What To Expect On The Day

Getting cold feet on the approach to your driving test? Relax! Your instructor wouldn’t let you go in for your practical if they didn’t actually think you were ready. You’ve got this!

Now that you’ve already got the skills for the test, all you need to do is familiarise yourself with what happens in it. First things first though, you’ll need to double check that you have your provisional. The examiner will ask to see it as soon as you meet them. You’ll also want to be punctual—the DVSA recommends that candidates arrive 10 minutes before their appointment starts.

Your practical will then follow 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
