The driving test is straightforward and has been designed to see if you: can drive safely, know The Highway Code and can demonstrate this through your driving
The test will include an eyesight test (if you fail this, your test will not continue).
After the eyesight test you will be examined on your general driving and on one reversing exercise. The reversing exercises will be chosen from, reversing around a corner, turning in the road, reverse parking. You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise. A standard driving test takes about 40 minutes.
During the driving test the examiner will give you directions which you should follow and will also include the independent drive. Test routes are designed to be as uniform as possible and will include a range of typical road and traffic conditions. During the test, the examiner will ask you to carry out set exercises
You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test. If at any time your examiner considers you to be a danger to other road users your test will be stopped.
