How to do forward bay parking UK driving test – parking in a car park

It’s safer to do reverse bay parking and then drive forward out as you’ll have better visibility, but sometimes you might find that driving forward into a bay and then driving forward out more convenient.

In this video we have a look at how to do forward bay parking and reversing out, which is something you might be asked to do on your driving test.

We have a look at how to drive forward into a bay on the left, right, between vehicles and how to correct the bay parking if it goes wrong.

All reference points shown might look different for you as it depends on what car you’re driving, seat position and your height but they will be something similar.
