Before you even get in the car, the examiner will ask you to read a number plate 20 or 20.5 metres away as part of an eyesight test. Once you’ve done so, you’ll be asked two questions—one before you start driving and the other whilst you’re driving—from the “show me, tell me” section regarding the maintenance of your car, e.g., “Show me how you would check the handbrake for excessive wear”. The independent driving section will require you to drive following a sat nav—1 in 5 learners however, will be asked to follow traffic signs. You’ll also be tested on the following manoeuvres:
Once the practical test is over, your examiner will let you know if you’ve passed or failed. If you’ve passed, you’ll get your test pass certificate. If you want them to send you your new licence, you’ll have to give them your provisional. If you failed your test, the examiner will let you know exactly where you went wrong. The practical test will take approximately 40 minutes.
If you failed your test, don’t worry about it—it can happen to a lot of people, especially if it’s their first time. You can make use of the feedback your examiner gave you to improve your driving before you go in for another test.
