Candidates are advised to use the OSMPSL routine
A good understanding of signs and road markings (per the Highway Code), helps with identifying both ends of one-way streets. A candidate’s response to one-way street markings and signs can be put to the test by the examiner giving directions that could trip-up poorly prepared candidates.
When turning left one-way streets, either at a T-junction or into a side road, candidates are advised to use the OSMPSL routine and position left of the centre whilst negotiating the junction.
Turning left one-way streets - position early
When turning left into a one-way street (side road), use the left-hand lane on entry but if needed it is acceptable to move straight into the right-hand lane. This could be because of parked vehicles in the left-hand lane. Turning left at a T-junction in a one-way street is the same as a normal left-turn at the end of a road.
Key points to remember:
- Use the OSMPSL routine
- Be sure to understand one-way signs & road markings
- Position early & be aware of overtaking vehicles
- When turning into side road, it’s acceptable to use the right-hand lane if necessary
