  • USE THE OSMPSL ROUTINE

    Turning left into a side road is considered to be one of the easier junctions for novice riders. You must use the OSMPSL routine to approach. Once signalling, adopt the correct road position and reduce speed in plenty of time. As you approach the junction look early to assess any hazards. 

    For turning left into a side road, you will normally position slightly left of centre in the left wheel track. However you should be aware of road surface hazards i.e. drain covers, leaves, loose gravel and parked vehicles. 

    Remain aware of what is behind you as you may encounter overtaking traffic as you are reducing speed. Especially be aware of anyone overtaking you and turning into the same road.

     

    USE THE OSMPSL ROUTINE
  • ALTERNATIVE ROAD POSITION

    An alternative position is to stay in the centre of the lane and to dominate the road on approach to the junction. Your local motorcycle training provider will have their own views on this, especially for unusual junctions that may be used during your motorcycle test.

    ALTERNATIVE ROAD POSITION
  • KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER

    • Also known as left turn, major to minor
    • Ensure correct position and protect road space
    • Adopt the correct speed on approach
    • Follow kerb line around at the junction for good position
    • Do not accelerate too early to avoid drifting wide
