What To Expect On The Day

Ta-da! You’ve completed your driving lessons and you’re only one small step away from getting that brand new licence! All that’s left to do is pass your driving test. On the day of your practical, all you've got to do is remember your provisional and get to Chorley 10 minutes early. The test will then 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

Once you get back to Chorley test centre, you’ll get to see if your hard work has paid off. The examiner will give you a feedback sheet, which they will then discuss with you—looking in particular at any driving test faults you might have made. If you pass, you'll get a test pass certificate and you'll be able to send off for your new licence. 

But What If I Fail?

It doesn’t matter if your best friend passed on their first try with no faults; everyone is different. You need to learn from your mistakes and use your feedback sheet to improve your driving before you get back in the ring—if you need more tuition, check out our refresher courses.
