What To Expect On The Day

So, your big day has finally rolled around. Congrats! You’re one step closer to becoming a fully qualified driver! On the day of your test, you’ll need to be punctual. Get to Workington test centre 10 minutes before your test starts. Make sure you’ve got your provisional with you, as the examiner will ask to see it before you begin. Once all the pleasantries have been exchanged, your test will follow this structure:

  • 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
