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.

How Long Is a Driving Test?

Perhaps your driving test will fly by. It might seem like no time has passed at all between meeting your examiner and parking up at the end. Or maybe it’ll drag, as you slow-breathe your way through each skill and manoeuvre. However it may feel on the day, examiners make sure that all practical tests are, so far as possible, equal. That means equal in difficulty, equal in how they’re marked, and also equal in terms of length. Your test,...
