What To Expect On The Day

Confused about what happens on the day of the driving test? Well, you’ve got to get to Newport Gwent ten minutes before your test starts. You’ll then need your provisional to hand when you meet the driving examiner. Once all the pleasantries have been exchanged, you’ll then proceed to follow this basic process:

  • 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
