Highway Code Changes for Cyclist

New driving regulations, including changes to who gets priority at roundabouts, will come into effect on 29 January.

Rule 186 now says: “Give them plenty of room and do not attempt to overtake them within their lane. Allow them to move across your path as they travel around the roundabout.

As well as roundabouts, this hierarchy will be in effect at all junctions and crossings.

it means, for example, that when a car is turning into or exiting a road, they should stop to let pedestrians cross.

Driving Tests to Restart 12th April 2021

Maybe some good news finally! The Government have announced that driving tests will be able to restart on Monday 12th April 2021. We assume this includes theory tests at this moment in time as well.

We are currently awaiting an announcement from the DVSA in regards to when driving lessons can recommence.

It make sense to allow driving lessons to restart 1 or 2 weeks before testing resumes so that learners can get in some long-awaited practice before taking their driving test. This would coincide with the 29th March date where the Government reduce the restrictions from the first step which is the 8th March 2021.
