Practical Test

The practical driving test is designed to make sure you can drive safely in different road and traffic conditions and can demonstrate your knowledge of the Highway Code through your driving. The test lasts around 40 minutes and comprises of the following: 

Eyesight test: 
You will be asked to read a license plate from 20 metres (20.5m if an old-style plate) - if you cannot manage this after two attempts the test will not go ahead. 

Show Me - Tell Me: 
Answer two questions about carrying out vehicle safety checks. At the start of the test the examiner will ask a tell me question. During the drive the examiner will ask a show me question. A loss of control whilst answering the show me question will result in a serious fault.
