How
to deal with right junction

When you get asked to turn right, start with
your turning right routine. On approach to the junction, check your middle and
right mirrors, if safe then signal right in good time if not confusing to inform
other road users, postion on approach when turning right just to left of middle
line in road, start to slow down to an appropraite speed for the junction by
using your brakes approx 15mph(2nd gear turn) if clear with no oncoming traffic
or slow right down to stop into 1st if you are stopped by oncoming traffic, when

get to your turning point which is 1m before the middle line of the new road you
are turning into, when you are happy with your speed change into the gear chosen
and avoid coasting afterwards. Look well into the new road and make sure it is
