Unit 2: Task 12 - 90 degree angle park (front to kerb)

Learning Outcome

  1. The learner will be able to enter a 90 degree angle park (if available), front to the kerb, safely and competently while maintaining full control of the vehicle; and
  2. The learner will be able to leave a 90 degree angle park (if available), safely and competently while maintaining full control of the vehicle.

Assessment Standard

The learner will accurately perform parts 1 and 2 of this task together without assistance. The assessment will be a demonstration on at least two consecutive but separate occasions.

Requirements

Entering a 90 degree angle park (front to kerb)
  1. Select a suitable parking bay, check the centre mirror, then the side mirror (s) then signal, and slow the vehicle to a safe and controllable speed;
  2. Choose the appropriate gear for control (if required);
  3. Check vehicle clearance (as applicable) on the inside of the turn (appropriate mirror or shoulder check); and
  4. Correctly position the vehicle, front to kerb, wholly within the bay (on the first attempt) while maintaining full control without touching the kerb:
    1. Not more than 300 mm out of parallel with the lines;
    2. Not more than 300 mm from the kerb or end of parking bay; and
    3. Where practicable, central within the parking bay with the front wheels pointing straight ahead towards the kerb.
Leaving a 90 degree angle park
  1. Select reverse gear;
  2. Constantly check behind (over shoulders), both sides and to the front before moving and during reversing;
  3. Reverse slowly under full control of the vehicle and check for clearance of the front of the vehicle (where appropriate);
  4. Reverse the vehicle only for such a distance as is necessary and turn the steering wheel sufficiently to allow the vehicle to safely clear the parking bay alongside and counter steering sufficiently (dry/stationary steering not permitted) in preparation to move off safely down the road without rolling; and
  5. Move off in accordance with Task 3, steps (2) to (7) (signalling as appropriate) with safety and without rolling; and
  6. Perform all steps above in sequence.
