The Highway Code – Dual Carriageways

At High Alert Driving School we like to share some of the rules from the highway code that the Driving and Vehicle standards agency have sent out as very helpful email reminders. Here is the latest Rule.

A dual carriageway is a road which has a central reservation to separate the carriageways.

Rule 137

On a two-lane dual carriageway you should stay in the left-hand lane. Use the right-hand lane for overtaking or turning right. After overtaking, move back to the left-hand lane when it is safe to do so.

Rule 138

On a three-lane dual carriageway, you may use the middle lane or the right-hand lane to overtake but return to the middle and then the left-hand lane when it is safe.
