West Wickham Test Route PART 2 (Towards Addington)

hello and welcome to part two of our exploration of the West Wickham driving test area I'm Chris and in this video we're going to do some independent driving towards Addington this is one of the driving test routes that you might go on as usual it's all about planning ahead looking out for signs so the sign says that we have to turn left it's the first exit towards Addington see a zebra Crossing coming up and then the road really widens out here so we really keeping left but observing early to the right being ready to go taking the first safe opportunity a little bit of an awkward angle that one got Ze crossing here not in use but might be in use on the day of your test the independent driving part of your driving test can last anything up to 10 minutes and there might be up the three road signs for you to watch out for as usual though just plan ahead look out for all signs we see a sign warning us of school nearby and the Zeal Crossing we're scanning both sides of this making sure no one wants to cross if you do forget where you're going on your driving test you can always ask examiner for help you won't get penalized for that see a bus stop coming up cycle path on the left to avoid the markings in the center of the road are telling us to keep left no overtaking see a van parked on the left not in the road at all another a bus stop got double Bend coming up we're going uphill slightly but the car's not struggling so there's no need to change down gears Bend to the left markings in the center are telling us not to overtake another sign coming up sign is telling us to turn left at the roundabout first exit for Addington so we're keeping in Lane again observing early to the right it might be clear we just slow down change down keeping left see the two lanes merging into one as we go down Gravel Hill it's quite a steep hill we kept in a low gear here used a bit of engine breaking this keeps the car slow and in control but when the hill is not as steep then you could change up but be ready the car will try and go a little bit faster so maybe have that brake ready now the road splits into two lanes here we see a 40 mph sign but it's only 40 mph once you pass the speed limit sign so don't speed up when you see the sign only get up to 40 mph if the condition allow it and it's safe to do so now we're keeping in the left hand lane here as we're not overtaking planning ahead all the time see some traffic lights coming up pedestrian Crossing and then we have a tram Crossing anticipate that lights might change as you approach those green lights we're still following the road towards Addington the next sign is telling us that we need to turn left first exit we'll have to change into the left hand Lanes we checking the mirrors blind spot signal the look out for this pedestrian Crossing got a really good view on this roundabout observing early making sure you cancel the signal here in case people think you want to turn left another tram cross in and that would be the end of the independent driving of this section of the driving test pedestrian Crossing coming up at the roundabout we will follow the road ahead and it's the second exit heading back to West Wickam so really keeping in the left hand lane of this wired roundabout when you go to exit the roundabout there'll be a cycle path still on a 40 mph speed limit Road and then we're heading back towards West Wickham that's the end of part two of our exploration of the West Wickham driving test area again hope it's been useful if it has then please give us a thumbs up at the bottom of the screen and we'll see you on the next video thanks for watching
