Last updated: 12 Nov 2019

Midrive’s video driving lessons are designed to give learner drivers an overview of some of the basic elements of learning to drive. They are for illustrative purposes only and are no substitute for real-life driving lessons. This video will explain the meaning of several UK road signs, in particular those which give warnings.

About warning signs (via Wiki): Signs in circular red borders are prohibitive, whether or not they also have a diagonal red line. Circular blue signs mainly give a positive (mandatory) instruction. Such circular signs may be accompanied by, or place on, a rectangular plate (information) that provides details of the prohibition or instruction; for example, waiting and loading plates and zone entry signs.
