Below is a text overview of the manoeuvre:
Parallel Park

• MSPSL as you approach

• Pull up beside the parked vehicle (max a metre/door width away & straight) and stop when your left hand mirror lines up with the front of the vehicle.

• Handbrake & put the car into reverse.

• Look @ the camber of road and decide how much gas/biting point. Am I going up hill/down hill?

• Observations all round

• Handbrake off & half a turn LEFT. Slow car, quick steer.

• Observations all round

• When the left hand mirror lines up with the corner of the parked vehicle, half a turn RIGHT (the wheels are now straight)

• Observations all round/slow car

• Take the car slowly slowly back/observations all round

• When the curb lines up with the back of the car (small mirror "V") one turn RIGHT.

• Observations/looking all round, especially the KERB

• Just before the car is parallel one turn LEFT (to straighten wheels)

• Handbrake up & take out of gear

Throughout the manoeuvre you can make any adjustments you want just keep its SAFE!

Give way to all other road users including pedestrians.
