Your general driving ability

You’ll drive in various road and traffic conditions, but not on motorways.

The examiner will give you directions that you should follow. Driving test routes aren’t published, so you can’t check them before your test.

What will I be tested on?

Pulling over at the side of the road

You’ll be asked to pull over and pull away during your test, including:


Reversing your vehicle

The examiner will ask you to do one of the following exercises:


Independent driving

You’ll have to drive for about 20 minutes by following either:

The examiner will tell you which you have to do.


Following directions from a sat nav

The examiner will provide the sat nav and set it up for you.  You can’t follow directions from your own sat nav during the test.


Going off the route

Your test result won’t be affected if you take a wrong turning, unless you make a fault while doing it.

The examiner will help you get back on the route if you do.


If you can’t see traffic signs

If you can’t see a traffic sign (for example, because it’s covered by trees), the examiner will give you directions until you can see the next one.


If you make mistakes during your test

You can carry on if you make a mistake. It might not affect your test result if it’s not serious.

The examiner will only stop your test if they think your driving is a danger to other road users.
