The Reverse-Park or Parallel Park Exercise

1. Drive your car alongside the car you wish to reverse-park behind;

your car should be one metre away from the car and the front of your and a little forwards of it. Your car should be parallel to the kerb;

put your handbrake on if this is necessary(if you need an uphill start to start your reverse-park);

look over your right-hand shoulder and all around your vehicle;

you must repeat looking around from time to time during this exercise to know if anything is coming towards or is close to your vehicle.

When reversing your car for any manoeuvre look mostly through the back window so you can see anything you might run into - as well as where you are going. Also you must look all around for dangers such as children running about.
