Learning Parking at Remington College - Baton Rouge Campus
As a part of learning how to drive manual, you need to understand the two most tricky ways to park - backing up the car in a parking spot and parallel parking with a manual vehicle. The first one mentioned is what we term "back-in parking". You can do this by first pulling up about an entire vehicle's length in front of the parking area, and turning on your blinker and ensuring there are no cars or pedestrians you might bump into. When the coast is clear, press on the clutch pedal and slide the driving stick in reverse gear. Be sure you push the clutch all the way down up until you start backing up the car. Now, push down on the brakes and clutch pedal, pushing them completely. Then, gradually let go of the clutch until you reach the bite point - which comes with a list up on the back of the car and changes to the sounds from the engine. Afterward, raise your foot off the brake and take control of the clutch and brake pedals to back the car in slowly but surely. Beware not to go above a couple MPH as you carry this out. On your first several tries, you may not like where the manual car finishes on the parking area, so feel free to conduct some light adjustments, inching in and out up till you're content with how you're parked. We've got that addressed, so now we'll study how to safely navigate a stick shift vehicle to conduct parallel parking. For your and other drivers' benefit, switch on your right blinker. Then, move ahead to a couple feet from the parking area you selected, coming up head to head with the car in front of it. Apply your safety driving skills and check out your surroundings, pivoting your head around and looking at your rear camera and side view and rear view mirrors. To start, press down on the brake and clutch pedals, keeping them all the way down on the floor. Then, get the tires on aligned with the steering wheel. After that, you can lift your foot off of the clutch pedal until you get to the bite point. You'll know that the clutch has released when you sense the rear of the car lift up and hear the vibration of the engine changing. Once you're there, raise your right foot from the brake to get the wheels on your manual vehicle rolling. Keep your feet on the brake and clutch, mindfully controlling them with your feet to retain a steady but sure pace with the car. Keep an eye on your mirrors, and when your back bumper is a few feet at the back of the bumper of the vehicle beside you, steer your wheels to the left with the steering wheel. Then, when you notice the rear bumper on your right closing in around 2-3 feet from the curb, turn your steering wheel totally to the right this time. Now, retaining the manual car's same stable pace, redo your clutch control steps and press off and on the clutch and brake pedals until you have the stick shift vehicle successfully stationed.
