      Go round the circle ANTI-CLOCKWISE

    • D.

      Go round the circle CLOCKWISE

    Correct Answer
    D. Go round the circle CLOCKWISE
    Explanation
    When approaching a circle or roundabout, drivers must go round the circle clockwise. This means that they should enter the circle from the right-hand side and proceed in a clockwise direction, following the flow of traffic. Going round the circle anti-clockwise would be incorrect and unsafe as it would go against the established traffic pattern. Increasing speed or slowing down may be necessary depending on the traffic conditions, but the primary action is to go round the circle clockwise.

    Correct Answer
    A. At Railway Crossings, the train has right of way
    Explanation
    At railway crossings, the train has the right of way because it is a larger and more powerful vehicle that requires a longer stopping distance. This ensures the safety of both the train passengers and other vehicles on the road.

    You are driving along a narrow country road. When passing the cyclist you should ride

    • A.

      Quickly sounding the horn as you pass

    • B.

      Slowly leaving plenty of room

    • C.

      Quickly leaving plenty of room

    • D.

      Slowly sounding the horn as you pass

    Correct Answer
    B. Slowly leaving plenty of room
    Explanation
    When passing a cyclist on a narrow country road, it is important to do so slowly and leave plenty of room. This is because cyclists are more vulnerable on the road and need extra space to maneuver safely. Passing quickly or sounding the horn can startle the cyclist and potentially cause an accident. Therefore, the best approach is to pass slowly and ensure there is enough space between the vehicle and the cyclist to avoid any potential collisions.

    Riding the motorcycle when you are feeling cold, could cause you to

    • A.

      Be more alert

    • B.

      Be more relaxed

    • C.

      React more quickly

    • D.

      Lose concentration

    Correct Answer
    D. Lose concentration
    Explanation
    Riding a motorcycle when feeling cold can cause discomfort and distraction, leading to a loss of concentration. When the body is cold, it diverts energy to keep warm, which can affect cognitive functions and reaction times. Additionally, shivering or tense muscles can make it harder to maintain control of the motorcycle. Therefore, it is important to ensure proper clothing and warmth while riding to avoid any potential risks associated with a loss of concentration.

    • C.

      An area covered by your right hand mirror

    • D.

      An area not seen in your mirrors

    Correct Answer
    D. An area not seen in your mirrors
    Explanation
    The term "Blind Spot" refers to an area that is not visible in the mirrors of a driver. It is a part of the surroundings that cannot be seen directly or through the use of mirrors, making it a potential hazard for drivers. It is important for drivers to be aware of their blind spots and to check them by physically turning their heads before changing lanes or making maneuvers to ensure the safety of themselves and other road users.

    • A.

      Keep the same speed

    • B.

      Reduce your speed when you are turning

    • C.

      Reduce your speed as you approach the bend

    • D.

      Keep the same gear

    Correct Answer
    C. Reduce your speed as you approach the bend
    Explanation
    When approaching a road marking indicating a sharp turn, it is important to reduce your speed as you approach the bend. This is necessary to ensure that you have better control over your vehicle and can navigate the turn safely. Keeping the same speed or gear can be dangerous as it may cause you to lose control or skid on the bend. Therefore, reducing your speed as you approach the bend is the correct action to take in this situation.

Long vehicles such as trucks or buses may have difficulty maneuvering around roundabouts due to their length. Horse riders may also need to take a different path to ensure the safety of themselves and their horses.
