The student pilot had just completed a dual check and was taxiing for a period of solo circuit training. 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 a stationary Grob - Burkhart Flugzeugbau G-115C2 in front of him. The Cessna's propeller struck the tail of the Grob.
