Driving Instructor advice junctions on Test

As a driving instructor, I know that it is not easy to deal with some of the other impatient road users you might encounter, but you do not need to fail the driving test because of them.

Junctions are one of the places where you need to exercise caution, and it is important that you Look, Assess the situation before you Decide, then Act safely.

When emerging to turn right for example during busy times you might be stuck at the junction for a while. Continue to check both directions until you find a gap before you cross the giveway line. The examiner is a driver, and can see what is happening, so don't do anything unsafe, no matter how pestering the driver of the car behind you is.

If you rush, you are more than likely going to make a driving error that might be serious. You are an in-experienced driver and will not be expected to react as quickly as the car in front of you, as long as you avoid undue hesitation, then you will be fine. It takes time to master this skill and be confident, so make sure you practise more of those junctions that you don't like (including the hill starts, closed T junctions and busy rounabouts).

If you require high quality driving lessons from a very helpful, patient and fully qualified instructor, then why not call or send me a text message on 07956233032
