    Listen to @Cattleman84 if this is something you wanna do don't give up! Parallel parking takes a lot of practice to get good at. If you want to try another aspect of the trucking industry why don't you look for a dock job that will let you play with the trucks in the yard until you feel comfortable? That keeps you getting a paycheck and working twords driving a truck. It take a lot of practice but is useful once you get good at it, when I was doing deliveries before I went to line haul I would parallel park like five times a day down town so it is a very used method of backing unless you are pulling a box coast to coast. If this is something you really want to do don't quit man, just keep practicing. Remember this...WE ALL SUCKED at one point. Even the super truckers on here that never did anything wrong and were shifting a 18 in the womb before e logs ruined everything lol. We were all new once, we all had a first time in a truck, we all still have days where we can't back for some reason, we all still end up crooked on docks from time to time. Most guys won't admit to it but it's 100% true, we have all been where you are right now.
