• Locate the parking space – is the space legal and is it approximately 1 ½ times the size of your car

• Mirror, signal, shoulder check and ensure that it is safe to stop and that there aren’t any vehicles tailgating you

• Pull up beside the car (3 feet from the car—in front of the parking space you wish to back into–and stop
• Line up the rear bumpers—you will be able to see the rear corner of the vehicle through your rear right window

• Put the car into reverse so the reverse lights activate telling traffic that you are going to park

• Put on your right signal to communicate to other traffic that you are going to park

• Locate your 45° degree reference point, which should be straight out form the door post—the reference marker can be any fixed object

• Release the brake pedal and back slowly, steering rapidly all the way to the right without any throttle and backing until your are facing your reference point

• At this point the rear bumper of the stationary car should be in line with your steering wheel

• Straighten the wheels and back until the bumper of the parked car is ½ to 1/3 the way down your hood or the front of your car clears the parked car

• Steer rapidly all the way to the left and back until the car is straight in the space

• Stop

Put the transmission in “Drive” or a forward gear and pull forward

• You should be able to see the top of the rear bumper of the car in front of you
• When park your vehicle should be 6-9” inches from the curb

• Secure your vehicle by applying the parking brake and putting the transmission into park (or a forward gear if you’re driving a manual transmission)

When pulling up to parallel park off the other vehicle, take note of how far the other vehicle is from the curb. If the vehicle is far from the curb, you will have to drive farther into the space. If the vehicle is close to the space, you will have to drive less deep into the space. If it is a wide vehicle, that too will dictate that you drive farther into the space.
