What To Expect On The Day

So, after what seems like a century, you’ve finally mastered the driving fundamentals needed to pass the practical. The only thing left is for you to put your money where your mouth is. Dun, dun, dun!

Before you let your excitement get the best of you, triple-check that you have your provisional before you leave for Dunfermline. You won’t be able to take the test without it. Next, get to the test centre 10 minutes before your test is due to start. Once you’ve met your examiner, you’ll make your way through your test as follows:

  • 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
