You will have 40 minutes to demonstrate your skills and abilities, and show you can drive competently and safely in all kinds of driving situations.
You will also have to carry out 1 manoeuvre, and possibly the emergency stop. You may have to drive with SatNav or may do Indpendent driving, which will last 20 minutes.
At the beginning of the test you will have to do a “show me” “tell me” on how you would carry out safely and maintenance checks on your vehicle.
You can find it in the Learner Login section.
If you do not have the password, ask your Driving Instructor.
You will have to answer 2 questions, the 1st “tell me” question at the beginning of the test and the 2nd “show me ” question as you are driving.
At the end of your test the examiner will tell you if you have passed or failed.
If you commit anything serious or dangerous during the test or more than 15 minor errors during the test you will then fail.
Once you have passed your test you are on a probationary period for 2 years, if you collect 6 penalty points you can be disqualified from driving and have to retake your theory/practical tests again.
