The Highway Code - Using the road (Reversing)

Choose an appropriate place to manoeuvre. If you need to turn your 
vehicle around, wait until you find a safe place. Try not to reverse 
or turn round in a busy road; find a quiet side road or drive round
a block of side streets.

Visit: Driving test book

201) Do not reverse from a side road into a main road. When using a
driveway, reverse in and drive out if you can.
Look carefully before you start reversing. You should
use all your mirrors
check the ‘blind spot' behind you (the part of the road you cannot
see easily in the mirrors)
check there are no pedestrians (particularly children), cyclists,
other road users or obstructions in the road behind you.
Reverse slowly while
checking all around
looking mainly through the rear window
being aware that the front of your vehicle will swing out as you turn
Get someone to guide you if you cannot see clearly.
