As you would with any other kind of intersection, you’ll need to look well ahead (about 12 seconds ahead) when you are approaching a multi-lane roundabout. This will help you work out the lane and the exit you will need to take to get where you want to go. Make sure to look for lane markings and signs ahead to help you do this.

Important tips

  • Look out for large vehicles such as buses that could move out of their lane and let them go first. 
  • If you need to change lanes to get to your exit while travelling on the roundabout, follow the correct procedure for changing lanes.
  • Practise on simple roundabouts to build your confidence before moving on to a multi-lane one.
  • Stay alert at all times as some drivers can give signals that are misleading at roundabouts.
