How To Do A Basic Right Turn Video Lesson
On your driving test when performing a Basic Right Turn Manouevre the examiner will expect you to:
- Use the MSM/PSL routine in good time
- Brake gently and in good time
- Position your vehicle correctly - choose the correct lane where there are lane markings and in a one-way street
- Look for obstructions, traffic and pedestrians.
The examiner will also be looking to see that you:
- Read road traffic signs correctly and in good time.
- Accurately, assess the speed of traffic.
Dangers When Turning Right
Look out for vehicles nearing the end of the road you are turning into, and don't cut the corner by turning to soon or too sharply, as this could put you into the path of the approaching vehicle.
When you view of oncoming traffic is restricted, say by bends or hill crests, be extra vigilant before making the right turn, as there may be an approaching vehicle just out of sight.
If a queue of vehicles is building up behind you, don't get stressed or panic, as this may lead you to take an unnecessary risk and pull out too soon.
Pedestrians and Cyclists
You must give way to pedestrians crossing (actually crossing, not waiting to cross) any road you are turning into. If you encounter a pedestrian crossing the road, you must hold back until they are safely clear of your path.
Watch out for cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians, as they are not always easy to see.
