While you are on the UK driving test, it is important that what ever you do, first of all you make sure that it is safe. You must not proceed just because the car in front of you does so, don't play driving test games of follow the leader.
I've been on driving tests where candidates have used Bus Lanes just because the car in front went into it, others have gone into roadabouts because the car besides them entered even though it was not safe, turned right at a traffic light with oncoming vehicles following the car in front.
As a potential full UK licence owner, you must convince the DSA examiner that you are a safe driver according to their standards. It doesn't matter what motorists generally do, you must abide by the road traffic act and the highway code if you want to pass the driving test.
