We've put together this simple guide to ensure you’ll always remember which way round nearside and offside are. Trust us, this will help massively next time you need to replace a light, mirror or any other part which is located on both sides of your car.
The near side is the side nearest to the kerb. This is also abbreviated to ‘N/S’. In the UK this is also known as the passenger side.
The off side is the side away from the kerb. This is also abbreviated to ‘O/S’. In the UK this is also known as the driver side.
