What To Expect On The Day?

Not sure what to expect on the day of your practical test? That’s fine—it’s pretty straightforward. After completely your course, you should be completely test-ready. On the actual day of your test, all that’s left for you to do is:

  • Get there 10 minutes early
  • Bring your provisional licence

Practical tests always begin with an eyesight test so the examiner can make sure you can see the road ahead. And those “show me, tell me” questions you’ve been practicing for? The examiner will ask you one before you start driving and the other whilst you’re driving. The independent driving section is simple enough. You’ll be expected to follow a sat nav for 20 minutes. Note, however, that 1 in 5 candidates will instead be asked to follow traffic signs. Your route will also include manoeuvres: 

  • Parallel parking
  • Bay parking
  • Pulling up on the right

So, when do you know if you’ve passed? You’ll be told at the end of the test. If you pass, your examiner will give you your test pass certificate. To be sent your new driving licence, you’ll have to hand over your provisional. If you don’t pass, the examiner will walk you through where you went wrong. It should take around 40 minutes in all.

But What If I Fail?

Some people pass first time and others take a bit longer. If you are unfortunate enough to fail your test, you don’t have to worry. It’s easy enough to book another one with PassMeFast. We can have you booked in for another as soon as two weeks later, after the 10 working day limit stipulated by the DVSA. We even offer further tuition to give learners a confidence boost.
