What To Expect On The Day

The day of your driving test should be relatively straightforward. You’ll be expected to get to Lincoln test centre 10 minutes before your test is due to start. (Try not to get there any earlier, as you don’t want to get in the way of other candidates.) Once you meet your examiner, you’ll be asked to show them your provisional. Then, you’ll be able to get started on your driving test, which will follow this basic structure:

  • 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
