Any tips on how to alley dock properly?

Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I was at the pad for about 9 hours today. Near the end manage to park almost all my alley docks. I feel more confident about tomorrow. I'll report back after the test.

I'm going to practice more tomorrow on the pad, alley dock is pretty much the only thing I'm struggling with. I have the cdl test on Sunday. Hopefully I'll pass.

Any tips on how to alley dock properly?

I'm currently going through Primes PSD program. My trainer took me on the road for about two weeks and unfortunately i didn't get a chance to practice much. We returned to the Springfield terminal and I got a chance to practice at the pad today. I can do the straight back, offset (I usually need a pull up), and the parallel parking without too much trouble. But i haven't been able to do an alley dock. My trainer has me pull up so that the white line is between my rear tires and the mud flaps. Then I turn the wheele all the way to the right and back up until i see a gap between the mud flaps on the drivers and the landing gear on the passenger side. I maintain the gap until the end of the trailer is near the cone then i just have to push it in. Unfortunately im always either too far left or too far right. I just can't seen to find a way that will work for me. Any tips or advice?
