Some drivers are only just realising what common road sign actually means
| Last updated
People are flocking to social media in appreciation after a driving theory test expert explained what a common road sign means.
Let's not lie, as soon as you pass your theory test, any knowledge surrounding road markings or signs goes pretty much out the window.
If you can't be bothered to download DVSA app again to make sure you don't run the risk of receiving any hefty fines, then it might be wise to take to TikTok, which, as always, appears to have all the answers to even the most random of questions.
Annie - who goes by 'Theory Test Practice' on TikTok - shared the video in October last year.
The post shows Annie standing next to a road sign which reads: "Mon - Sat, 8:00am-6:00pm, one hour. No return within one hour."
In the video, the driving theory test expert explains: "This sign is saying that between Monday and Saturday you can park between 8:00am in the morning and 6:00pm at night but only for one hour.
"No return within one hour, that simply means you're not allowed to drive out of your parking space, drive around the block and go straight back into that same parking space. Well, not for an hour anyway."
Followers of the theory test expert have flooded to the post, many grateful for the explanation.
One wrote: "I always thought no return within one hour meant, your not allowed to come back to the car for atleast an hour lol."
"I thought it meant u can’t park between them hours," another wrote.
A third commented: "I never got the no return within one hour! thanks for that!"
However, others still remain confused by the sign, with one even saying: "I am more confused now."
A second commented: "I still don't understand it."
Some chimed in with a bit more information to try and explain the sign further.
A user added: "Not just that space! Any other space on that road/car park where the sign is shown."
"Also, before 8:00am and after 6:00pm you can park there as long as you like," another wrote.
Annie has also shared videos with advice on speed limits, insurance and turning right on a dual carriageway.
And for those of you who've failed your test more than four times and still have a green provisional driving license - we all know someone - then Annie has even shared the 'Top 10 reads for failing a driving test'.
In response to the 'No return within one hour' road sign, a final user simply resolved: "The UK is simply fooked if we don’t understand that."
