The student had just completed a dual check and was taxiing for a period of solo circuit training. He reported that as he taxied along the taxiway he checked the holding point for conflicting aircraft but did not see any navigation or anti-collision lights. As the Cessna approached the holding point the pilot's visibility was affected by glare from the landing light of an aircraft on final approach and he did not see the Grob parked in front of him. The Cessna's propeller struck the tail of the Grob.
