A. 30 mph
B. 40 mph
When you're towing a trailer, a reduced speed limit also applies on dual carriageways and motorways. These lower speed limits apply to vehicles pulling all sorts of trailers, including caravans and horse boxes.
A small child could be hidden directly behind you, so, if you can’t see all around your vehicle, get out and have a look. You could also ask someone reliable outside the vehicle to guide you.
A. By using brake lights
Your brake lights will give an indication to traffic behind that you’re slowing down. Good anticipation will allow you time to check your mirrors before slowing.
A. Minimum speed 30 mph
The red slash through the sign indicates that the restriction has ended. In this case, the restriction was a minimum speed limit of 30 mph.
A. Only on the left-hand side
You can overtake other traffic on either side when travelling in a one-way street. Make full use of your mirrors and ensure it’s clear all around before you attempt to overtake. Look for signs and road markings, and use the most suitable lane for your destination.
A. Keep the other vehicle to your right and turn behind it (offside to offside)
At crossroads, traffic normally turns offside to offside. This is the safest way to turn, but sometimes the layout or road markings indicate drivers should pass nearside to nearside. Take extra care at these crossroads because, as you turn, your view ahead will be obscured by the oncoming vehicle crossing in front of you.
A. The larger vehicle
Practise good observation in all directions before you emerge or make a turn. Proceed only when you’re sure it’s safe to do so.
A. 10 metres (32 feet)
Don’t park within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction (unless in an authorised parking place). This is to allow drivers emerging from, or turning into, the junction a clear view of the road they're joining. It also allows them to see hazards such as pedestrians or cyclists at the junction.
A. 30 mph
B. 50 mph
C. 60 mph
D. 70 mph
Exceeding the speed limit is dangerous and can result in you receiving penalty points on your licence. It isn’t worth it. You should know the speed limit for the road that you’re on by observing the road signs. Different speed limits apply if you're towing a trailer.
A. They may park in the lane
While it's in operation, other vehicles must not use this part of the carriageway except to pick up or drop off passengers. At other times, when the lane isn't in operation, you should still be aware that there may be cyclists using the lane. Give them plenty of room as you pass and allow for their movement from side to side, especially in windy weather or on a bumpy road.
A. Get out and investigate
At a level crossing, flashing red lights mean you must stop. If the train passes but the lights keep flashing, wait. Another train may be coming.
A. Get everyone out of the vehicle immediately
Keep going; don’t stop on the crossing. If the warning sounds and the amber lights come on as you’re approaching the crossing, you must stop unless it's unsafe to do so. Red flashing lights together with the audible warning mean you must stop.
A. Outside its hours of operation
Some bus lanes operate only during peak hours and other vehicles may use them outside these hours. Make sure you check the sign for the hours of operation before driving in a bus lane.
A. Keep in that lane until you reach the queue
Keep a lookout for traffic signs. If you’re directed to change lanes, do so in good time. Don’t
• push your way into traffic in another lane
• try to gain an advantage by delaying changing lanes.
A. You shouldn't drive in the lane unless it's unavoidable
Cycle lanes are marked with either a solid or a broken white line. If the line is solid, you should check the times of operation shown on the signs, and not drive or park in the lane during those times. If the line is broken, you shouldn't drive or park in the lane unless it's unavoidable.
A. To overtake slow-moving traffic
It's illegal to drive on or over a pavement, except to gain access to a property. If you need to cross a pavement, give priority to pedestrians.
A. 50 mph
The speed limit for cars towing caravans or trailers on dual carriageways or motorways is 60 mph. Due to the increased weight and size of the combination, you should plan further ahead. Take care in windy weather, as a strong side wind can make a caravan or large trailer unstable.
A. Keep just left of the middle of the road
Your road position can help other road users to anticipate your actions. Keep to the left as you approach a left turn and don't swing out into the centre of the road in order to make the turn easier. This could endanger oncoming traffic and may cause other road users to misunderstand your intentions.
A. Turn into a side road on the right and reverse into the main road
Don’t turn around in a busy street or reverse from a side road into a main road. Find a quiet side road and choose a place to turn around where you won’t obstruct an entrance or exit. Look out for pedestrians and cyclists as well as other traffic.
A. When you're carrying out a manoeuvre that includes reversing
You may remove your seat belt while you're carrying out a manoeuvre that includes reversing. However, you must remember to put it back on again before you resume driving.
You mustn't reverse further than is necessary. You may decide to turn your vehicle around by reversing into an opening or side road. When you reverse, always look all around you and watch for pedestrians. Don’t reverse from a side road into a main road.
A. Your reverse sensors will beep
Don’t reverse into a main road from a side road because your view will be restricted. The main road is likely to be busy and the traffic on it moving quickly.
A. Wait in the box junction if your exit is clear
You can wait in the box junction as long as your exit is clear. At some point, there'll be a gap in the oncoming traffic, or the traffic lights will change, allowing you to proceed.
