This is an image of the crossroads in the centre of Ferndown. Both roads on this crossroads are very busy, especially at rush hour, so I would like to give you some advice on how to deal with the more difficult turn. If you are turning right from Ringwood road (pictured top left to bottom right) into either of the other 2 roads you will see that there is a protected right turn to wait in. You can enter this box when your lights are green and wait for the oncoming traffic to clear. Just as you stop in the box ensure you steer your wheels so they are facing straight down the road not across the oncoming traffic. This is done in case a car drives into the back of your car, you would then roll into the empty space between the boxes rather than into oncoming traffic. keep one eye on the green light in front of you. When this goes red the oncoming traffic will also be stopped, ensure you see them stopping and then make your turn. If there is an oncoming vehicle also turning right, make sure it has not blocked any of your view before you make your turn.

We have driving instructors who are able to provide both Manual and Automatic driving lessons in Ferndown.  Our driving school is always looking to expand and we are currently looking for more experienced and friendly A.D.I’s to cover Ferndown and surrounding areas.

Driving Lessons West Moors, Ferndown

 When taking your driving lessons in and around the West Moors area you will have to deal with this short slip road joining and leaving the dual carriageway. It is normally best to maintain your carriageway speed until you have left a slip road but on shorter slip roads you may have to reduce your speed slightly before moving into the slip road, for this reason when leaving at a short slip road it is important to be aware of following traffic, so a very early mirror check is needed, followed by an early signal to give following drivers plenty of time to drop back or move around you. Before slowing check your mirrors again to ensure there is no traffic still following close, if there is and you have any doubt it may not be safe to slow, cancel your signal and don’t move off at the junction. This would be a very rare situation. As you leave the carriageway and travel down the slip road, just ensure you have reduced your speed enough for the bend after the slip road. When joining on this slip road, start by having a first check before you come around the bend, the view is quite open as you can see on the image and this will give you an early idea of what traffic might be on the carriageway. Take the bend at a safe and appropriate speed but be in a low gear ready to build speed quickly. After you’ve come around the bend check your centre and right mirrors to continue assessing the traffic on the carriageway, then build your speed to get alongside an appropriate gap in the traffic, signal and move onto the carriageway.

Impact School of Motoring have offered driving lessons in Tricketts Cross, Ferndown for many years. With our extensive experience we would like to give some advice to pupils on how to be safe dealing with one of  the most difficult roundabouts in Tricketts Cross.

 

Driving Lessons Tricketts Cross, Ferndown

 This roundabout next to Sainsbury’s in Tricketts cross frequently causes learners to make the same mistake. When turning right from Wimborne road east (pictured top left) into Ringwood road (Pictured bottom left), the second and third exits are very far apart. Drivers frequently wait until they can see the third exit before they check mirrors, signal and move to the left. This is too late as it can often give time for a driver coming straight down ringwood road (right to left in the image) to have time to come down your left hand side and they may be thinking you will be continuing around the roundabout as you’ve signalled late. The best way to not get caught out by this is to stick to the standard roundabout rules. As you pass the exit before the one you are going to take, check your mirrors, signal and move left at that point. You don’t have to wait to see your exit before you do this.
