Ok, so I put my car in reverse and do half a turn to the left whilst going back...

Then how many turns do I put on to the right :confused: I forgot!

Damnit, I thought this was a post about 2 theme parks, diametrically opposed to each other.

On reflection, that's a pretty retarded idea.

when youve turned to the left and you can see the straightening up point in your mirror i go full lock to the right and then when i'm almost directly straight behind the car then straighten up.

Ughh looks like I've been taught different! I park up next to a car, reverse back and put half a turn to the left on..

I dunno if I then do a full lock right or two turns right :confused: It's my mock test in ten mins lol!

Isn't it 1-2-1. So if you've been taught half a turn, I assume it would be half back so for you, 1/2- 1- 1/2?

Yeah I got told Left, Right then full Right.
So, position to do the manouver, reverse until your point, 1 turn right until 45 degrees. Reverse to your second reference point and then 1 turn right, keep reversing until it looks the right distance away from the kerb. Then reverse in and 1 lock right to straighten up.

It's a C-U Next Tuesday.

I've been driving over a year and still hate doing it because of my shiny new wheels.
