I get things wrong like when exiting a roundabout to the right for example..how soon should i indicate and move back into the inside lane also?
Indicating on approach, this depends on the traffic around you. The three magic words here are "in good time". If you need to change lanes to your right before the roundabout, you may need to give an early "asking" signal if it's busy so people can let you in. Otherwise, just signal before you move position.
Indicating to the left once you're on the roundabout, do this just after passing the penultimate exit (the exit before the one you want). TIP: only count roads you can travel down as exits. On big roundabouts near motorways / dual carriageways, you shouldn't count the entrance roads where cars come on
to the roundabout, only exits where cars go off
As for moving to the left lane, only do this when it is safe after 2
mirrors and your left indicator. Centre mirror, left door mirror, then react to what you see
. If you've done it correctly, it's highly unlikely that anyone will be on your left when turning right, but you never know.
Finally, don't take all day with these procedures. If you drive too slowly round the roundabout, signal too late or move over too late, the ******** behind you may well steal your intended exit lane and make life very difficult. As a very last resort
, you can always go around again if it's safer, but this is extremely rare.
