What To Expect On The Day

It’s natural to worry about what the driving test procedure might entail. However, once you get your head round it it’s really straightforward. On the day, you need to arrive 10 minutes early and make sure you bring your provisional licence. The format of the practical is 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:
    • 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

The test will last around 40 minutes and will end once you're back at Greenford Whitton Avenue East. The examiner will then tell you your result and give you a feedback sheet detailing any faults you made. If you're successful, the examiner will also hand you a test pass certificate. 

But What If I Fail?

If you do fail, we’d recommend getting back on the road as soon as possible, and a really good way of doing this is one of our refresher courses.
