Practical Test

Once you have passed the theory test you can then sit your practical test. Your driving instructor will let you know when you have reached the standard to pass your test.

At the start of the test your examiner will ask you to produce both parts of your driving licence and have your theory certificate available if required.

An eye test will be carried out at the beginning of the test so if you wear glasses do not forget to bring these with you.

You will then be asked two question “show and tell” format.

After these questions you test will begin. The test lasts approximately 40 minutes and you will be asked to drive in a number of various road and traffic conditions similar to those you will of practised with your driving instructor as well as carrying  out one of the four  manoeuvres you have been practicing with your instructor.

From the 4th October 2010 the driving test changed, you will need to drive independantly for a period of approximately 8-10 minutes from instructions given by your examiner and carry out only one of four manouvres you will have learned with your instructor.
