Building your driving skills has one major hurdle of learning how to park. Parking is an action that requires you to have a number of driving skills. This is the part where you actually get aware of the dimensions of the car and the way it responds to your actions. This is also the part where you master your skills on your car.
Though it may seem intimidating at first, but parking can actually teach you to reverse, start and stop a car with precision.
The staring to a parking event can be done by visiting, a safe quite place, followed by:-
– Use a slow pace to walk forward
– Drive slowly and steer quickly so as to pretend that you are actually parking out from a parked area, or pulling into a parked position.
– Drive slowly and then practice reverse steering
– Practice driving first to the left and then first to the right.
– Now drive at a running speed, thereby stopping smoothly followed by following the above steps.
– Keep repeating the steps unless they require the least of efforts to be put up.
Put in parking practice in all sessions of driving. As you start finding one type of parking easy, go over to the next in a different place and situation.
