The exercise is designed to test the candidate’s accuracy in manoeuvring the vehicle when reversing. The degree of accuracy required is the ability to occupy a bay 1½ times the width of the vehicle and with the rear of the vehicle within the stopping area.
The candidate should not cross any of the yellow boundary lines with the full width of a tyre whilst manoeuvring, nor should they displace any of the marker cones.
On B+E tests candidates should aim to position the extreme rear of the vehicle within any part of the yellow stopping area including the black cross-hatching. Stopping short of the area or reversing through the stopping area (displacing the barrier) should be viewed a FAIL
