How to use a Flush Median
It’s alright to drive on a flush median for a short distance if you’re turning into or out of a side road or driveway. You can use them to slow down before making a right-hand turn, or to merge left into a gap in the traffic flow.
If you’re using the flush median to make a right-hand turn you should indicate, then steer gently onto the median rather than at an abrupt angle. Use the median as an area to slow down and brake. This way the following traffic doesn’t have to slow down rapidly to avoid you.
Carry out a similar manoeuvre if you’re using the flush median as a refuge before merging into traffic on your left. Remember to indicate and check your mirrors, accelerate, and move gently into a gap in the traffic.
When you’re using a flush median, always remember to watch out for pedestrians, other vehicles using the median and any raised islands.
When you approach an intersection, and you can't see after you have stopped, tell the testing officer you are moving a little bit forward to see.
Don't just move forward - they might think you are taking off.
If there are vehicles coming from the left and you can sort of see them, wait for them to pass and then tell the testing officer you are moving forward to see.
