On completion you are given the result. In order to pass you must succeed in both elements of the test. The certificate is then valid for 2 years.
Visit the official Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) website to book a test. Please be aware to use only the official web site as some sites charge an unnecessary commission.
Show Me, Tell Me
This is done at the beginning of the practical test and consists of two questions: Show me: how to actually check something on the car and Tell me: explaining another check in relation to the vehicle. Before the date of the test your driving instructor will give you a list of the all the possible questions and answers.
Practical Driving Test
The practical part of the driving test lasts about 40 minutes and will include a range of typical road and traffic conditions, plus one or two manoeuvres and a 20 minute independent drive . The examiner is looking for a good, safe drive. You are allowed up to 15 minor faults. A minor fault does not involve dangerous or potentially unsafe driver errors. If a serious or dangerous fault is recorded, it will result in failing the test.
Pass Plus does not involve a test and is an excellent way to build on your existing skills and knowledge to give you further experience for safe driving for life. On completion of the course, it can also reduce the cost of your car insurance.
