Practical Test

When you’re learning to drive, all of the skills that you gain help you to build up to one thing: the practical test. For most learner drivers, this is, understandably, a nervous experience—after all, it’s the last thing standing between you and the open road. But remember: although the test is nerve-wracking, it’s far from impossible. In this section, we’ve compiled some handy tips and useful advice to help you stay positive, keep your focus, and gain an extra edge ready for your test. We’ll also provide you with the latest updates you need to know about all things related to practical tests—helping you stay prepared.

That’s because the DVSA made a limited number of emergency driving tests and theory tests available, with NHS and social care staff at the top of the list.

My PassMeFast Experience: Passing First Time!

My PassMeFast experience

One of the biggest milestones for most people is passing the driving test and gaining the freedom of the roads.

Though I was familiar with the ins and outs of the practical test, to say I wasn’t fully prepared for the bumpy road ahead would...
