Hours of Training
To turn right safely at a T Junction you should use the OSMPSL routine. You must slow down on approach to look early enough into the junction to make a safe decision. You will need to look both ways as you get closer to the junction. Turning right at a T Junction is considered to be one of the hardest junctions for a learner rider. The approach speed, positioning and slow control towards the junction are critical aspects to get right as you will have to give way in both directions. Time spent practicing in an off-road training area is advisable before you venture onto the public road.
You must always be prepared to stop at the junction. This ensures you have the correct speed and have enough time to adopt the correct position on approach. Creeping towards the junction in the final stages allows you to look and assess, ready to make a decision to stop or go. There is always a requirement to maintain rearward observation, in case other road users try to undertake or overtake you. Other hazards to assess include: drain covers, road surface, parked vehicles and oncoming traffic.
