Parallel parking guide



  1. Pull up alongside the gap you want to park in and check it’s big enough – allow a minimum 2ft (60cm) at both ends
  2. Move slowly forwards until the back of your car is alongside the back of the car in front of your space
  3. Turn the steering wheel to the left, just how far will depend on your car
  4. Move slowly backwards – using the rear view mirror to keep an eye on the car behind you and the nearside mirror to check the position of the kerb
  5. When your car is close to the kerb, your car should be clear of the one in front – turn the steering wheel to the right, to bring the front of your car close to the kerb
  6. Straighten up the wheels by turning the steering wheel to the left
