There are three types of parking in terms of passing the driving test.

  • Angle Parking
  • Parallel Parking
  • 90 Degree reverse Parking


Angle Parking:

It is the easiest of all the parking. In most of public places you will find angle parking in which you have to park the car in 45 degree angle.  In UAE, car park space is separated by two lines and you are bound to park inside these two lines to avoid any fine or penalty. This space is large enough that a big station jeep can be placed easily.

What the driving examiner will be looking for if I am asked for an angle parking? This is now an important question and you must know these points and keep focus on these to pass your driving angle parking test.

  • He will look if you parked your car in the centre of the allotted space.
  • Did you maintained enough and safe distance from the vehicles present at left and right side of your car.
  • He will also check that your car is in forty five degree as compare to the road or divider or curb or kerb.
  • You must complete the process without taking any reverse in it which means you must park your car in a single straight attempt.

Parallel Parking:

Parallel parking is normally performed parallel to the road in reverse method. You will be allotted a space to park in between two cars or vehicles. This is the difficult type of parking and requires control skills and accurate techniques. If you don’t know the theory of parallel parking you cannot perform it correctly. This parking is performed in two steps. First reverse and then after fitting the allotted space a forward gear to position your car in the centre of the allotted space. If you are at your Parking test in Dubai or UAE, then it is mandatory to perform parallel parking test. If you want the exact techniques of parallel parking to perform it correctly and pass your parking test easily then this tutorial will be helpful to you.

90 Degree Reverse Parking:

This is relatively more difficult parking and mandatory to perform correctly in terms of to pass your driving parking test. You have to park your car in the allotted space between two cars in reverse in 90 degree to the road. It is three step parking process and requires much attention and focus to do it correctly. The examiner will check your complete process of attempting to park in 90 degree and after parking your car, he will check the

  • Distance from side vehicles
  • Position of the car as if it is exactly at 90 degree to road
  • Distance of your car from the boundary and from the road


Some Important Information on topic:

As far as the driving license tests are concerned whether it is final road test of initial parking test, only parking the car in allotted space will not justify. The examiners are checking with their checklist and noting each and every minor mistake which your perform during this process. Therefore it necessary that you perform it correctly and in the same way for in which they expect from you. During your throughout driving license classes they teach you each and every step of the process and the same they want you to perform practically on your each and every test of the driving license journey.

In general life you can easily park your car by two or three reverse attempts and adjustments, but in the test the case is different. You must accomplish the task in the specified steps. In short I will say “They don’t only check the final result but they check the carrying out process which leads the final result”.

They monitor your approach towards each step, they observe you silently that whether you are checking the mirrors, proper indications, staring movement, blind spot checks etc. So you must be ready for all the above mentioned points.

Importance of Parking Theory:

No matter how good driver you are, if you don’t know the theory of parking you can’t pass the parking test. The examiners have reasons to fail you if you ignore any step in the process.  The theory of parking is the result of continuous research and by following the theory you can perform ten times better.

As far as the driving test is concerned, this one reason will make you understand and satisfy that “The theory is important as examiners want you to perform according to the theory”.
