What To Expect On The Day

So, you’ve counted down the days and you’ve finally finished your driving course. What’s next? Your practical test. If you’re not feeling 100%, check out our guide on how to avoid test day nerves. On the day of your test, get to Worksop 10 minutes early and don't forget to bring your provisional. Your test will then follow this 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

Once you get back to Worksop test centre, your examiner will ask you to park the car and turn off the ignition. They’ll begin by telling you whether you’ve passed or failed—using a feedback sheet which detail any minors or majors you might have accumulated. You’ll get your test pass certificate if you pass—you can even send off for your new licence then and there. 

But What If I Fail?

If you fail, you shouldn’t dwell on it—plenty of learner drivers need another attempt to get it right. Think of it as a learning experience. If you’re poor at signalling or checking your mirrors, failing gives you the chance to improve. Want to get back on the road ASAP?
