A good understanding of signs & road markings is essential
Essential to dealing with one-way streets turning right is a good understanding of signs, road markings and the Highway Code, such that identifying both ends of one-way streets is possible. A candidate’s response to one-way street markings and signs will often be assessed by the Module Two test examiner, who can sometimes give directions that can trip-up poorly prepared candidates. When turning right in a one-way street either at a T-junction or into a side road, candidates are advised to use the OSMPSL routine and position right of centre whilst negotiating the junction.
One-way streets turning right - use the left-hand lane on entry where possible
With one-way streets turning right (side road), use the left-hand lane on entry where possible, but if needed, it is acceptable to move straight into the right-hand lane i.e. if there are parked vehicles in the left-hand lane.
Turning right at a T-Junction in a one-way street is a mirror image of the left turn. A candidate should move into the central position of right-hand lane on approach and angle the bike to the right at the mouth of the junction. Following the line of the kerb will help achieve the correct position.
Key points to remember:
- Use the OSMPSL routine on approach
- Be sure to understand one-way signs & road markings
- Position in the right-hand lane, it is a mirror image of turning left
- It’s alright to use the right-hand lane if the left-lane has parked vehicles
