Parallel Parking Tips

In general, parallel parking is done next to a curb in the space between two parked cars. Parallel parking isn't always an option. You must choose a parking spot that is at least five feet longer than your vehicle. This manoeuvre takes practise to master.

Always signal first, and then park parallel to the vehicle in front of the empty spot (rear bumpers of both vehicles are aligned). Maintain a distance of at least two feet from this vehicle (see figure).

Check to make sure the path behind you is clear, then shift into reverse. Slowly turn your wheel toward the curb, looking over your shoulder and back.

Slowly back up until the front of your vehicle is even with the front door of the vehicle beside you. Turn sharply to the right and slowly back up until your vehicle is at a 45-degree angle from the curb.

Turn the wheel sharply away from the curb and slowly back until your vehicle is parallel to the curb.

Put the car in first gear and slowly centre it in the parking space.
