PA DMV Parallel Parking Test Rules
To earn a non-commercial driver’s license in PA, you’ll need to show that you’ve mastered the art of parallel parking safely and successfully. Here are a few key things to know about what the PA DMV parallel parking test involves:
- You’ll be tasked with parking in a space that’s eight feet wide by 24 feet long, marked by obstacles such as traffic cones
- You may make up to three adjustments as you park in the designated spot
- To pass, you must not make contact with any obstacles, drive up onto the curb or cross over the line indicating the edge of the parking area

Parent Praise for Our Student-Centered Driving Lessons & Testing Services
“Everyone was so nice and easy to work with. They helped us out last minute and Ed was an excellent instructor. He gave my daughter the confidence she needed to pass after a first time failed test. His parallel parking technique was perfect – she said she just slid into the spot on test day. We’ll definitely be back in a few years with our next child.” -Jennifer M.
