Hi, my name is Sheila. I have failed my drivers test three times already; every time I seem to have a problem on the alley docking and end up bumping a pole. Please help!
From personal experience I find that a lot of new learner drivers tend to struggle with learning how to reverse a vehicle. When it comes to learning how to do alley docking, I would suggest that you just concentrate on following the curve of the poles. I know most driving schools teach methods for alley docking. I however prefer equipping my learners with skill. Always remember that where you are looking when you reverse is ultimately where you will end up going.
So if you stare at the poles you will probably end up going into one of them. The key is to focus on the space between your vehicle and the poles on the side you are busy with. Try keep about a half a meter space between your vehicle and the poles. Also look up ahead where you want the corner of the car to go. Now guide the car there. Whatever you turn on the steering wheel to go in is what you must turn back to straighten your wheel.
Let me know how it goes. Practice makes perfect.
