16 Adequate clearance

Adequate clearanceWhen passing stationary vehicles or other obstructions it is important that you keep a certain distance away.

What the examiner is looking for

The examiner is checking that you do not get too close to the rear, the side or the front of a stationary vehicle or object as you pass it. You need to give at least a metre clearance if at all possible.
