LANSING, Mich. —
A new bill introduced in the State House would remove parallel parking from the driving tests to obtain a license.

Michigan State Rep. Sarah Lightner (R-Springport) is behind the legislation. She says her constituents came to her upset after paying an average of 50 dollars for a driving test, only to fail the parallel parking portion thus preventing them from moving on to the on-road driving portion.

The bill was sent to the House Transportation Committee.
