Module 5 - Dual Carriageway Driving


Driving on Dual Carriageways.


Dual Carriageway Driving

Dual carriageway driving is often high speed driving on roads where both carriageways are separated by a central reservation.

Because these roads are driven at high speeds, it is necessary to have attentive driving skills to deal with this type of road safely.

The skills needed include:


Dual Carriageway Driving

  • effective observation, using your mirrors and checking blind spots
  • judgement and planning ahead
  • separation distances
  • joining and leaving a dual carriageway
  • overtaking and lane discipline
  • the correct use of speed
