    when the examiner asks you to just randomly pull over to the side of the road you indicate.

    then you have to cancel the indicator and they will ask you to carry on.

    when you do this, though, do you indicate to come back onto the road? because my driving instructor tells me no but everybody that i have spoken to otherwise says yes?

    thanks

    If you're waiting for a car behind to pass, then indicate right. If there's nothing coming at all then don't bother.
    That's what my instructor taught me, sorry if wrong.

    in my lessons i was told not to indicate pulling back onto the road... you should wait until there are no cars. so indicating would be pointless as there's not actually anyone to indicate to (passed my test 1st time)

    I'd indicate, best to do it rather than being penalized for not doing so. I had one driving instructor that told me to indicate and another that told me not to, so on my test I did.

    I've been taught to indicate when theres other road users around, including pedestrians, people getting in and out of cars, people loading and obviously other cars

    Its better to be safe than sorry tbh, I cant see what harm it will do

    I would indicate, if you have actually pulled across to the left, and are right by the pavement in a parking position.

    Obviously, if you have just halted in normal 'driving' lane position , in order to let an approaching car filter through a small gap (or if there is an obstruction on your side of the road), there's not much point in indicating.

    My instructor said if it's a quiet street and there's no one coming behind or infront of you and there are no pedestrians there's no need to indicate. However in a test I'd indicate regardless. No point taking the risk.

    you only dont indicate if there is NO one arround to benefit from the indication, EG just done a manuver in the quietest side road, not a person or car in sight then there is no need to indicate however if there are other cars/people in the area you must indicate.

    no, you do not.
    you would only indicate if you were parked on the pavement and were then coming back onto the road.

    not to be a *******, but in your test you should indicate whenever you would normally, because if you don't youll end up failing.

    I crapped up my first test for this and got three minors. The examiner was a bit of a nob, but I think what you're meant to do is wait for a decent gap, then indicate, and then move off.

    Don't just not indicate if you think there's nothing there, because you might have not noticed something and then you'll immediately fail for lack of observation. They can't penalise you for indicating here.

    I'd say indicate, but definitely check your blind spot in an exaggerated fashion, plus check all your mirrors because if he continually stops you like this then you're doing something wrong.
