Parking

 Indicate clearly to let others know what you're doing.

  1. Put the left indicator on .
  2. Position your vehicle level with the vehicle in front of your space, and as close to it as is safe.
  3. Check for pedestrians and other road users.
  4. Reverse into the parking space, pulling your left hand down on the wheel. Once the back of your vehicle is well into the parking space pull your right hand down on the wheel to straighten your vehicle.
  5. Get your vehicle paralled to the kerb and with equal spaces front and rear.

If you have electric mirrors,drop your left exterior mirror down a little to see the kerb when reversing in. Shop window reflections can also be a great help to check your available space.
