    I have my driving test coming up and I'm just thinking about what to do in a situation i've not been faced with before. For example, if I need to switch lanes to come off at a roundabout or move to the right lane before going on to a roundabout, but are unable to because there is a car behind you in that lane and there isn't space to move out before you reach the junction, what should you do?

    Stay in ie. the left lane and take a wrong turn to stay safe and tel the examiner?

    keep in the wrong lane ie. left lane at a roundabout even if you're going right and just check the mirrors extra carefully?

    The examiner should tell you ahead of time what turn you're about to make, giving you enough time to move into the correct lane beforehand. If there is no time to move across or you can't get past the traffic, then yes, you'll need to make a wrong turning and re-route. You must never use the left lane of the roundabout to make a right turn, that's an immediate driving test fail.

    You'll be told plenty in advance where you have to go and the examiner will be checking mirrors too so they'll know if it's too dangerous for you to move lanes. If that's the case, you'll be re-routed. Honestly, don't fret. You can't control where other cars are and the examiner knows that.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
