Canterbury – Challenging Roundabout

The Canterbury driving test centre for cars is located on New Dover Road. This is a busy area with challenging roundabouts. This ranges from small mini-roundabouts to large multilane roundabouts. Many learner drivers fail the driving test at smaller roundabouts because they stop unnecessarily. Always plan to stop but hope to go.

Canterbury – ‘A’ Roads

Also on the driving test from Canterbury, to expect a deal with high-speed ‘A’ roads such as the A28 and the A2050. Joining these roads can be tricky. The driving examiner will expect you to build up speed to match the traffic already on the ‘A’ road. When joining such roads, it is vital that you do not force the vehicle is already on the main road to slow down, swerve or to stop in any way.
