The New Driving test = Parking in a bay
Parking in a bay
The examiner will ask your pupil to park in a bay. They’ll ask them to either:
- reverse in and drive out (only in a driving test centre car park)
- drive in and reverse out (in any car park – including a driving test centre car park)
Here’s the instruction they’ll give to drive forward into a parking bay.
I’d like you to drive forward into a convenient parking bay finishing within the lines, either to the left or the right (if the car park allows it).
Now, I’d like you to reverse out either to the left or the right (if the car park allows it).
Your pupil doesn’t need to park in a bay where there are vehicles in adjacent bays.
Your pupil can’t drive through a first parking bay, and then park in a bay directly in front of that. When they reverse out, they can’t go into any bays behind them.
This video shows an example of the manoeuvre being carried out.
