Again, safety is a theme that dominates many questions.

Many questions present every day road situations where the correct answer is always the safest options, for example:

You are on a busy main road and find that you are travelling in the wrong direction. What should you do?

1. Turn into a side road on the right and reverse into the main road

2. Make a U-turn in the main road

3. Make a 'three-point' turn in the main road

4. Turn round in a side road

The correct answer, the safest, is 4. No question will require an answer such as 'speed up', 'sound your horn' or 'flash your lights'
