What To Expect On The Day

So you’ve made it to the end of your driving course. Congratulations! Though you might be fighting nerves on your test day, you’ve simply got to remember that your instructor thinks you’re ready.

As desperate as you might be to get to High Wycombe test centre early, you should only get there 10 minutes before your test—any earlier and you run the risk of getting in the way of other candidates. Make sure you bring your provisional too or you won’t be allowed to take the driving test and your test fee will go to waste. 

Your test will then consist of:

  • An eyesight test, where you’ll need to read a number plate from a distance of 20 metres
  • Two “show me, tell me” questions covering vehicle safety and maintenance
  • Twenty minutes of general driving, where you’ll be guided by the examiner, and will also need to perform one of the following manoeuvres:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

After around 40 minutes, the test route will finally loop back to High Wycombe test centre. The driving examiner will ask you to park the car and wait for them to complete their feedback. Once they’re done, they’ll let you know whether you’ve passed or failed. You’ll be able to see which areas you picked up faults in, e.g., observations at junctions, with the feedback sheet or email sent to you via the driving test app.

But What If I Fail?

Whilst you’ll likely disagree, it’s really not the end of the world if you end up failing your test. Despite what you might have heard, plenty of learners fail the practical. Instead of letting it put you off driving, however, you should use it as motivation to improve. If your confidence has taken a real nosedive, you might even want to consider a refresher course.
