    I'm still getting to grips with the steering wheel and car wheels when reversing.

    If I do a full lock to the left, how many steers will I have to do to the right to straighten up.

    In fact can somebody just list all possible steerings with the amount to steer back to straighten up.

    LMAO thanks

    As you have more lessons steering will get better don't worry

    A tip my instructor said is follow your eyes. If you look in the direction you want to go in you naturally should go that way in general driving.

    Full locks are about 1 quarter turn and then a full turn in the opposite direction. I did it in two steps until it became natural to me.

    Possible steerings would be impossible to list. But overall think of:

    Small push/ pull steering: For subtle position adjustments. Also, on fast speeds so 40+ really, the smallest steer can lead to a significant change in direction.

    Medium steer in the correct direction. So massive steer then hold in position. Usually when turning a corner to ensure you remain on your side of the road.

    Large quick steers: Mostly used for manoeuvres because you want your clutch slow but your seers quick. They can be used to put the car on full lock too.

    Good luck!
