What To Expect On The Day

Congratulations! You’re one step away from holding that pink licence! The only thing that’s in your way is the driving test. As nerve-racking as it might seem, just remember that it’s only forty minutes long—that’s less than a typical driving lesson. It’ll be over before you know it!

To give yourself enough time to park the car and meet the examiner, get to Kirkcaldy ten minutes before your test starts. After showing the examiner your provisional and signing a form, you’ll make your way through the 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
