What are the questions that students tend to ask the most during a driving test? Here is a concise list of some questions and their correct answer that will help you revise for your upcoming driving test.
Q: WHEN CAN I OVERTAKE FROM THE LEFT (UNDERTAKE)?
A: You can undertake when the car in front of you is turning right and you need to make a left and when the vehicles in your lane are moving slowly and you need to merge with the left lane. You can also undertake if the person in the right hand lane is going slower than is reasonable, eg if you’re on a motorway and you’re doing 70, and the person in the middle lane is doing 50.
Q: WHAT DO WHITE ZIG-ZAG LINES ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD MEAN?
A: That a zebra crossing is coming up. Also, you can’t park or overtake over the white lines. It’s also for pedestrian crossing.
Q: WHAT DOES A DOUBLE YELLOW LINE AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD MEAN?
A: A double yellow line means mean no waiting at any time.
Q: DOES AN AMBER TRAFFIC LIGHT MEAN I CAN GO?
A: An amber traffic light allows you time to get ready to go at the green light, but you must not move your car or accelerate. The only time it’s legal to drive through an amber light is when a driver is going too fast and is too close to the lights to safely stop.
Q: DO I HAVE TO STOP AT A ZEBRA CROSSING?
A: A driver must always stop at a zebra crossing if a pedestrian is waiting to cross. Pedestrians have right of way as soon as they step onto the crossing, so always approach with caution.
Q: WHEN IS IT ILLEGAL FOR A PEDESTRIAN TO CROSS THE ROAD?
A: In the UK, jaywalking is not an offence, so you must be extra alert on pavement roads, just in case a pedestrian decides to cross. Also, a pedestrian has right of way to cross a road before a car has turned into the junction.
Q: CAN I STOP ON A ROUNDABOUT?
A: A roundabout is considered another yield point, so it is legal, but you cannot stop to let another car enter.
Q: HOW FAR AWAY SHOULD I BE FROM THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME?
A: The Highway Code mentions the two second rule, so a car must be at least two seconds away from you at all times. In wet or icy conditions, double this.
