A slow down and stay behind

Be patient and stay behind the car in front. Normally you should not overtake other vehicles in traffic-calmed areas. If you overtake here your speed may exceed that which is safe along that road, defeating the purpose of the traffic calming measures.

DO NOT overtake if there is any doubt, or where you cannot see far enough ahead to be sure it is safe. For example, when you are approaching

- a corner or bend

- a hump bridge

- the brow of a hill.


DO NOT overtake where you might come into conflict with other road users. For example

- approaching or at a road junction on either side of the road

- where the road narrows

- when approaching a school crossing patrol

- on the approach to crossing facilities

- where a vehicle ahead is slowing to stop for a pedestrian that is crossing from a pedestrian island (see Rule 165)

- between the kerb and a bus or tram when it is at a stop

- where traffic is queuing at junctions or road works

- when you would force another road user to swerve or slow down

- at a level crossing

- when a road user is indicating right, even if you believe the signal should have been cancelled. Do not take a risk; wait for the signal to be cancelled

- stay behind if you are following a cyclist approaching a roundabout or junction, and you intend to turn left. Do not cut across cyclists going ahead, including those using cycle lanes and cycle tracks (see Rule H3)

- stay behind if you are following a horse rider or horse drawn vehicle approaching a roundabout or junction, and you intend to turn left. Do not cut across a horse rider or horse drawn vehicle going ahead

- when a tram is standing at a kerbside tram stop and there is no clearly marked passing lane for other traffic.

Nice app and free mode was enough to pass first time! Developing hazard test would be a plus

Great app, just did 59/60 with first try on my theory exam. Exactly what you need to prepare! Would be great to have hazard perception training too.
