    Hi, im 17 and i am learning to drive. My lessons are going really well and my test is booked for 3:50pm on Monday, today is Friday. I am nervous but not nervous to the extent it would affect my driving during the test. My main problem is roundabouts, i find them easy when on them and leaving them such as the correct lane and signalling however with big roundabouts, joining them is my problem however only with the big ones the “ normal “ sized ones and smaller ones ive never had a problem. In my city (Derry) Northern Ireland there is two large roundabouts called Caw Roundabout and Altnagelvin Roundabout (smaller than caw however). Especially with caw roundabout which is 3 lanes, 4 exits i cant seem to know when to go out when its busy. Sometimes im great and theres a clear gap whilst others i think theres a gap and the cars beside me even go but my instructor dual breaks and tells me off☹️ i know sometimes that it wasnt a good gap and too quick however others i feel that i could of got out fast. I know how to tell gaps and to look for the direction of car wheels and their speed etc but is there anymore tips as i would hate to fail on the roundabout☹️. Ill insert a picture of caw roundabout.

    Generally, if there's 3 lanes and yoy were approaching from say the southern most road,if you wanted to take the first left go in the far left, straight over so northern most exit, go in the middle lane, and if you're exiting to the east, go in the furthest right lane.

    When you leave the exit make sure you are in the right lane so you don't have to cut across at the last minute, that would be needed if you were exiting east, you'd need to cut across to the middle lane. Do this when you get past the exit to the north.

    You know the 12 o'clock rule, right?
