He was referring to the OP, not you. This is clear from the way he quoted the OP and didn't just post a seemingly random comment 120 posts into the thread in the middle of what is now a completely different discussion

Don't forget that if you've missed a junction you are legally allowed to reverse back down the hard shoulder to the missed junction.

Quicker to just do a U-turn if no-one is looking.

I'm pretty sure dual carriageway driving is part of most peoples lessons and the test can include dual carriage ways.

You've passed your test and never driven on anything but single carriageways?

You absolutely should have done dual carriageway driving in your lessons and probably even your test. Or at the very least, multi lane single carriageway.

Even greater tip... Don't indicate and take 30 seconds to lane change moving 0.1 inches at a time. Indicate and GET IN UR GOD DAM LANE.

Amount of tards on the M25 today taking 15-20 seconds to fully move into the next lane was mental... accident waiting to happen.

Personally if OP is new, would recommend staying off Motorways in the current rain... not a friendly environment.

I was doing 70 on a dual carriageway on my second lesson. I think you should ask for a refund.

I went on a dual carriageway on my second lesson. I think I was too scared to do 70...

This is why I love having the A3 so close to my house. It's basically an A-road motorway. Learnt all my "motorway" driving on that.

Same, took me on the A1 for a junction...went on dual carriage nearly every lesson. I'd try to get a different instructor or blah 30mins extra for free.

Me too. I got shouted at by my instructor when I didn't do things properly.
