One free lesson when you introduce a friend

First Lesson





After you have completed your eyesight test and answered the vehicle safety questions the examiner will ask you to enter the car.


Try to relax and carry out all the drills and skills you have been taught during your lessons and private practice.


Throughout the driving test the examiner will be watching how you drive and how you put into practice the things that you learnt to pass your theory test.


You must satisfy the examiner that you have full understanding of the following:


• Alertness and concentration.

• Courtesy and consideration.

• Care in the use of controls to reduce mechanical wear and tear.

• Awareness of stopping distances, speed limits and safety margins in all conditions.

• Hazard awareness.

• Correct action concerning pedestrians and other vulnerable road users.

• Dealing with other types of vehicle in the correct manner.

• Road and traffic signs.


The drive will last about 40 minutes. The route has been selected to include as many different road and traffic conditions as possible. The examiner will give you directions clearly and in good time, but if your not sure about anything just ask. The examiner understands that you may be nervous and wont mind explaining again.


During the drive you will also be asked to carry out some of the following special exercises, they will take place at carefully selected places.


• Reversing around a corner.

• Turning in the road.

• Reverse parking (either in a bay at the test centre or on the side of the road).

• Emergency stop or controlled stop


The examiner will also be looking for evidence that you have the required skills, knowledge and attitude to be a safe driver and that you are able to make decisions for yourself. The driving test also includes a 10-minute period of independent driving, during which you will be asked to drive by:


• Following traffic signs to a destination, or

• Following a series of verbal directions, or

• A combination of both.


This part of the test will enable the examiner to assess how you manage traffic and road systems on your own, and show that you have the skills to be a safe novice driver.

Don’t worry if you make mistakes, few people take the test without making faults. Keep calm and concentrate on your driving for the rest of the test. You will pass if you can show your examiner that you can drive safely and demonstrate, through your driving, that you have a thorough knowledge of the rules of The Official Highway Code and the theory of driving safely.




Throughout the test your examiner will have assessed your driving and will have completed a Driving Test Report. This will then be used to provide you with feedback at the test centre when you are given your result.


The examiner uses the following criteria when assessing your performance:


Driving Fault – Less serious, but has been assessed as such because of circumstances at that particular time. An accumulation of more than 15 driving faults will result in failure


Serious Fault – recorded when a potentially dangerous incident has occurred or a habitual driving fault indicates a serious weakness in a candidates driving. Committing one of these will result in failure.


Dangerous Fault – Recorded when a fault is assessed as having caused actual danger during the test. Committing one of these will result in failure.
