Question 1 of 10
What should you do when you’re joining a motorway?CorrectIncorrect
You should give way to traffic already on the motorway. Where possible, traffic may move over to let you in, but don’t force your way into the traffic stream. Traffic could be travelling at high speed, so try to match your speed to filter in without affecting the traffic flow.
Question 2 of 10
What’s the national speed limit on motorways for cars and motorcycles?CorrectIncorrect
Travelling at the national speed limit doesn’t allow you to hog the right-hand lane. Always use the left-hand lane whenever possible. When leaving a motorway, get into the left-hand lane well before your exit. Reduce your speed on the slip road and look out for sharp bends or curves and traffic queuing at roundabouts.
Question 3 of 10
Which vehicles should use the left-hand lane on a three-lane motorway?CorrectIncorrect
On a motorway, all traffic should use the left-hand lane unless overtaking. When overtaking a number of slower vehicles, move back to the left-hand lane when you’re safely past. Check your mirrors frequently and don’t stay in the middle or right-hand lane if the left-hand lane is free.
Question 4 of 10
Which of these isn’t allowed to travel in the right-hand lane of a three-lane motorway?CorrectIncorrect
A vehicle with a trailer is restricted to 60 mph. For this reason, it isn’t allowed in the right-hand lane, as it might hold up faster-moving traffic that wishes to overtake in that lane.
Question 5 of 10
You break down on a motorway. You need to call for help. Why may it be better to use an emergency roadside telephone rather than a mobile phone?CorrectIncorrect
On a motorway, it’s best to use a roadside emergency telephone so that the emergency services are able to find you easily. The location of the nearest telephone is shown by an arrow on marker posts at the edge of the hard shoulder. If you use a mobile, the operator will need to know your exact location. Before you call, find out the number on the nearest marker post. This number will identify your exact location.
Question 6 of 10
You’ve had a breakdown on the hard shoulder of a motorway. When the problem has been fixed, how should you rejoin the main carriageway?CorrectIncorrect
Signal your intention and build up sufficient speed on the hard shoulder so that you can filter into a safe gap in the traffic. Don’t push your way in, causing other traffic to alter speed or direction.
Question 7 of 10
You’re travelling along a motorway. Where would you find a crawler or climbing lane?CorrectIncorrect
Large, slow-moving vehicles can hinder the progress of other traffic. On a steep gradient, an extra crawler lane may be provided for slow-moving vehicles to allow faster-moving traffic to flow more easily.
Question 8 of 10
What do these motorway signs show?CorrectIncorrect
The exit from a motorway is indicated by countdown markers. These are positioned 90 metres (100 yards) apart, the first being 270 metres (300 yards) from the start of the slip road. Move into the left-hand lane well before you reach the start of the slip road.
Question 9 of 10
On which part of a motorway are amber reflective studs found?CorrectIncorrect
On motorways, reflective studs of various colours are fixed in the road between the lanes. These help you to identify which lane you’re in when it’s dark or in poor visibility. Amber-coloured studs are found on the right-hand edge of the main carriageway, next to the central reservation.
Question 10 of 10
What colour are the reflective studs between the lanes on a motorway?CorrectIncorrect
White studs are found between the lanes on motorways. They reflect back the light from your headlights. This is especially useful in bad weather, when visibility is restricted.
