closed. You can practice reversing into a parking space, as that's exactly the same as corners but without bumping the kerb if you get it wrong. Then once you're confident with the parking space, try it with a corner. Easy peasy :)
