Practical Driving Test
At the beginning of the test you will be required to read a number plate at a distance of 20.5 - 21metres (depending on plate type, since 2001).Before moving off on the test you will be asked two ‘show me/tell me’ questions. The test will last approximately 40 minutes, consist of driving on a variety of roads including dual carriageways, over a course of about 6.5 miles. During the test candidates will be expected to carry out two set exercises including reversing and possibly an emergency (controlled stop). Candidates should also expect to be asked to stop at the side of the road and move off again several times during the test.
Driving test candidates should aim to make as few driving faults as possible. A high standard of driving is expected and is needed to pass the practical test.
FJ’s Driving Tuition carry out periodic mock tests to ensure candidates are ready to take the practical test. Candidates should have a realistic chance of passing before booking a test.
