A little bit more info about your practical test:

The driving test is designed to see if you can drive safely, know The Highway Code and can demonstrate this through your driving. It will start with an eyesight check. You must be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres. If you can’t, you will fail the test.

Next you will be ask two questions from the Show Me, Tell Me question bank. Fail to answer either question correctly and you will score one minor fault.

The driving part of your test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises.

You will have to successfully perform one of the following reversing exercises:

  • Parallel park OR bay park
  • Pull up on the right side of the road and reverse


Independent Driving

The independent driving section of your test is approximately 20 minutes long. You will have to drive by either following a series of directions or a ‘Satnav’ system. The examiner may show you a diagram to help you understand where you’ll be going. It doesn’t matter if you don’t remember every direction, or if you go the wrong way.

The purpose is rather to assess your ability to drive safely whilst at the same time having to make your own decisions in order to reach your target destination. This includes for example deciding when it’s safe to pull over and ask for directions.
