The Practical Test


Need to Pass your Practical Test? We Can Help

Your driving lesson test will start with an eyesight check and then two safety check questions, one ‘show me’ and one ‘tell me’.

You will then start your practical test which will include one specific manoeuvres and roughly a ten minute independent drive. This can consist of following either a set of directions via diagrams or road signs.

The driving part of the test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying the the set manoeuvres. You can make up to 15 minor driving faults and still pass your test ( 16 or more results in failure ). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test.

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

can drive safely

know The Highway Code and can demonstrate this in your driving

During your test you will be asked to carry out one reversing exercise. The reversing exercise will be chosen from:

reversing around a corner

turning in the road

reverse parking

You may be also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise.

At ASPEN we are committed to making sure that you will be fully trained and ready before you take your test, having the confidence to pass !!
