    picture Alley docking is a reverse manoeuvre which is done in the yard test and forms part of the K53 driver license test.
    The traffic official will direct you to a marked square from where you will start the alley docking procedure. You need to obey all the rules of the road as you approach the starting point. Stop your vehicle within the marked square with your handbrake up and make sure the vehicle is in neutral.


    Check your rear view mirror and blind spot before indicating towards the appropriate side. Select the reverse gear and balance the clutch. Perform a 360 degree observation (blind spot, rear-view mirror, opposite blind spot) starting from the opposite side of the turning direction. Release the handbrake before moving off slowly.


    Remember the slower you move the vehicle the more time you have to think and react. Check the blind spot on the opposite side of your turning direction once more before turning your steering wheel to start moving into the alley. Guide rear end of the car initially by looking over your shoulder. Check the vehicle's side mirrors as you approach the alley to align the car between the parking poles.

    Look over your shoulder and stop the vehicle inside the marked square. Be careful not to know over the pole behind you. Pull up the vehicle's handbrake and put the vehicle in neutral.
