Practical Driving Test

Driving Test Centrecar Keys

There are three different types of faults that can be marked in your Driving Test as follows: -

A dangerous fault – this involves actual danger to either yourself, the examiner, another person or property such as a parked car. If you make a dangerous fault on your driving test you will fail.

A serious fault – this is something that could potentially be dangerous. If you make a serious fault on your test you will fail.

A driving fault – this is not potentially dangerous, however, if you make the same fault throughout your test it could become a serious fault. You are allowed to make up to 15 driving faults in your test and still pass. If you make 16 or more you will fail your driving test.

However, if at any time your examiner considers your driving to be a danger to other road users your test will be stopped.

Your practical driving test will include* approximately twenty minutes of Independent Driving with the aid of a sat-nav. This is designed to assess your ability to drive safely while making decisions independently.

*1 in 5 candidates will be asked to follow road signs.

How Do You Know When You Are Ready?

With many newbies on our roads, learner drivers tend to "jump the gun" or pressurised in pushing for a test when they are not truly ready. You need to recognised the answer for yourself to determine if you feel are ready for the driving test. Two main factors, the first being is your progress report. Is this completed? Are you marked as independent in every sector? A point where the instructor has not intervened.  Have you completed a number of mock tests and passed satisfactory ?

These are the keys to passing your driving test.
