How do you park a car perfectly every time?

At a glance, it’s a simple yes/no question. Do you turn to look as you turn to the left, or do you turn your head and shoulders to look as you wait for the other car to pass you. “Formatted Car” means it’s accurate and that you hold the steering wheel in your right hand.

How do you park a car perfectly every time?  Do you ever park in a parking garage on a regular basis?  That depends on what brand of car you own.  You can often park in a combination of those cars.  Split parking between two cars is something that usually works out fine for me.  Parking in a parking garage on a regular basis is actually quite simple.  Just take a look in your rearview mirror.  You should be able to see the front of the car in front of you as you are reversing.  Just take a quick look in your right blind spot and pull your wheel back slightly if possible.  Then continue reversing.
As an added hack, put some of the litter into a tube sock and throw it on your dashboard during the day.  That way, when you get home from work, you’ll not only have more space in your car, but also, easier access to the internet.  Make sure you put some of the litter into a tube sock filled with water so that it doesn’t get too cold.
Finally, pick up some alcohol-based hand sanitizer.  It really doesn’t have to be any different than the water you use to make your drinks.  Just take a quick gulp of the water and a quick swish of your hand.  The trick is learning to recognize when the alcohol is coming and to keep moving when it is no use.
You can also use smartphone apps to remember your parking spot.  Apps like Google Maps can set the GPS coordinates of your vehicle when you park.

How do you park a car perfectly every time?
Whilst driving along looking for somewhere to park, if there are plenty of other cars parked up, you may need to consider a parallel park. If the road is busy, keep a good check on your rear mirror because when you locate an ideal spot, you will need to signal to the left to let other vehicles you are slowing down. They may think you are taking a left turn when in fact you will be stopping, so slow down gradually if possible to give the car behind time to react.
Stop alongside the vehicle you wish to park behind. An ideal distance is around 1 meter from door to door. Once stopped, select reverse gear and ensure it is safe and no pedestrians are crossing and the vehicle behind has left enough room for you to reverse.
When safe, begin to reverse until the cars are level at the rear. To establish where this is, if for example your car and the car to your left are a similar size, line the side mirrors up. Another reference point is to get the very rear of the car to your left in about the centre of your rear left window, or the front of the car to your left, depending which way round it is.
These reference points may need to be altered slightly depending on what car you have. Again, have a practice go on a quiet road to establish this. Once you are happy that the cars are around level at the back, it may be an idea to stop.
You will need to now steer one complete turn of the wheel to the left.
