The question about the parking near a junction isn't technically correct. You can park as close to a junction as you like, so long as it's an officially marked bay. Sense prevails (usually!) such that bays are a reasonable distance from a junction.
I'm having refresher lessons at the moment because I passed my test as a teenager and haven't driven since. I thought I'd be OK to drive, we hired a car, and then my girlfriend caught me whispering 'OK, now, left to right, accelerator, brake, clutch, oh, no, maybe it's the other way around' and point-blank refused to be in the same car as me unless I got some lessons.
Seems like I still have a fair knowledge of the highway code, though!
10/10. Thirty two years since I passed my motorbike test and haven't really looked at the highway code since then. Most of it is common sense, but there are a lot of drivers out there without any sense.
