How to do reverse bay park
Take good all round observations to make sure it is safe to move.
Choose the bay you want to reverse into and pull up about two car lengths past it. Select reverse gear prepare the car to move, take good all round observations and if it is safe, continue the manoeuvre
|3. Position to turn
Look behind and reverse slowly so that the passenger door has a bay line half way through it as in the picture with red arrow.
At this point slow down and take good all round observations again and if it is safe to carry on steer full lock to the left as the car moves slowly into the bay.
This method will help you park the car on bay number 3 .
4. Throughout this manoeuvre you should be looking through the rear window, you can however take glances in your door mirrors if this helps you to successfully position the car.
As the car becomes straight and parallel with the white lines, straighten the steering as appropriate so that your car finishes parked straight and centrally between the two white lines.
If at any time during this manoeuvre a car, pedestrian, cyclist etc. approaches, stop the car. Either let them go past or if they stop to let you carry on then continue with the manoeuvre
Once you have parked into the bay apply the handbrake, select neutral and wait for instructions to proceed.
|To do this manoeuvre successfully you will need to be able to co-ordinate the speed of the car with the steering and carry out effective observations.|
