Presumably all those people (always men its testosterone you know ) who just drive across roundabouts as if they dont exist are advanced drivers
The point is that a roundabout is a bit like a continuous merging junction. Ideally drivers should match their speed to that of traffic already on the roundabout and merge.

Stopping for no good reason is an absolute no-no and could fail you your test if there is someone behind you, as it is assumed that people approach expecting to continue!
