The good old days of having to show your expertise in hand signals on your driving test!!! 😁😁

We still get hand signals from fellow motorists now but sadly they involve just one finger, sometimes two and sometimes fist like, as though trying to shake the last drop from a ketchup bottle. Wink

Those hand signals are still in the Highway Code as they must be.
Fantastic old world image.

I seem to recall many years ago when I were a lad, that in the Highway Code it showed how to use hand-signals! Nowadays, it only seems to be used in road rage... 🤬👍

I would certainly agree with this comment.

Yes, it does make you wonder how motorists responded in the unlikely event of road rage in those days.........ĒI say, you bounder, that really wasnít proper cricket, was it, sirí might have been a possibility? 🙂

I learnt hand signals when I took my test. Never used them though. You do not have to do a three point turn any more you can take as many maneuvers as you like. Reverse around a corner has gone. Think this is because there are always cars parked up to every corner.

Great photo Dave. Happy days when there was hardly any traffic!
