How to judge a Kerb: Your instructor may show you a focal point. You are also allowed to put your window down and stick your head out briefly to check the kerb. You shouldn’t be looking in one position for too long. So only quick glances.

Priorities: On coming vehicles have priority, so as they get closer to you, you will need to stop and let them past. It’s safer to stop first then look and assess. If the oncoming vehicle waits for you, then you can proceed with caution.
