EASIEST WAY to REVERSE PARK
Locate the parking stall you want to park in. Turn on your signal to inform others you’re parking.
* REFERENCE POINT 1: Second Car’s Side Mirror (or Second Stall Line)
Drive forward and pass your target parking spot. Locate the car that is parked 2 stalls ahead of your target parking spot. Align your side mirror with the car’s side mirror that is farthest from your target parking spot. Make sure your car is about 2.5 to 3 feet (0.9 meter) away from the back of that car.
If this parking stall is vacant, you can instead align your side mirror with the stall’s side line that is farthest from your parking spot.
This point of reference works if you have an average compact or standard size car. If your car is much longer, you will need to drive up about 2.25 or 2.5 vehicles ahead, instead of just 2.
Now check your mirrors to make sure there are no other cars or people approaching.
* REFERENCE POINT 2: Turn your wheel all the way
Turn your wheel all the way towards your parking spot. Remember to keep checking for pedestrians and cars, while you are backing up.
* REFERENCE POINT 3: Turn your wheel 1.5x in the opposite direction
Back up until you’re straight and parallel with your spot. Then turn the wheel 1.5x in the opposite direction to straighten out your wheel. Continue to back up until you fit your spot. Good job. You did it!
