With years of driving experience under your belt, how do you think you will fare in a quick road rules test?

Have a go at answering these three questions:

  • Can you do a U-turn at a set of traffic lights?
  • Do you have to use your left indicator when leaving a roundabout?
  • Who needs to give way at an intersection?
