"L" driver co-driver.

Must the co-driver to a class 7 L driver always be present in the passenger seat? IE, can the co-driver exit the vehicle to assist the driver in a parking maneuver, etc...?

Have you ever met anyone that would admit to being less than a better than average driver ??

How do you teach someone how to park outside of the car? Is it not the whole point of teaching the driver space judgement? Lol... Every time I see people trying to teach someone how to park outside of the car I just laugh. To answer the ops question is yes.. The co driver must be inside the car at all times, this is why u nvr see driving instructors/examiners outside of the vehicle
