Practical Driving Test

Taking Your Driving Test

The UK practical driving test lasts around 40 minutes. It is designed to allow you to demonstrate your knowledge of the highway code and the theory of driving.

Your examiner will be looking for an overall standard of safe driving, consciousness of other road users, and also your ability to carry out the set exercises you would have practiced during your learning period.

Things to remember

You will be allowed up to 15 minor faults before you fail your practical driving test, However just one major fault will earn you an outright fail.

Whether you pass your test or not will depend largely on your nerves and how you deal with them. We encourage confidence with our approach and we put you up for your test because we believe you have the ability to pass.
