Want opinions on parking a manual car - help settle a debate! Lock Rss

Oh gosh in gear in gear in gear!!!

OPTION A!!

NEVER in neutral.

Nose up a hill in 1st.

Nose down a hill in reverse.

on flat ground in 1st.

all with hand brake on.


As you can never completely tell if the ground is completely flat. If you do not have it in gear and the hand brake fails, then it rolls and crashes into another car. Guess what your not covered in the eyes of the law or by insurance.
Thanks Tallulahbelle... Yep no restrictions. I think I have my learners temporary licence hidden away somewhere I should dig it up and see what it says.

Is it a new thing the licence class...? when I went for mine many years ago ( I have been driving for 17 years ) it wasn't something we had... I sat mine in an auto but a few years after I got my licence my parents bought me a car which was a manual so taught myself...
gasp so you might actually be driving a manual illegally..... It's not a new thing, the classes are uniform Australia-wide. I've had my licence for 20yrs but I have been aware of the different classes of licence long before that as I have aunties and uncles that were only 10-15yrs older and I remember when they were all learning to drive.


She isnt driving illegally. Its a state by state thing. In SA we only have one license type. Most people I know learn in auto, get their license then learn manual driving around a car park as its hideously expensive for driving lessons.

In SA you have 8 classes, same as every other state in Australia. Driving licence classes are uniform across Australia, it's not a state-by-state thing. So 8 classes and then each class is subject to individual restrictions. They are usually printed on the back of your licence.
