Notes on the Driving Fault Marking Guidelines


An applicant should give a correct signal in good time before moving off, overtaking, changing lane, roundabouts, turning right, turning left, and stopping, or a fault may be recorded for 'Signals' as appropriate.

A 'Signal' fault may also be recorded where an applicant does not cancel a signal after use, or gives a misleading signal, or beckons to other road users.

A misleading signal to other road users is defined as (a) having a left-hand signal on when turning right (b) having a right-hand signal on when turning left, or (c) having a left-hand signal on too soon when taking the second or subsequent exit at a roundabout.

Hand Signals

If 3 or more hand signals are not demonstrated or are incorrectly demonstrated a grade 2 fault should be recorded.
