The Eyesight Test


 

You must first demonstrate to the examiner that you can read a motor vehicle registration plate from a distance of 20 metres - with the aid of glasses or contact lenses if needed. If you cannot pass the eyesight test, you will not be allowed to take the driving test. The test will be marked as a fail.

Safety Questions


 

After the eyesight test the examiner will ask you two safety questions regarding your vehicle. These are known as the 'show me, tell me' questions, all of which will be fully covered during your training. To answer these questions fully you may be required to open the bonnet.

Passing Your Test


 

The examiner will take your old licence from you, scan the details and send them electronically to the DVLA. You will then be given a pass certificate to prove you passed your test (enabling you to drive in the meantime). DVLA will then send you your new full licence by post within four weeks of you passing your practical test.

 

 The Driving Test

After the safety questions the examiner will explain that you will be tested on your general driving and on one reversing exercise. The reversing exercise will be chosen from: reversing around a corner, turning in the road or reverse parking. You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise.

During the driving test the examiner will give you directions which you should follow. Test routes are designed to be as uniform as possible and will include a range of typical road and traffic conditions.

A section of the driving will involve being tested on independent driving.  During this part of the test the pupil will be asked to drive for approximately 10 minutes either following a series of directions or by following traffic signs, or a combination of both. If required, the examiner may show the pupil a simple diagram of the intended route to follow.

Throughout the test you should drive in the way your instructor has taught you. If you make a mistake, don’t worry or panic, it might be a less serious driving fault and may not affect your result. The examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving. You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test. If at any time your examiner considers you to be a danger to other road users your test will be stopped. You are allowed to take someone with you on the test if you wish, but they are not allowed to help or take any part. Many applicants chose to have their instructor in the back of the car for moral support!

 


Failing your Driving Test

DON'T PANIC! many people fail their test first time! If nerves got the better of you or you found yourself not prepared on the day do not over-react. Collect yourself and be practical. If you fail the test you should ask the examiner for some feedback to help prepare yourself for your next test. Your driving report form will also show you where you made your mistakes. You can take another practical test 10 working days later.
