In dealing with any obstruction on the road the secret lies in looking well ahead of you while driving and combined with early and sensible use of the Mirror Signal Manoeuvre (MSM) / Position Speed Look (PSL) routine which will be explained to you in great detail on your lessons with us.
When faced with an obstruction on the road the decision to wait or go will depend on the type and width of the road and whether or not the obstruction is on your side of the road, the other side of the road or perhaps on both sides of the road. You will need to assess and identify if there is traffic approaching and see if there’s room available.
As a rule of thumb or a general rule, if the obstruction is on your side of the road then the approaching traffic will have priority.
But never assume that you have priority if the obstruction is on the other side of the road. We will teach you to always be prepared to give way in any situation so you can always expect the unexpected.
So after looking well ahead and identifying an obstruction on the road using the MSM/PSL routine, first M, check your mirrors to assess the speed and position of any following traffic.

S- Signal if it is necessary to do so. Then P for Positioning. What you need to do is try and avoid keeping too far in to the left so that when you come across the obstruction, you don’t have to steer past it at the last second. A gradual change in direction out from the obstruction is the perfect maneuver.
If you have to stop the vehicle and wait, ensure you do this well back from the obstruction so that you have a good line of sight past it.
Then S for Speed, you need to adjust your speed to what’s necessary and this will depend on the situation in hand but try and aim to regulate your speed using progressive braking so it s a smooth and steady flow without stopping if this can be done.
The L is finally for Look and assess the situation and decide if you need to wait or see if it’s safe to proceed past the obstruction.
You will come across many situations like this on your driving lessons with us and it really is basic stuff once you know what to do and we will make sure you know all of the above in preparation for learning to drive and passing your driving test.
