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.

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.
