What should a driver do when they approach roadworks warning signs?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You should always approach roadworks with caution as there are many possible hazards to deal with — including road workers, works vehicles, uneven road surfaces and temporary traffic controls.

What should a driver do after passing through a flooded section of road?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When you drive through a flooded section of road, your brakes may become less effective. If this happens, test your brakes to ensure that they have not been affected by the water — check in your mirrors before you do this. If they have been affected (and this is more than likely just temporary), press gently on the brake pedal as you are driving until they dry out and return to normal.

When turning right from a minor road onto a dual carriageway with a wide median strip, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: If you wish to turn right onto a dual carriageway from a minor road and the central median is big enough, you may complete the manoeuvre in two stages: 1. Wait until it is clear on the right, and proceed to the central median: 2. Wait in the central median until it is clear from the left, and then complete the turn.

When driving a vehicle, what effect could icy roads have?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Icy roads can have a dramatic effect on the way a vehicle handles, and there can be an increased risk of skidding. When driving on icy roads you should avoid harsh braking, steering and acceleration. This will help reduce the risk of skidding.

What should a driver be aware of when crossing road markings such as lines or arrows?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Tyre grip is reduced when you are crossing road markings such as arrows and lines, and you should be extra careful when driving over these in wet conditions.

What does a 2-plus-1 road have?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: A '2-plus-1' road consists of two lanes in one direction of travel and one lane in the other direction. The two-lane section allows for safe overtaking and alternates with a one-lane section roughly every 2 kilometres.

When driving on a one-way street and wishing to turn right, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When driving on a one-way street, you should normally keep to the left. When you want to turn right you should check your mirrors, signal right and manoeuvre into the right-hand side when it is safe to do so. Then complete the turn into the appropriate lane of the street you are entering.

What traffic may use a with-flow bus lane during the specified times?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: A bus lane is a special lane for the use of buses. A 'with-flow' bus lane is one that runs in the same direction as the traffic beside it. Taxis and cyclists may also use with-flow bus lanes. Other traffic may use them outside the hours posted on the accompanying plate.

When driving along a dual carriageway, what lane position should a driver be in?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You must normally drive in the left-hand lane of a dual carriageway, except when overtaking or turning right a short distance ahead.

What should a driver do when they encounter mud on the road?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Where there is mud on the road you should slow down and be aware that there is a danger of skidding. Your stopping distance will also be greater where there is mud on the road.

What should a driver be aware of when crossing tram lines at an angle?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Tyre grip may be reduced when you cross tram lines, especially in icy or wet conditions. As you approach tram lines, you should slow down, avoid harsh acceleration or sudden braking, and keep a greater distance from the vehicle in front Be extra careful when there are vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists using the crossing.

On a 2-plus-1 road, where must a driver only turn right?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: A '2-plus-1' road consists of two lanes in one direction of travel and one lane in the other direction. The two-lane section allows for safe overtaking and alternates with a one-lane section roughly every 2 kilometres. Where there are safety barriers separating the two direction of traffic, you may turn right only at controlled junctions.

When turning right from a minor road onto a dual carriageway with a narrow median strip, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: If you wish to turn right onto a dual carriageway from a minor road and the central median is not big enough to accommodate your vehicle, you should wait on the minor road until it is clear from both sides of the road before completing the turn.

What should a driver be aware of when driving through a section of road where roadworks are ongoing?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When you are travelling through a section of roadworks, you need to be extra careful, as the road surface may be uneven or slippery or there may be loose chippings. all of which can affect road holding.

What should a driver do when driving in slippery road conditions?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Your tyres have less grip on the road when it is wet or icy. Slow down in slippery' conditions, and keep a greater distance from the vehicle in front.

How should a driver negotiate a bend when the road is slippery?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Be extra careful when negotiating bends in slippery conditions. Slow down gently on the approach, select the appropriate gear for the speed of the vehicle and use gentle steering and acceleration to drive around the bend. Avoid braking in the bend as this may cause the vehicle to become unstable and cause a skid.

What is the safest practice when driving on icy roads?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When driving on icy roads you should avoid harsh braking, steering and acceleration. This will help reduce the risk of skidding.

When driving on a one-way street and wishing to turn right up ahead, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When driving on a one-way street you should normally keep to the left. When you want to turn right you should check your mirrors, signal right and manoeuvre into the right-hand side when it is safe to do so. Then complete the turn into the appropriate lane of the street you are entering.

What is the danger in driving with badly worn tyres at high speed on wet roads?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Worn tyres will reduce a vehicle's grip on the road. This becomes more noticeable on wet roads. As tyres become worn their ability to channel away the water between the tyre and the road diminishes. The minimum legal tread depth for motorcycles is 1mm and 1.6mm for other vehicles. However tyres should be replaced before they become this worn.

Apart from the risk of skidding, what danger may arise when driving in snow?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Road signs and road markings may become obscured by snow. If this happens you may have difficulty reading regulatory, warning and information signs. This is the main reason why these signs are different shapes. Drivers should pay particular attention in these conditions.

When may a driver drive (other than a bus or taxi driver) in a with-flow bus lane?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: A bus lane is a special lane for the use of buses. A 'with-flow bus lane is one that runs in the same direction as the traffic beside it. Taxis and cyclists may also use with-flow bus lanes. Other traffic may use them outside the hours posted on the accompanying plate.

When a driver wants to turn left into a property and there is a bus lane on the left, what should the driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: If you need to cross a bus lane on your left in order to enter a property, you should take extra care that there are no buses, taxis or cyclists in the bus lane. Check your mirrors, signal and turn into the property when it is safe to do so.

What should a driver do when driving in heavy rain?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: On a wet road, a film of water can build up between the tyres and the road surface. This is called 'aquaplaning and it has the effect of reducing the grip of the tyres on the road, and this affects your steering and braking. For these reasons you should slow down during and after rain and keep a greater distance from the vehicle in front.

What traffic may use a contra-flow bus lane?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: A bus lane is a special lane for the use of buses. A with flow bus lane is one that runs in the same direction as the traffic. A contra-flow bus lane is one that runs in the opposite direction to traffic beside it. Only buses on a scheduled service may use a contra-flow bus lane.

When is black ice likely to occur on the road?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Black ice occurs when moisture freezes on a very cold surface. Exposed roads and bridges can have black ice when other sections of the same road may be clear. Black ice is virtually invisible, and so presents a particular hazard for motorcyclists and drivers. In wintry conditions, if you notice a reduction in tyre noise or if the steering becomes lighter, you should suspect that there may be black ice on the road.
