What To Expect On The Day

Once you’ve completed your driving lessons, you should be more than ready to take your practical test at Rotherham test centre. The only thing left for you to do on your big day is get to Rotherham 10 minutes early with your provisional. Your test will include: 

  • 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:
    • Parallel parking
    • Bay parking
    • Pulling up on the right
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

You’ll find out whether you’ve passed or failed at the end of your practical. Your examiner will give you your test pass certificate if you passed or feedback to help you in the future if you failed. To send off for your new licence, you first have to hand over your provisional. In all, it should only last 40 minutes or so.

But What If I Fail?
