Overview

COMMON JUNCTIONS

This manoeuvre is also referred to as a left turn, from a minor to a major road. The most common junctions for learner riders to negotiate are T Junctions and side roads.  In all cases the OSMPSL routine should be used as a guide to safely negotiate the junction. You should slow down in plenty of time and look early into the junction, ensuring you have the correct road position and are ready to stop.

BE AWARE OF OTHER ROAD USERS

Turning left at a T Junction whilst one of the easiest junctions, does have a few risk factors to consider.  On approach you will normally need to position slightly left, this is referred to as the left wheel track. It is where the left hand wheel of a car would generally be. Make sure you have observed correctly and are aware of road surface hazards and parked vehicles before you move into this position. You must also be aware of overtaking vehicles, you can do this by regular use of your mirrors. Once at the junction be aware of impatient road users trying to get past you.
