Left/Right turns and emerging at T-Junctions
Affinity Driving School recommends the following circuit for carrying out turns and emerging at T-junctions:
Begin on Emmanuel Road, turn left on to Glenfield Road and then emerge right on to Burnbury Road. Continue along to the end of this road where you can emerge left on to the Radbourne Road. The next left will take you on to Midmoor Road, at the end of which you can emerge left on to Haverhill Road. From here you can turn back on to Emmanuel Road. This circuit provides a tried and tested method for allowing you to practice steering, MSPSL and peep and creep techniques.
When two cars meet and yet there is only room for one to pass, this is known as meeting traffic. The body language of the other car is key to knowing how to proceed. Practice in Ravenslea Road to gain a good understanding of this.
Atkins Road, Weir Road, Clarence Avenue and Thornton Road meet at a roundabout where the student can gain a good understanding of how to negotiate and cross them safely. Priorities, positioning and the appropriate signals to use can be practiced here.
