The video links below are there to assist you as you make progress in your driving lessons.
First of all, whenever I teach in Gillingham for example, pupils always ask me about the Tesco/Bowater’s roundabout. This is because they have heard bad things about it. To a certain degree, they would be right. It can either make or break a test in that area. Most test routes will incorporate this particular roundabout at the start, or at the end of the test. Consequently, a fair amount of lesson time will be spent covering it in great detail. 4½ years ago, I recorded some videos that show various approaches to the roundabout and how to negotiate it.

Further videos covering pressure areas around Maidstone will follow shortly.
In the meantime, would you know what to do if you’re on a driving lesson and one of the emergency services vehicles came into the area? It can be a pretty intimidating situation when it happens for the first time.
Hopefully, the following video will put your mind at ease, so please watch and learn from it
