Driving Theory Help???Watch
Whilst I am complaining can someone explain the logic of questions about exact stopping distances (wtf does 53m look like on a road), about the car itself (ie what is a catalytic converter for as somehow knowing this benefits me?) or the difference between a pelican and toucan crossing. I know the two second rule (four in rain), that the car has emissions and that I cant run people/horses/fish over particularly so at crossings so why do I need to answer questions that have no relevance to anything other than being needlessly pedantic?
As you can probably tell, quite frustrated as I feel cheated given I got 68 on the perception bit and have been driving for a long time prior (mock practical's vary between 1 - 6 minors) so any help would be appreciated
EDIT - GCSE did teach me what a catalytic converter is aha but thanks to the only person who replied so far =) I just don't see why its on the theory test
They are ceramic and are covered in a thin layer or Palladium, Rhodium or Platinum which gives a large surface area
I think the sign you’re talking about is the one of the toad? It basically just means you’re near a toad crossing point.
Pelican crossings have a flashing amber light which requires you to give way to pedestrians on the crossing, if it’s safe to go whilst the amber light is flashing then you can. Usually they have a beeping sound when pedestrians are crossing.
Toucan crossing is a crossing used by both pedestrians and cyclists.
Most of the questions are based on common sense, but all of the road signs and questions about crossings are in the highway code you just have to read it thoroughly.
For my theory I just practised by doing mock tests such as this - http://toptests.co.uk, the first few are easy and then it gets harder, but I’d say if you get all of those questions right then you’d be fine in your theory test. But do look at the highway code as well!
Hope this helps
