Bay parking manoeuvre – 45 degree method

How to do bay parking using the 45 degree method. You can use this reverse bay parking technique on your UK driving test and is a driving test manoeuvre that you can practice during your driving lessons.

Reverse bay parking is safer than forward bay parking as you’ll have a better view when driving forward out of it, especially if you have parked vehicles either side of you.

You might not have to do this manoeuvre on your driving test as it depends on the driving test centre.

All reference points shown may look different for you as they vary depending on what car you’re driving, your height and seat position.

  2. This is a great technique. I used to do 90 degrees, but I find it is hit and miss whereas the 45 degree technique is quite easy to use.

  3. Hey man, i'm curious.. when you manoeuvre at a 45 degrees away from the bay, how much allowance do you have to give to prevent your car's bonnet from swinging towards the object in front of you when you reverse full lock shortly after? For example, the red van. From the video, the front view seems like it was so close and it might actually hit the object Infront of you when you reverse full lock to the left. Do you have any tips to help me overcome this fear of hitting cars infront when I reverse in full lock at a 45 degree method?

    Thank you so much and happy 2019!

  4. Many many many Thanks for your video lessons, I’m so appreciate you hard work . Can’t believe but your video lessons help me to improve my skills and allow me to pass the driving test without taking any practical lessons with intructor. Hopefully to see a million subscribers in this channel, as this is the best channel for studies a driving practical maneuvers . Thank you so much for everything.

  5. well what can i say, if anyone is reading this, this channel is essential for picking up tips and tricks to help pass your test. i found out 3 weeks ago that after passing my test 12 years ago, due to my stupidity not updating my licence and address the DVLA revoked my licence, i did not know this until tried to insure a new car. anyway i tried to launch an appeal with the DVLA, but this is a lengthy process, instead they sent me a brand new provisional (distraught) i booked the next available theory test slot (4 days) spent the weekend swatting up and passed (49) (69) just using the driving test success app, this was 4.99 on play store, OK i had an advantage that i knew a lot anyway and common sense but it was amazingly helpful, and the questions really do feature in the real test. as do some video clips. As i wanted to pass quick i struggled for instructors in my area to fit me in, spent hours and hours on you tube, especially this channel, just to freshen up on mirrors, get rid of bad habits,watched mock tests till the cows came home and passed today with only 3 faults. i'm NOT saying this is the way to pass, i had the basics and over 10 years of regular driving but you really don't understand how complaisant you become, and lazy,MIRRORS MIRRORS MIRRORS do not forget that, you must check, and act on what you see. I thought my mirrors were good until i was on L plates and got my wife to count , turns out they were awful. my test had no sat nav and followed road signs, and hit me with a parallel park in the first 3 minutes, and included an emergency stop. so triple whammy their. And like many, thought i had ballsed it up, i carried on, just as well that i did. But the point of my comment is these videos are extremely helpful, without them i would have been screwed,it was certainly the reason i passed today and want to thank world driving for that. ONE LAST THING PLEASE KEEP YOUR LICENCES UPDATED or in 12 years if your unlucky you might end up like me.

  6. Hi question it would be greatly appreciated if you could answer. My instructor a month ago told me that there was no point signalling when moving off if there’s no cars behind etc.
    If even there’s cars coming she said it’s just better to wait for them to go then I can set off. She Said I should signal if a car was infront of me parked as well – in case they were going to move off and so on ?what are your thoughts on this ?

  7. hi Chris….. Iam abi from India. iam a bigginer in driving. if I changing my gears I couldn't control my steering wheel please help me out

  8. Bro driving is harder than it really looks on my mock test I nearly crashed into a bus, mounted 2 kerb's, nearly drove into a no entry, undertook 3 cars and a van and forgot to signal right on approach to a roundabout. However a week later (today) I passed with 12 minor faults.

  9. How people passed their test first time 😕 i have bloody failed 3 times im so dishearten i just feel like cry 😭 now booked again n plz needs lots of prayers i hope pass this time 🙏🏻

  10. I use this method only when the traffic is busy. In a quiet traffic, I prefer to use the traditional (90 degree) method, because it gives me more time to do reverse maneuver which I enjoy. Thanks again for your video on the traditional method; I learn much, especially the reference points.

  11. Thanks for posting these videos- I passed today first time and 2 minors with 8 hours driving lessons and private practice. I don’t think it would be possible without watching so thank you 😊

  12. I passed my driving test 5 months ago and my instructor taught me the 90 degree, but in the real world this way of parking is much better and more practical, quicker too.

  13. Thanks Chris! This video is very timely as I started practising this manoeuvre in my own Fiesta last week. Not quite there yet, but I’ll keep trying.

  14. Would you recommend a Ford Fiesta for a new driver? I think I might get this car but I’m still unsure
