Roundabout Driving Tips

Many accidents happen at roundabouts. Why? Simply because it’s not common and most people don’t know how to drive around them. Even people who already have gotten their Singapore driving license may still not fully remember how to drive around a traffic junction such as the Novena roundabout.

Hence, make sure you a roundabout well and not commit mistakes.

The following is a video animation showing the various circumstances which may occur when you enter and drive into a roundabout and the things you need to take note of.

Additionally, a roundabout does not have traffic lights to guide people, hence you need to memorize how to navigate and drive safely in such a situation by learning from a good school or private driving instructor in Singapore and remember the driving skills well.

I hope you don’t find the above task too daunting. In Singapore, there may not be many roundabouts in reality, however for other countries, there may be quite a number of them. Hence, you need to learn properly if there is even a small chance of you wanting to move overseas and drive on the roads there – as Singapore’s driver license is an international one, you should make good use of your driving lessons here and learn properly so that you can hit the road driving when you go to another country and navigate all sorts of road junctions with ease!

If you are looking to get your driving license and take your driving test Singapore, there are several things you may want to note down if you want to pass on your first attempt.

Missing by 1 mark will cause you to fail the entire exam. So don’t. Because it will waste more time and money. You want to pass on the first try.

2) Turn your head when checking for your blind spots and make the turning of your head as obvious as possible. The tester cannot see your eyes looking around and checking, you need to move your head in an obvious manner.

3) Do not drive over road strips or paintings on the road. This can potentially cause the car to aqua-plane and that will cause the car to skid. When that happens, you will not be able to pass your driving test.
