5. On dual carriageways:
On dual carriageways you need to be very aware. Don't race, but don't be a slow coach or you will incur the wrath of other drivers!
This practical module takes place on two or three lane carriageways and includes
joining and leaving, including right turns from dual carriageways
the use of mirrors
blind spots and scanning the road
judgement and planning

The topics covered include
joining and leaving a motorway
planning a journey in advance
safe speeds in different circumstances
effective observation and anticipation
signs, signals and markings
courtesy to other road users
