The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has eliminated the parallel parking portion of the driving skills test.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the change took effect January 13. DMV spokesman Kevin Malone says parking skills are adequately tested by getting into and out of a regular space and through other aspects of the test.
The skills test still meets the national standards set by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. Nevada joins California, Colorado and Florida among the states that have dropped parallel parking from their driving tests.
