What To Expect On The Day

So you’ve crossed driving lessons off your list. All that’s left now is to take you practical test and hopefully come away with a full driving licence. Beyond remembering what you’ve covered in your lessons, there’s not much you need to do in the way of preparation. Simply get to Sevenoaks 10 minutes early with your provisional. Your test will then use this format:

  • 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

Before you know it, you’ll be back at Sevenoaks test centre and ready to hear your results. The examiner will walk you through any faults you made by using a feedback sheet, and will provide additional verbal feedback. If you’re unlucky, keep a hold of this sheet so you can work on these areas before you take another test. If you’re lucky, you’ll also be given a test pass certificate—it’s the perfect pass photo accessory!

But What If I Fail?

Plenty of learner drivers worry about failing their test, especially if their friends or family passed first time. Believe it or not, however, it can take someone a few attempts to pass the test. Some learners even take years to get it right. PassMeFast alumni Cheryl, for example, passed after 24 years from when she originally began learning. In short, it’s important not to let your disappointment put you off getting your licence.
