Video Lesson
Dealing with Other Road Users

This clip shows you the correct way to overtake a cyclists, a horse rider and a jogger.

Give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would a car when overtaking.
If they look over their shoulder whilst you are following them it could mean that they may soon attempt to turn right. Give them time and space to do so.

When passing animals, drive slowly. Give them plenty of room and be ready to stop. Do not scare animals by sounding your horn or revving your engine. Look out for animals being led or ridden on the road and take extra care and keep your speed down at left-hand bends and on narrow country roads. If a road is blocked by a herd of animals, stop and switch off your engine until they have left the road.

Practice makes perfect, so get plenty of practice from a Approved Driving Instructor.
