Everybody who learns to drive with me can now take advantage of the ‘DriverActive’ online training system.
The ‘DriverActive’ course will lead you through your driver training. It will show you how to deal with, junctions, crossroads, roundabouts and many more aspects of today’s roads.
At the end of each lesson, we will discuss what we intend to cover next time. You can then use the ‘DriverActive’ online system to read up about the new topic, or revise what we have previously covered.
Advance study like this will enable you to have a head-start at the next lesson, so we spend less time talking and you spend more time driving. (I might even set you a little ‘homework’ to make sure you understand the most important bits!)
An example of the sort of information you can get from ‘DriverActive’ is shown at the bottom of this page.
*DriverActive access is normally £6.99 for 90 days.
The routine for approaching roundabouts is the same as for any other junction. However, because many roundabouts have an open view, you can make an early decision about whether to stop or go.
It’s important to keep your eyes moving as you approach in order to scan the road for a safe gap and to make sure that you stay in the correct position on the road – as with other junctions the key to being able to do this is to get your speed right on the approach.
Your first warning of a roundabout on busier roads will often be a direction sign similar to those shown on the previous page. On quieter roads there might not be a direction sign, but there will often be a roundabout warning sign.
After checking your mirrors and giving a signal (if required) you need to ensure that you are in the correct lane (as explained later). There will sometimes be advance warning signs telling you which lane to select.
When you are in the roundabout you need to be aware of what other people are doing; long vehicles or vehicles towing trailers might have to take an unusual course around the roundabout, cyclists and pedestrians are also vulnerable because the traffic is often travelling faster at roundabouts than at other types of junction.
