It can certainly be a challenge for drivers who are used to parking in driveways and parking lots.

While most vehicles come equipped with a backup and front-facing camera, parallel parking is a skill worth perfecting no matter what you’re driving.

Below, we’ll present a step-by-step guide to getting your car into the perfect corner.

To begin with, motorists should keep driving until they find a spot large enough for their vehicle.

Parallel parking begins with the front of your vehicle in line with another vehicle’s rearview mirror.

  • Hit the car first. If your vehicles are of different lengths, line up behind your vehicle with the back of the vehicle in front as much as possible.
  • Stop
  • When coming to a complete stop, turn the wheel all the way to the right or left depending on your parking position. Do not move forward or backward while doing this.
  • Start backing up as quickly as possible. Your car will start to turn the point; however, do not spin your wheel from the all-right/left position.
  • Stop reversing when the front right or left corner of the vehicle behind is centered on your rear windshield.
  • Stop the car.
  • At full stop, place your wheels back in the center position.
  • Back up slowly until your car has just passed the car, then stop.
  • When stopping, turn the wheel all the way to the left or right. Please stop doing this.
  • Then continue to reverse. Don’t spin your wheel from a left or right vantage point.
  • When your car is parallel, stop and turn the wheel to face forward again.
