Common theory questions

When should you turn on the hazard warning lights?

You must be extra attentive of cyclists and moped riders when you turn in densely built-up areas with a lot of traffic as they are allowed to overtake you on both the left and right side. This means that a cyclist or moped rider may suddenly appear next to you, or just behind you, the moment you turn.

Remember that you must always check your rear-view mirror and side mirrors as well as your vehicle's blind spot by briefly glancing over your shoulder before turning, moving your car sideways or reversing.

You must also be extra attentive of cyclists and moped riders at junctions as they may usually turn left in two different ways:

  1. Prior to the turn they can stay in the right-hand part of the left-hand lane and then turn left at the junction. This is called "the tighter turn".
  2. They may also keep to the right in the right-hand lane and continue straight ahead, crossing over to the other side of the junction. When it is safe to do so, they may complete the left turn by riding or leading the cycle across the road. This is called "the wider turn".

Even if it looks like a cyclist is going to continue straight ahead or turn right at a junction, he or she might turn left when you least expect it. Be extra attentive at junctions, especially when there is a lot of traffic, so that no misunderstandings arise.

Cyclists and moped riders in a lane that is solely intended for right-turning traffic are not allowed to make the "the wider turn".
