4 leafed clover is all I'm saying.
"even if you happen to be driving a superior vehicle." Ha ha ha ha hahaha ha ha hahaaaaaaa - that explains your user name (lol)
That's a relief (y) The number of young uns on R plates I see where I live that don't signal is crazy regardless of conditions, an ad' campaign is required I think (shock)
So if they can’t guarantee to of seen every road user or if visibility is poor, then they will be taught to signal. They would only get away with not signalling if they were somewhere where one isn’t required. So to answer your original question, yes they are taught to signal moving off if one is required, and if in doubt they would be taught to signal. But often they forget to.
Seeing as you can't guarantee you've seen every other road user, especially when visibility is poor, if you're involved in some form of RTA and had not signalled your intentions you run the risk of falling foul of the law. I'd recommend to anyone being taught that it's acceptable to not signal your intentions to think carefully :o
