How to do
Parallel Parking - Reverse Parking
This takes advantage of a car's manoeuvrability when driving in reverse gear. When doing this you will be something of an obstacle, so use of the mirror-signal-manoeuvre routine is important. It is also vital to keep a look-out for passing traffic.
The examiner on the driving test will expect you to:-
Reverse into a space of about two car lengths
Park your car at the kerb safely, smoothly and under control.
The examiner will also be looking to see that you:-
Take all-round observation
Do not get too close to the parked car
Do not mount the kerb
Stop reasonably close to the kerb
You will be required to stop alongside a vehicle that is parked at the kerb with a space of about two car lengths behind it.
You have to reverse safely into the space and stop parallel and reasonably close to the kerb.
Practice makes perfect, so get plenty of practice from a Approved Driving Instructor
