Do you reckon you know all signs on the UK roads? Here are the top 6 signs that most people get wrong on their theory test!

Junction on a bend

This sign simply means that there’s a junction on the upcoming bend. When you see this sign, you must take the bend with extra care to ensure that you’re safe.

Risk of overturning lorries

This sign warns drivers of a risk of lorries overturning on the bend to the left (or on the right if the symbol’s reversed).

Uneven road sign

When you see these signs take extra care when driving as they mean the oncoming road has an uneven surface.

Countdown markers – Motorway

Countdown markers give a warning to an exit to the motorway. Each bar represents 100 yards from the exit.

Countdown markers – Level Crossing

These have the same meaning as the motorway countdown markers, but the change in colour can confuse people.

No vehicles

When you see this sign, it’s often accompanied by a plate below with a further explanation – but it simply means “no vehicles”.
