The practical driving test is the final piece of the puzzle for getting your full UK driving licence!
Before you book your driving test, you'll need to pass your driving theory test. Remember to take your theory test certificate to the practical test centre as you’ll need it as proof you have passed.
Note: The practical test is changing from December 2017. Below is how the test will be from this date.
Here’s how the practical part of the driving test is broken up:
- An Eyesight Check
- Vehicle Safety Questions - “Show me, Tell me”
For example, “show me how to test the brakes”, “show me how to check the oil level”.
- Directed Driving
Following directions from the examiner and performing various manoeuvres
- Reversing Your Vehicle
- Independent Driving
- Receiving Your Result
Below is a little more information about each part, along with some dyslexia-friendly tips to improve your chances of passing.
