  • Alertness
  • Attitude
  • Documents
  • Hazard Awareness
  • Incidents, Accidents & Emergencies
  • Motorway Rules
  • Types of Road Vehicles
  • Road Signs
  • Road Rules / Laws
  • Personal Safety and Vehicle Safety 
  • Vehicle Handling
  • Vehicle Loading

Any questions related to any of the above may be in this blog. 

Please Note: Answers are at the bottom of this page so make sure not to view them until finished. Either write your answers on a piece of paper or note them on an online document. 


  1. Which style or type of glasses can make driving during the night a difficult task?
  2. When is the only time you're allowed to drive your vehicle over pavement and why?
  3. If a cyclist or motorcyclist put their arm out fully to the left or right, what are they telling you?
  4. If you have to stop your vehicle in an emergency, but it was heavily raining and wet outside, what should you do more than anything else?
  5. If there were pedestrians and specifically elderly pedestrians at a pelican crossing, what should you do if the lights turned green and they had not yet crossed the road fully?


  1. Tinted glasses are a type of glass that has been darkened, which therefore makes it harder to drive, especially during the night when it's already dark. Wearing tinted glasses in the dark is dangerous and can cause you to miss important signs or possible debris or other hazards on the road. 
  2. You can drive on the pavement to park, as long as it's allowed, similar to curbside parking. Another way you can drive on the pavement is to drive to your home or piece of land that you own. If it's a friend or family member's home, then you may need permission, however, nothing will generally happen in regards to the law for this. 
  3. If a cyclist or motorcyclist throws out their arm to the left or right, they're telling you that this is the direction they will shortly be taking. Once they have done this, leave them room, don't overtake and allow for patience and safety. After throwing their arm out in one direction, they will likely be turning on the next available path or road. 
  4. Above all else in this situation, you should keep both hands on the steering wheel due to the reduced grip and the reduced vision ahead. Controlling the direction of the car with one hand is dangerous and can lead to disasters, especially in wet and rainy conditions. 
  5. For elderly pedestrians especially, you should wait patiently until the road is clear. Elderly people are less likely to understand if a traffic light has turned green so they may unexpectedly continue crossing without realising.


The topics covered this week were personal safety/vehicle safety, road rules/laws, alertness, vehicle handling and hazard awareness.
