    If there's a STOP sign or Solid Line across the road, you have to stop. If there's a GIVE WAY sign or broken line across the road, then you give way to other traffic. Exactly what it says on the tin...

    It doesn't matter about the junction type.

    With all due respect, eyre, if you don't know this then you aren't ready for your test and certainly not ready to drive unsupervised on the roads.

    Your instructor (assuming that one is involved) should be showing/teaching you all this.

    Assuming you've done your theory test (as the term 'driving test' would lead most to assume you're referring to the practical), then the above is evidence that the theory test has failed.

    Ah! I see. Sorry. Surely a theory test pass and practical lessons should mean that obvious stuff like this is second nature by now?

    As I said, it depends on the sign. Whether it's a STOP or GIVE WAY.

    As you would no doubt already know, if there are no cars coming on a GIVE WAY, then there is no need to stop...

    OK, but as I said before, if there is a STOP sign, you must STOP. If there is a GIVE WAY sign then you give way. There aren't any other options...

    Then look at the lines on the road. Every time you go over a white line that means something.

    There are some unmarked crossroads, if that's what you mean. No paint on the road, no signs showing the priority.

    The idea is to use your common sense, and pass through the junction only when you can see that it is safe.

    If two drivers are approaching an unmarked crossroads from different directions, and would collide in the junction if neither of them did anything about it, they have to sort it out between them to decide who goes first.

    But even at junctions marked with either Give Way signs or even Stop signs, it is still everybody's responsibility to avoid a collision. There is no such thing as 'right of way'.

    All this is explained in a little booklet called ' The Highway Code '.
