I have my test tomorrow morning at 8:20 and I feel mostly confident however there is a roundabout right at the start of the test where I have had 3 or 4 people that I know get major hesitation failures at the same time due to how busy the roundabout is. I just have one question about two lane roundabouts. If I am turning left and there are no cars currently in the left lane on the roundabout but there are cars in the inside lane, am I allowed to go onto the roundabout or must I wait for both lanes to be completely clear in order to enter the roundabout? Just want to make sure I don't pick up a stupid hesitation fault for no reason.

If the cars on the inside lane of the roundabout are stationary and don't look like they are about to start moving then you can go, but if the cars are moving it's safer to wait as you won't be able to anticipate any of them cutting into the outside lane and thus crashing into you or cutting you up.

Presumably you mean the outside lane, not the inside.

In theory, yes, you should be able to turn left.. it's a pet peeve of mine that people don't.

Whether I would do it on a test though.. probably not.
