24 Pedestrian crossings

Pedestrian CrossingsThere are several types of pedestrian crossings that you may encounter on the test.

What the examiner is looking for

The examiner is checking that you

  1. Use the MSM routine in good time on approach
  2. Reduce your speed on approach if people are waiting to cross and you think the lights are about to change to red or that someone may step on to the road or if your view of the crossing is restricted
  3. Do not beckon anyone to cross
  4. Slow down and give way to pedestrians already crossing
  5. Slow down and stop if the lights change to amber and then red
  6. Slow down and stop if pedestrians are about to cross at a zebra crossing
  7. Stop behind the designated stop/give way line
  8. Do not straddle the crossing area when in queues of traffic and keep behind the stop/give way line until it is safe to proceed and sufficient space is available to clear the crossing area
  9. Do not move off until the lights turn to green and it is safe to do so. Unless on a pelican crossing in which case you can proceed on flashing amber if it is safe to do so
  10. Do not wait unnecessarily when the amber light at a pelican crossing is flashing and no one else intends to cross in front of you
  11. Are courteous and patient.
