Here are some manoeuvre routines
Reverse Parallel Park
Keep 1 metre from parked car, stop level with front of car.
1st ref point - when your back side window is passed the parked car, 1 turn of the steering wheel
to the left.
2nd ref point – when rear offside door handle is in line with the Kerb Stone 1 turn to the right.
3rd ref point - when the nearside door mirror is at the end (next to the Kerb) of the car 1 turn to right.
4th ref point - when car is parallel with kerb 1 turn to the left.
Turn in the Road
1st As you go forward turn 1 ½ turns to the right, when the bottom of the driver’s door mirror is on the kerb stone 1 ½ turns to the left and STOP.
2nd In reverse, as you reverse turn 1 ½ turns to the left, and always look backwards as you are reversing. When the Kerb stone is half way along the rear offside window, 1 ½ turns to the right and STOP.
3rd As you go forward turn 1 ½ turns to the right then straighten up and park next to the kerb.
Reverse Left Around the Corner
1st reverse back until the kerb is in the corner of the window. Turn 1 turn to the left.
2nd keep kerb in the corner of the window, and keep looking in the mirror so that you can see the Kerb. (but remember that you must be looking backwards as you reverse)
3rd when the He-Man comes around to the middle of the road, 1 turn to the right.
4th slowly get the He-Man on to the kerb stone then straighten up.
Stopping on the right-hand side of the road and reversing in a straight line
Stopping on the right side of the road as always check your mirrors and signal right (if you need to stop and wait in the middle of the road as you would if you were turning right it is ok to do so) when it is safe to do so move over to the right-hand side of the road and stop somewhere safe, legal and convenient to other road uses.
Then when it is safe to do so reverse back approximately 2 car lengths, ALWAYS have a good look around for other cars and stop if they are near you or about to pass you, and as always stop for any Pedestrians.
Then do all your checks (remember observations are always from the pavement to the road) before moving off and always signal left (do not sit there with your signal on) signal just before you move off, and get on to the left-hand side of the road.
Driving into a parking bay
When you are driving into a parking bay on the right just think about it as if you are turning right.
Keep to the left side of the road and signal right, line your right-hand door mirror up with the first line of the bay you are going into (keep the car nice and slow) and turn the steering wheel all the way around to the right and just guide the car into the centre of the bay.
When you are driving into a bay on your left.
You will need to signal left but pull as far over to the right side of the road before you get to the bay you are parking in, then line up your left-hand door mirror with the first line of the bay you are driving into (keep the car nice and slow) and turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and just guide the car into the centre of the bay
