    Visibility must be seriously reduced to 100m or less
    You're still driving along the motorway in thick fog. You notice the cats eyes to the right of you are red. What do you do?
    I'll give you options coz I'm nice.
    Stay in lane and continue on your journey
    Move one lane to the left
    Move one lane to the right
    Exit at the next junction

    Why?
    Oh wait, I'm confused now

    The red cats eyes are always on the left, so how can they be on the right of you?

    That's what you're supposed to figure out!

    The red cats eyes are on the leftt of the road, to show the hard shoulder. So if they're on your right it means you're on the hard shoulder

    I can't think of another one and I don't know where my highway code is. It used to be on my bedside table but isn't now.

    You are parked at night on a road (as in not a car park, lay-by or other such thing). The speed limit on said road is 40mph. What must you do?

    In this scenario or in general? Actually, I don't think the answer is any different lol.

    Double yellow, those zig zag lines and disabled parking spaces?

    Yeah, there's hundreds of places you can't park. Brow of a hill is a good one to remember.

    What is the closest you can park to a junction?
    Can you stop on double yellow lines to set down passengers?
    When can you leave the engine running when parked?
    What should you do when parking a manual car facing downhill?

    That is a good one, I've seen it come up in some mocks. Brow of a hill, noted!

    What is the closest you can park to a junction?
    At least 10m
    Can you stop on double yellow lines to set down passengers?
    I'm going to say no. I believe you can only pick up and set down passengers on a single yellow line.
    When can you leave the engine running when parked?
    Never
    What should you do when parking a manual car facing downhill?
    Tough one
    I'm going to say turn the steering wheel towards the curb

    You can stop on double yellow lines to load or unload, which includes passengers, as long as there are no other markings (yellow lines on the kerb) or signs that tell you not to.

    I specified manual car for a reason :p:

    I believe the second is end of dual carriageway. I'm also preparing for my theory even though it's ages away
    Have you got the £4.99 app?

    I think cherry forgot to add to put the handbrake on as well as steering towards the curb?

    Not saying none of them will come up Just some definitely won't. Still good to know these things though, no good finding out once you've passed and then you come across signs or situations that you have no idea of the ruling on :lol:
