Hi guys, I've got my P1 test soon and came across this issue when practising over the weekend, hoping the OZB experts could provide some clarification. Location is the Sphinx Ave / Gibson Ave / Watson Rd roundabout near Padstow
I'm approaching the roundabout from the SE along Sphinx Avenue, and my partner says "at the roundabout, take the first exit", so I undertake the movement path shown in blue in the above pictures. Afterwards, she says the movement was unsafe/illegal and would've failed me in my test. The correct movement was to take the Watson Road exit. If I wanted to turn left into Gibson Ave, I should've done the movement shown in red.
Her reasoning - The red path is like a slip lane. What I did was akin to approaching at intersection with a left slip, but instead of using the slip I turned left at the actual intersection. Even though there's no signage saying you can't do that, it's just wrong.
My reasoning - I think blue path is okay since the instruction was "take the first exit". There's also no signage to say that movement is illegal.
No hard feelings either way who's right or wrong, just want to get it right the since I'm taking my test at Revesby and it's quite close to this place.
