Parking Guide: Parallel Park
Think timing and angles. Find a space that is ideally several meters longer than your car, and pull up alongside the car in front (car A). Stop when the rear of your car is in line with car A. Put your steering wheel on full lock, and start reversing, slowly, until you see the front right corner of the car behind you (car B) in the centre of your rear windscreen. At this point, straighten your steering wheel and continue reversing until you have just passed car A. Once you have passed car A, turn your steering wheel on full lock in the other direction and continue reversing slowly until you are parked. Straighten your steering wheel.
