This is from the marking guidelines given out to ADI Instructors, Now the question is, why?
Because we have to allow that our pupils may do tests in any part of the country and not just in a built up area. In a country test centre if you drive on hatch markings when the road is not very busy you will get marked.
Don't get me wrong I do agree with you and 2010. Because this is what makes it hard to explain. The problem is "it so depends on the situation".
I think both of you will agree with the above i will be very surprised if you don't.
