Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When turning either right or left, you need to signal on approach.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When turning either right or left, it is important to signal on approach to indicate your intention to other drivers on the road. Signaling allows them to anticipate your actions and adjust their driving accordingly, promoting safe and efficient traffic flow. By signaling before making a turn, you are giving a clear indication of your intended direction, reducing the risk of collisions and ensuring smooth traffic movement. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

  • 3. 

    What must you do when exiting a large roundabout?

    • A.

      Signal to the left

    • B.

      Signal to the right

    • C.

      Exit in the left lane

    • D.

      Accelerate

    Correct Answer
    A. Signal to the left
    Explanation
    When exiting a large roundabout, it is important to signal to the left. This is because signaling to the left indicates to other drivers that you intend to exit the roundabout and helps to ensure a smooth and safe transition. Signaling to the right or accelerating would be incorrect as they would not communicate your intention to exit the roundabout. Exiting in the left lane may be a valid option depending on the specific road rules and lane markings, but it is not the primary action that must be taken when exiting a large roundabout.

      Middle

    • C.

      Right

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Right
    Explanation
    When turning right at a large roundabout, you should be in the right lane. This is because the right lane is designated for right turns, and it allows for a smoother flow of traffic. Being in the correct lane helps to ensure safety and prevents any confusion or potential accidents with other vehicles that may be in the middle or left lanes.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Before signalling to exit a roundabout, what should you check?

    • A.

      All 3 mirrors

    • B.

      Your interior mirror

    • C.

      Your interior mirror and left door mirror

    • D.

      Your left door mirror

    • E.

      Your blind spot

    Correct Answer
    C. Your interior mirror and left door mirror
    Explanation
    Before signalling to exit a roundabout, you should check your interior mirror and left door mirror. This is because these mirrors will give you a clear view of any vehicles approaching from behind or on your left side. By checking these mirrors, you can ensure that it is safe to signal and exit the roundabout without causing any collisions or obstructing other vehicles. Additionally, checking these mirrors allows you to be aware of your surroundings and make informed decisions while navigating the roundabout.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When turning right at a large roundabout, how many mirror checks should there be?

    • A.

      Once on approach

    • B.

      Twice - once on approach, once before the signal

    • C.

      Three times - once on approach, once before the signal and once before you change position as you exit in the left hand lane

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Three times - once on approach, once before the signal and once before you change position as you exit in the left hand lane
    Explanation
    When turning right at a large roundabout, there should be three mirror checks. The first check should be done on approach to the roundabout, to assess the traffic situation and potential hazards. The second check should be done before signaling, to ensure that it is safe to proceed with the turn. The third and final check should be done before changing position as you exit in the left-hand lane, to ensure that no vehicles are approaching from behind or attempting to overtake. These three mirror checks are necessary to maintain awareness of the surrounding traffic and ensure a safe maneuver.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer

    • D.

Giving way to cars on your right ensures a smooth and safe flow of traffic at the roundabout, preventing collisions and allowing for efficient movement of vehicles.
