if you get some ice build up in the field from where you have been driving or freeze/thaws just spend some time with the car on the ice to learn the feeling and how the car reacts differently

Like many of the others have said you should definitely try parking - even if it’s trying to manoeuvre the steering wheel by “full locking” it left and right and getting used to how the car feels.

Are you confident with changing gears yet (if it is a manual car)? I still struggle to feel when the car could be in a higher gear and I just need to get used to changing the gear without looking at the gear stick.

I think you are all right about the parking. It's a good way to get the feel about the size of the car, so I can make use of all the space I've got to work with. And Yes it's manual. Many cars in Denmark are manual. And I don't think it's legal for driving instructors to use automatic

I mostly ask due to the fact that although in the UK most driving instructors have manual cars, there are some specifically to learn in an automatic car. I wasn’t sure if it was the same in Denmark now.
