A Bit More About Greenock

Though there are plenty of nice views in Greenock, you won’t get much of a chance to enjoy them whilst behind the wheel. Instead, you’ll be focusing on mastering your skills on the local A78 and the residential roads of Larkfield.

What To Expect On The Day

If your instructor hasn’t gotten around to walking you through what happens on a driving test, we’ll give you a quick rundown.

You’ll get to Greenock test centre ten minutes before your test is supposed to start. This will give you time to park the car and meet the examiner. Before you get started on your test, you’ll need to show the examiner your provisional licence (so don’t forget it!) and sign a quick form.

Once that’s out of the way, your driving test will 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:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

With PassMeFast, you get to spend two to five hours behind the wheel at a time—depending on whether you’re learning intensively or semi-intensively—which will help your muscle memory and confidence develop in a shorter amount of time.

You’ll collaborate with your local ADI to fit these hours in around your schedule and work towards your test date which we’ll book at a time and date that suits you!
