How To Parallel Park Step By Step
When it comes to learning how to parallel park it's important to be patient and make sure that you don't do any damage to your car or anything around it. As with most things it will take some practice before you get good at it, so do some trial runs on a quiet street. The following instructions will show you how to parallel park step by step to get you started.
As you approach a potential parking spot, slow down and signal your intention. Align your car so that the passenger side is approximately one foot away from the vehicle on the right. Slowly drive past the space, making sure that its big enough as you go by. Initially you will want to pick a spot quite a bit larger than your car, but with experience you will be able to comfortably park in smaller spaces. Stop when your rear bumper is about a foot behind the rear bumper of the vehicle in front.
