So you’ve had some lessons and the time has come to book your Practical Test (usually
we will advise you when we think you are ready). This can be done online or by calling
the Driving Standards Agency on 0300 200 1122 quoting ADI no 351389.
Always check with us before you book your test to make sure we are available on your
preferred date and time.
If you wish to take the test in your own car then you will need to provide an extra
interior mirror for the examiner’s use.
Try to get a good night’s sleep the night before your test as, understandably, you
will probably be quite nervous. After meeting your examiner you will be asked two
‘Show Me Tell Me’ questions. One or both questions answered incorrectly will result
in one driving fault being recorded. Then you’re off and running! The test will last
approximately 40 minutes and include 1 of the manoeuvres you will have been taught.
Your practical driving test will include approximately ten minutes of independent
driving to assess your ability to drive safely while making decisions independently.
At the end of the test you will find out the result immediately. Hopefully you’ve
passed and are ready for Pass Plus.
