Bay park Use line nearest to you marking the bay you want to reverse into. Full lock. Remember to straighten up when parallel with lines!
Independent Driving:  
You will be asked to drive independently for about 10 minutes during your test. This involves either following a set of directions (usually 2 sets of 3 turns at a time) or following signs to a place. The destination might change as you drive - you won't really end up in Reading!
This is not a separate requirement for the driving test but a brief check on how you will drive by yourself after you have passed. You will not fail or even get a driving fault if you go the wrong way as long as other road users do not know that you have - ie you've used you mirrors and signalled and been in the correct road position for the direction you have taken.
Legal responsibilities Road Tax, Insurance, MOT
Environmental issues Environmentally efficient driving
Passangers & loads Effects of extra weight.
Security Lock it or lose it.
