There are big changes to driving lessons coming in June, as learners will be allowed to go on motorways with their instructors.
Hopeful drivers will still have to pass their theory and practical tests as normal, though, and there’s a few questions tend to stump people more than others.
If you’re preparing for your test (or simply want to brush up on your highway code) you best learn this one.
This is one of the questions which you’ll need to know the answer to as part of your test, and just driving in general:
You should never attempt to overtake a cyclist…
A. just before a left turn
B. on a left-hand bend
C. on a one-way street
D. on a dual carriageway
The answer is A.
If you want to turn left and there’s a cyclist in front of you, hold back.
Wait until the cyclist has passed the junction and then turn left behind them.
If you try to overtake and then turn left, you’ll cut across the cyclist’s path, and there could be a serious collision.
This is actually a tough question that you need to read extra carefully, as you may think it’s referring to the cyclist turning left rather than yourself.
This is where many people have come unstuck. Luckily, you won’t fall foul of such a thing anymore!
