What To Expect On The Day

What’s next after completing your driving lessons? Your practical driving test of course! All that’s left for you to do on the day is:

  • Get there 10 minutes early
  • Bring your provisional licence

Think your test starts straight away in the car? Not quite! Before you get in the car, you’ll have to take an eyesight test. Then you’ll be asked one “show me, tell me” question—the other will be asked during your test route—regarding the maintenance of your car, e.g., “Identify where you’d check the engine oil level”. The independent driving section involves you following a route using a sat nav. Alternatively, 1 in 5 learners will be asked to follow traffic signs instead. You’ll also be tested on: 

  • Parallel parking
  • Bay parking
  • Pulling up on the right

Thankfully, you don’t have to wait long to find out if you’re successful or not. In fact, you’ll know immediately. If you’re successful, you’ll receive a test pass certificate and you’ll be able to send off for your brand new licence. If you’re unsuccessful, you’ll receive a feedback sheet addressing your mistakes. It should take 40 minutes overall and your ADI will typically drive you back home afterwards.

But What If I Fail?

Whether you want to think about it or not, failure is a rather common occurrence amongst learner drivers. The important thing is to not give up—just work on the mistakes in your feedback sheet and you’ll be just fine.
