What To Expect On The Day

Don’t think you’re ready for your practical? Relax—you should be more than prepared after your lessons. All you need to do on the day is get to Bridlington 10 minutes early, with your provisional. Your practical will then proceed with: 

  • 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

Hate waiting for results? You’re in luck—you get your driving results straight away. Regardless of your result, you'll be handed a feedback sheet which will detail any faults you might have made during the test. If you pass your practical, you’ll also receive your test pass certificate and you’ll hand over your provisional in order to send off for your new licence. 

But What If I Fail?

Failure isn’t uncommon when it comes to driving tests. Anything could go wrong on the day of your test, but it’s important that you don’t give up no matter what happens. As long as you address the feedback given to you by your examiner, you should be able to improve in time for your next practical.
