329 of the 1725 new drivers we surveyed said they are not very or not at all confident in their ability to park. Some people can drive for years and struggle with parking, and some drivers can get a grip on it on day one. If you’re still not confident with parking, don’t worry, here are some quick tips.
Find a style that works for you. If you can forward bay park, don’t try and reverse, stick to what works for you.
If you don’t think the space is big enough, don’t try and park in it. Walking a bit further to the shop is better than a broken wing mirror.
Practice, practice and practice some more. If you aren’t confident in your parking abilities, find an empty car park on an evening or a weekend and practice your parking when there is no one about.
