Billy: Fortunately, the hand brake is in the center of the car so my advice will help you even though you drive on the wrong side of the road 8-) To adjust the handbrake, you need to get under the car. Drive the front wheels up onto ramps, chock the rear wheels, disengage the handbrake, then slide under the center of the car (approximately under where the handbrake is). You'll find a threaded shaft with a nut on it. Tighten the nut a little (a few turns should do it), then try the handbrake. Repeat until you feel strong resistance with a couple of clicks to go on the handbrake.
