Salisbury Roundabouts

One of the most difficult aspects of taking your driving test in Salisbury is dealing with the roundabouts on the ring roads in a safe manner. The roundabouts are traffic-light controlled, so that takes away one worry. However, they are divided into lanes and some of the lane markings are unclear, so unless you have had a bit of tuition and practice, it’s difficult to see where you need to go to keep safe.

The consequence of accidentally drifting out of a lane during your driving test is a fail because you would most likely have changed lanes without looking in your mirrors.

For this reason, I have captured some dash cam clips showing the correct path to take on many of the roundabouts on the ring road. To view the clips, either click on a pointer on the map or view the entire playlist. Study them carefully and practice them with your driving instructor.

St Marks Roundabout

St Marks Roundabout is very close to the test centre so it’s very likely that you will need to cross it during your test, either leaving the centre or returning. For that I reason, I have prepared the following bird’s eye views with the correct lane position marked (click on image to enlarge):
