Practical Driving Test Information

 
Your Instructor will assess your progress and recommend booking your Practical test to coincide with you being a safe driver and reaching the required standard to have a good chance of successfully completing the test requirements.

The Practical driving test lasts for approximately 40 minutes and your instructor will normally pick you up 1 hour before the test time and let you practice the set routines and drive to the test centre. They will then accompany you to the waiting room when at the appointed time the examiner will ask you to show them your documents (both parts of your Licence and your Theory pass certificate. We also recommend you take your appointment letter) then sign a test report form declaration to say the vehicle is insured. We can assure you all our vehicles are insured as well as thoroughly maintained.
 
The requirements for the test are:-
 
Vision
You must be able to read a vehicle number plate at 20.5 metres (67 feet) or the new style from 20 metres (66 feet). This is done just outside the centre.
 
Show Me Tell Me
You will be required to show or demonstrate safety checks regarding the vehicle. Your instructor will provide you with the questions and answers before the test date.
 
The Drive
It is conducted over varying road and traffic conditions. Good control and awareness is essential and you will be asked to undertake 2 reversing maneuvers. An emergency stop is required in 1 out of 3 tests. You can commit a maximum of 15 minor driving faults and still pass but over 15 or one serious or dangerous fault will result in a fail.
 
The Result
At the end of the test the examiner will give you the result. Hopefully you will have passed but if not he will explain any serious faults you may have. It is helpful to have your instructor present for this debrief, they will be able to explain anything you may not understand at a convenient time.
