Practical driving test
When that all important time comes around to take your final test it is important to stay calm. Remember, your instructor wouldn’t be taking you on this test if they did not feel you are ready.
Here’s an insight to what happens when you’re on your test. So, on the day your instructor will pick you up about an hour before your test and you will drive to the test centre, when you get there you will have to wait in the waiting room until your name is called out. Make sure you have your provisional licence as they will ask to check that first. Also, any glasses or contact lenses will need to come with you as you will be asked to read a number plate from one of the vehicles in the car park.
At the start of your test, before you set off, you will be asked a ‘tell me’ question, a safety question regarding the vehicle that you must explain by telling. A ‘show me’ question is the asked while you are driving, which you must explain by showing. During the drive, as the examiner will explain, you will drive straight on unless the examiner or signs tell you otherwise. Your test will include a 20-minute independent drive, 10 minutes where you will be asked to follow signs and 10 minutes where you follow directions from a SatNav. One manoeuvre will be carried out during the test, this could be at any point during your test, they can include an emergency stop as well as your manoeuvre. Your test will last a total of approximately 40 minutes.
Remember, the examiner is there to assess whether you have the basic ability to drive, you really start learning once you have passed. The examiner isn’t out to get you and feel free to ask them again if you feel you have misheard their instruction.
Ask your drivinglesson.com instructor to do a practice test with once you have covered everything on your progress sheet. This helps you ready yourself for the real thing and gives you an idea of what needs to be improved and a feel of how close you are until you can get out there on your own!
