Tips on driving in the country

Driving in the country can be quite a different experience to driving around towns and on motorways.

Firstly, depending where you are, the road quality can be very variable and bumpy and certainly less comfortable than main roads in and around towns and cities.

Secondly in some areas the roads can be little more than tracks and you can have extremely low visibility, with roads that are just a cars width wide and bends in the road that appear to be almost blind.

Whilst you can go 60mph on a single carriageway and 70mph on a dual carriageway you will find that you will need to go a lot slower on country roads.

There are also various signs that you will come across that prewarn you and so it is particularly important with country driving to know what the various hazard signs mean.

For instance you may see a sign telling you that a bend ahead is particularly sharp, or perhaps that there is a dip in the road - be sure to learn all these sorts of signs from the highway code: if you are studying for your theory test then login to the site and practice all the theory test questions which includes several questions on road signs and what they mean.
