Practical Test

WHAT IS A PRACTICAL TEST

The driving test for a car is designed for you to show you understand and can demonstrate your knowledge of the Highway Code and the theory of driving safely. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises.

The driving test is straightforward and has been designed to see if you:

  • can drive safely in different road and traffic conditions
  • know The Highway Code and can demonstrate this through your driving

After meeting your examiner, the next two stages are:

  • an eyesight check – if you fail this, your test will not continue
  • your examiner will ask you two questions about carrying out vehicle safety checks

Candidates will be asked two questions, one 'show me' and one 'tell me'. One or both questions answered incorrectly will result in one driving fault being recorded.
