The DVSA state that if you have on average around 45 hours professional tuition with an instructor and 22 hours private practice you stand a good chance of passing a driving test. But everyone learns at different speeds, some may take longer whilst others will take less. We tailor our lessons to suit your learning ability so that you fully understand the topic taught. Your instructor will show you the test routes whilst you are learning so you can familiarize yourself with them.

Please take the time to read the link below on structured training from the DVSA, we follow the DVSA syllabus and your training will be recorded on our pupil record sheets.

The new practical driving test will commence from Monday 4th October 2010

So what is to be expected on the day of your test?

Your test will be around 35- 45 minutes long comprising of a driving licence check first and then an eyesight test, this will be conforming to a minimum distance of 20 meters in good daylight with a fixed number plate off of another vehicle of legal height and width. (Our instructors will check both parts of your licence and do an eyesight check on your first lesson). Don't worry if you wear spectacles or contact lenses. If the eyesight test is failed on the day you will not be allowed to take your driving test. When the eyesight test is completed you will then be asked two questions from the Show Me, Tell Me question bank which relate to basic car maintenance. You will then finally be taken out onto the road where you can demonstrate your skills and perform one manoeuvre (either: reverse around a corner, reverse park on the road, bay park at the test centre or a turn in the road). As of the above date a new section will be introduced to the test which will be titled Independent Driving and will last approximately 10 minutes. During this time you will be asked to drive with no instruction from the examiner but asked to either follow road signs, shown a diagram of where he/she would like you to go or given directional turns in blocks of no more than 3 at a time. In addition you may also be asked to perform a controlled stop, otherwise known as an emergency stop). The actual drive will be at least 30 minutes long and you must obtain no more than 15 minor faults (no more than 3 minors in one box either), no serious or dangerous faults are allowed.

                 

Your instructor will let you know when you are ready for a test (you will feel it too) as they will do at least one mock test with you, this will be performed under the same regulations as a real driving test.

If you perform to the level that you have been taught you can rip those L-Plates up and your free to enjoy your independence.

Congratulations and well done

But remember after you have passed your driving test you are on probation for 2 years and must not get 6 points on your licence, if you do you will have to take your theory test again and do an extended driving test which can last up to 1 hr and 20 mins. Basically start all over again but this time it's much harder. Look after your licence and your life by 'driving safe for life' not just the test.

Top 10 reasons for failing a driving test

Observation at junctions - ineffective observation and judgement

Reverse parking - ineffective observation or a lack of accuracy

Use of mirrors - not checking or not acting on the information

Reversing around a corner - ineffective observation or a lack of accuracy

Incorrect use of signals - not cancelling or giving misleading signals

Moving away safely - ineffective observation

Incorrect positioning on the road - at roundabouts or on bends

Lack of steering control - steering too early or leaving it too late

Incorrect positioning to turn right - at junctions and in one way streets

Inappropriate speed - travelling too slowly or being hesitant
