Driving Lessons Branksome

If you are taking your driving lessons in and around Branksome you will need to deal with the Branksome double roundabouts, pictured here. Key skills that would apply here would be, good forward planning, a good understanding of lane systems, and good lane discipline. If you know the area, I will help you get orientated with the image. The road to the Left would lead to Westbourne, The road at the top leads to lower Parkstone, To the right is upper Parkstone, bottom right is Alder hills, and bottom left is the retail park. Now we have our bearings let me explain the lanes when taking the more complex route around these two roundabouts. When coming from Alder hills (bottom right) and going to Lower Parkstone (top), you will see as you approach the first of the 2 roundabouts the is a left arrow in both lanes, as you will be turning right at the second of the 2 roundabouts you would take up the right of these 2 lanes. It is a slightly strange feeling turning left from a right hand lane, but this is done so you can follow immediately into the right hand lane as you leave the roundabout, so your ready for the second roundabout, without having to do a lane change. I would also suggest you make a left signal to make this turn but don’t leave it on very long so other traffic does not think you are going to the left lane. You will then be already in the right hand lane for the second roundabout so this can be taken almost like you would take a normal right turn at a roundabout. However you may notice that as you are coming around this roundabout towards the lower Parkstone exit, The lane will gradually move you to the left as you pass the first exit, it has been designed this way to avoid the roundabout getting blocked at busy times. Also note that there is a pedestrian crossing just as you leave the roundabout, check this is clear as early as possible.
