Driving Test Manoeuvres

On your driving test you will be expected to carry out one of the following reverse manoeuvres, with effective all-round observation:

  • Parallel park at the side of the road.
  • Reverse into a parking bay, and then drive out.
  • Drive into a parking bay, and then reverse out.
  • Pull up on the right-hand side of the road, then reverse for about two car lengths. You’ll then be asked to rejoin the traffic.

Driving test  Reverse Bay Park

On the Driving test manoeuvre Reverse bay park, the key is to think to yourself “How do i actually do this?”, as to pass your driving test, you will need to be able to do this without any help

The key with this and every driving test manoeuvre is focal points.

A focal point is a definite point

So when doing the reverse bay park, the easiest way of getting a pupil to do this, is to pick the bay you want, ignore both lines of the bay (green lines)

Count 2 lines past it – (2nd red line) match it up to a point on the passenger door – Full left lock and you will end up in the bay each time
