Why Observations at Junctions are the Bee's Knees

You don't need a telescope or binoculars to make effective observations at junctions; you just need to use your peepers properly! In the UK driving test, one of the top reasons for failing is, you guessed it, ineffective observations at junctions. These are the crossroads of life, or at least, the road. Mess up here, and you're not just failing a test; you're risking a proper pickle involving other road users.

The PassFan Way: Why Proper Observations are a Must

Being a PassFan isn't just about acing the test; it's about being a savvy road user. Effective observations aren't about a sneaky peek in the rear-view mirror. Oh no, it's a full-on, multi-step process to ensure you're as aware as a fox in a hen house. This includes:

  • Scanning your rear-view and side mirrors like you're in a spy film

  • Throwing a cheeky glance over your shoulder to catch those sneaky blind spots

  • Giving the road a good ol' once-over before you strut your stuff into that junction

  • Keeping an eye out for pedestrians, cyclists, and other characters on the road
