Parallel parking is quite possibly one of the most tricky driving test manoeuvres, thus fails a great many driving tests in the UK. For this reason, it’s highly advisable to learn a structured technique and practice until a level of proficiency is reached, so that each and every parallel park is achieved successfully. Remember, it doesn’t have to be done in one manoeuvre; it is perfectly acceptable to move forward and make adjustments throughout the procedure.
Using reference points helps as part of practising a structured technique; such as lining up your wing mirrors with certain points on the cars that you are going to park between. Drive slowly and smoothly and don’t get in a flap, and above all, keep observing the road around you.
Safe driving from Britannia!
