Driving Test Information

The practical test is made up of three elements, the Eye Sight test, Show Me Tell Me Questions and finally the actual Practical test.

 

Practical Driving Test

 

Eye Sight Test
The first part of your test will be to take an eye sight test. You should be able to read a car registration number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres or 20 metres if the new-style number plate is used. New-style number plates are easily identifiable starting with two letters e.g. AB 51 ABC.

 

Show Me Tell Me Test
This is a simple test based around basic car maintenance. The driving test examiner will ask you two questions one "show me" and the other "tell me". The questions and answers are widely published but all pupils of Safestyle Driving Lessons will receive these as part of their lessons and a full explanation will also be provided.

 

Practical Test
In order to pass the practical driving test you must demonstrate that you have a good understanding of the Highway Code and have the ability to drive safely on various types of road and traffic conditions. All pupils of Safestyle Driving Lessons will use the car that they have been learning in for their test and will already have experienced Mock Tests before the day, so they will know what to expect on the day.

 

From 4 October 2010 your practical driving test will include a section of ‘independent driving’. During your test you’ll have to drive by either following a series of directions, following traffic signs, or a combination of both, for about ten minutes. To help you understand where you’re going, the examiner may show you a diagram. It doesn't matter if you don't remember every direction, or if you go the wrong way - that can happen to the most experienced drivers. Independent driving is not a test of your orientation and navigation skills. Driving independently means making your own decisions - this includes deciding when it’s safe and appropriate to ask for confirmation about where you’re going.

 

Once the test is over the examiner will tell you the result there and then. Whatever the result a de-brief will be offered to you and your instructor for further training or advice.
