What To Expect On The Day

If you’ve not had the chance to read up on the layout of your practical test (or ask your instructor) you don’t have to worry—we’ve got you completely covered. All you've got to do is arrive 10 minutes early and bring your provisional licence. The practical test will then consist of:

  • 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:
    • Parallel parking
    • Bay parking
    • Pulling up on the right
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Your test route will eventually lead back to Belvedere test centre. Once you've parked up, you'll be given your result. No matter if you pass or fail, the examiner will give you a feedback sheet listing any faults you made, as well as extra verbal feedback. Those who are successful will be given a test pass certificate to show off.

But What If I Fail?

If you need another crack at the practical test, it’s not a big deal. In fact, you’ve got a cheat sheet for your next try—your feedback sheet will tell you exactly what you need to work on to come out on top next time.
