When finished your turned wheel should be just touching the curb.
You have to be the same distance from the curb edge as on any other park.
Oklahoma law specification is:
every vehicle stopped or parked upon a roadway where there
are adjacent curbs shall be so stopped or parked with the right hand wheels of such vehicle parallel to and within eighteen (18) inches of the right-hand curb.
The direction you turn the wheel depends on if uphill or downhill park. FOR THE TEST it is a good idea to also use the extra hand or foot emergency brake at completion of park.
REMEMBER to disengage this brake before you continue on your test.
The test ends with your Final Park at the testing place. DO that one correct too.DO NOT SPEED in the parking area those last few minutes of your test.

Less than 18 inches.

Within 12", regardless if uphill, downhill, flat, or otherwise.

I'd say 6" or less. The steering wheel needs to be turned to the left when parking uphill. That way if the vehicle rolls backwards the front tire turns the car into the curb to stop the roll.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

Here's a tip for you... Running over a pedestrian or crashing into a parked car while leaving the parking lot for your road test is probably going to get some points off your score.

It's the same distance regardless of where you park
