What To Expect On The Day

Finally ready for your big day? Now you’re familiar with Bredbury test centre and its surrounding area, you should be more than prepared for your practical. The only thing you need to do on the day is get there 10 minutes early, with your provisional licence. The test will then follow this layout: 

  • 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

Once you get back to Bredbury test centre, you’ll get your result. The examiner will carefully go through feedback with you—both written and verbal. They will also hand you a test pass certificate, if you are successful. If you'd like to send off for your full licence then and there, you'll have to hand over your provisional. 

But What If I Fail?

Don’t worry if you failed your practical—it’s more common than you’d think. Instead of dwelling on it, you should move on. Take the feedback your examiner gave you, and use it to improve your driving skills before your next practical test.
