About the Driving Test

You will need to take both parts of your driving licence and your theory certificate.


Eyesight Test

At the start of your test the examiner will ask you to perform an eyesight test from a 20 metre distance.


Show Me, Tell Me Questions

You will be expected to answer two vehicle safety questions, e.g. ‘can you show me how your horn works’, If you don’t answer correctly for one or both questions you will receive one driving fault.


Driving Ability Test


The test will last for around 40 minutes, in which time you must show the examiner that you can demonstrate a safe drive.

During your test your examiner will direct you around the test route. One in three tests will be asked to perform the emergency stop exercise.



You will be asked to perform one reversing exercise from the following list:

  • Reversing around a corner
  • Turn in the road
  • Reverse park or parallel park
  • Independent drive

You will be asked to demonstrate a 10 minute drive following a series of directions testing your ability to make decisions while driving safely.

  • You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass your test but you cannot commit any serious or dangerous faults.
