Junction Ambiguity

Hello there, just failed my C test and one thing noted was my hesitancy at a T-junction waiting to turn right.  One instructor stressed not causing anyone else to slow down, so wait for a clear spot in both directions, while another suggested waiting for a clear spot on the right and slowly nudging out hoping either for a clear spot from the left or someone slowing to let me out.  During my test I waited, was I wrong?

Thanks.

Re: Junction Ambiguity

When you a join a new road you must not cause another vehicle to change speed or direction.

If you are turning right you must wait until it is clear in both directions before proceeding.

Hesitancy can be marked down when the driver stops or arrives at a junction and is not pre-prepared to move off again. ie stop the vehicle when there is nothing coming, apply handbrake, then select moving off gear, when they should have kept rolling and used clutch control to move off.
