I came across this ...

How Well Do You Know British Rules of the Road?

About This Quiz

Whether you're traveling to Britain, or are just curious, you're going to get a serious crash course in driving in the UK. If you fail and get fed-up, just say "bollocks" and jump on a double-decker bus.

at https://play.howstuffworks.com/quiz/how-well-do-you-know-british-rules-the-road

but beware - most of the questions aren't actually about the British rules of the road.

34/35 - I assumed that most cars are now automatic.

32/35: Beware the use of American English. Traffic light sequencing is not fully understood, and they have not heard of 'gyratories'.

Beware the use of American English.

I lost any interest in pursuing it further with those warnings ringing in my ears.  Roll Eyes

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

35/35 and I have never held a full UK driving licence so would suggest this ‘quiz’ doesn’t tax the brain cells too severely.

I have learned that Americans call the hard shoulder the hard shoulder.  Grin
A couple of inaccuracies: they got traffic light sequencing wrong and they missed that a roundabout is actually a play area for a floppy dog and a moustached chap on a spring.

I correctly answered all the questions up to about half way through, I then gave up due to all the adverts.
