Your Driving Test
The driving test is designed for you to show you know and understand the Highway Code and the theory of driving safely. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises.
The driving test is straightforward and has been designed to see if you:
- Can drive safely in different road and traffic conditions
- Know The Highway Code and can show this through your driving
After meeting your examiner, the next two stages are:
- An eyesight check – if you fail this, your test will not continue -
- Your examiner will ask you two questions about carrying out vehicle safety checks -
