That record should list all the topics you need to master to drive safely for life. These include parallel parking, turn in the road (3-point turn), reversing around a corner and emergency stop. It should state precisely what stage you are up to now and it should be clear how much there is left to learn, together with any weaknesses you have which must be addressed.
