Motorists are being reminded to maintain their knowledge of road signs after passing their driving test.

Experts at leading car supplier LeaseCar.uk believe many drivers fail to keep up their knowledge of road signs and many have little idea what the signs they pass every day actually mean.

Whether you’ve been driving for three years or 30 years, there are some road signs that you very rarely see, so on the odd occasion you do come across them you don’t have a clue what they’re indicating towards.

You may have a rough idea or be able to hazard a guess at some of them, but the most obscure ones might leave you nonplussed.

Tim Alcock from LeaseCar.uk said: “Once you’ve been on the roads for a few years, it’s easy to think that you know everything and anything there is to know about running a vehicle and cruising from A to B.

“But what about when you venture beyond your usual driving haunts, and you’re met with a road sign you’ve possibly never seen before?

“For the most part, the signs can be roughly interpreted and if you had to hazard a guess, you probably wouldn’t be far off.

“Nevertheless, we’ve picked out some of the most obscure and uncommon road signs to help British drivers get clued up before heading out on any annual road trips this summer.”
