Driving on painted traffic islands
- You may not drive on the painted stripes of a traffic island surrounded by double lines.
- You may however drive on the painted stripes of a traffic island surrounded by a single line to enter a turning lane. This is only permitted when you are turning off the road you are driving on.
Remember, if you do so, you must give way to any vehicle entering the turning lane which is not driving on the painted traffic island.
- When stationary at red traffic lights you must stop as close as you can to the marked stop line without any part of the car over the stop line and within one metre of the line.
- When the lights change to green you must check right and left to see if there are any cars illegally running through red lights.
Intersection – Giving way
- A critical decision you have to make when crossing or turning at an intersection is when is it safe to go?
- You should make a safe and confident decision.
- The testing officer will be checking that you go only when there is a safe gap in the traffic and that you are not slowing down other vehicles. When joining a traffic stream select a safe gap that allows you to reach the traffic speed before the approaching vehicles are within three seconds of your car. If you select an unsafe gap you will fail.
- You are expected to maintain a safe, legal position on the road and you should keep at least one meter from other parked vehicles and hazards and have at least a one metre distance from the oncoming traffic.
