rear calipers should adjust themselves , check the levers are returning back to there stops if not slacken the cable adjusters then recheck the levers , when they are back on there stops start the engine and push the brake pedal repeatedly pushing it as hard as you can at least 30 times ( your leg will ache) this will adjust the calipers up quicker as you dont brake this hard on the road , adjust the slack only out of the cables and try again let us know how you get on ..

EP handbrakes are notoriously rubbish mate. You should always leave your car in gear when you park up anyway.
