When approaching a junction on a UK driving test, it is important to follow a few key steps to ensure a safe and successful manoeuvre:
- Identify the type of junction: Is it a T-junction, crossroads, roundabout, or something else? Knowing the type of junction will help you understand what to expect and how to proceed.
- Check for road signs and markings: Look for any road signs or markings that indicate the priority of the junction, such as give way or stop signs, and obey them accordingly.
- Use your mirrors: Check your mirrors to make sure it is safe to proceed.
- Signal in good time: Signal in good time to indicate your intention to turn or change lanes.
- Check for other road users: Look out for other road users, such as pedestrians, bicycles, and other vehicles, and make sure it is safe to proceed before entering the junction.
- Observe the “MSM routine” (Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre) before entering and exiting the junction.
- Once you have safely exited the junction, cancel your signal.
By following these steps, you will be well-prepared to deal with junctions on your UK driving test.
