The driving test has been designed to assess whether you can drive a road vehicle safely, through a variety of road and traffic conditions. You will also need to demonstrate that you have sufficient knowledge of the Highway Code and that you are applying this in your driving.  

What will happen on the driving test?

Firstly, you will be asked to read a number plate from approximately 20 metres. Failing the eyesight test would mean that your test can not continue.

On passing the eyesight test you will be asked a couple of questions about the car. These are known as the 'Show me / tell me' questions. You will be asked one ‘show me' question and one ‘tell me' question. The questions relate to basic safety checks on the car. The following link will take you to the DVSA YouTube video clips:

Following the 'Show me / tell me' questions, the practical driving part of your test will begin. Throughout the drive, the examiner will give you directions to follow and you will be asked to complete several manoeuvres during the driving test. These will consist of the following:

  • Normal stops at the side of the road
  • Pulling out / moving away around a parked car
  • A hill-start
The reversing exercise will be chosen by the examiner from one of the following:

  • Reverse around a corner
  • Turn the car around in the road
  • Reverse park into a parking bay 
  • Parallel park at the side of the road

You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise. The examiner will give you plenty of notice if they are about to ask you to do this.

For part of your driving test, you will be asked to drive independently for 10 minutes. This will involve following either road signs to a destination (e.g City Centre), or a series of verbal directions, or it could be a combination of both.

What happens at the end of the driving test?

At the end of your driving test the examiner will ask you to secure the car and turn off the engine and they will give you the result there and then.

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.

You are allowed to take someone with you on the test, this person must be over 16 years old and cannot take any part in the test.
