What To Expect On The Day

Learners are always surprised as to how fast the practical test creeps up on them. One minute, it seems months away—and the next, it’s just around the corner. The important thing to do is keep a clear and level head—panicking will get you nowhere. On the day, make sure you get there 10 minutes early and bring your provisional. The test will then proceed 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

The test route will end once you're back at Hayes test centre. The examiner will tell you your result and hand you a feedback sheet with any driving faults you might have made. If they feel it necessary, they'll also give you additional verbal feedback. Successful candidates will be given a test pass certificate. 

But What If I Fail?

Failure is always a possibility with most things we do in life—so don’t dwell on it! If you fail, get your instructor to work with you on the areas you received driving faults in. Once you’re ready to take on the test again, give us a call on 0333 123 4949 or contact us online to get us to book you a fast-track practical test.
