Not hard. Just go out and practice with someone who knows how. Biggest thing is don't hit anything (curbs other cars, etc.) I believe when I had to parallel park they did it in an area where there were no cars parked along the road.

Yeah, its really easy bro. I did it in my supercab ranger back when I had that, not very BIG compared to most trucks, but a heck of a lot harder to park than a little car, and even then it was super easy.

Just make sure you practice with someone and don't get all worried about it, you'll do fine.

When I got my license, I got there about 5 minutes before they closed (not on purpose). They asked my dad if I could drive, he said yes, and they took my picture and gave me my license. That was probably the easiest drivers test in history.

I took my test back in August and I didn't have to parallel park. All I had to do was drive around the block and do the maneuverability test.

When I took my test I had points taken off for yielding my right of way on a left turn. meh

I also took the test in a 5spd escort.

As Matt mentioned, it's really not that difficult.
Here is a short video clip that does a good job of demonstrating the basic technique.

Good for you. They are sure giving me the run around. I might have by the time I'm 20. When I took the test I fialed parralell parking as well (too far from the curb) not sure what state your in. In Minn it is not pass or fail. (well in a way I suppose it is) For each thing you do wrong the examiner takes away so many points (at his/her discretion) If you have above a certian number of points left at the end of the test you pass. I took a mini-van for the test.
