THE TEST

Your driving test will be the first time you have to drive unaided. The examiner is there to assess your driving, he expects you to be able to deal with any situation that arises. The learners who pass first time are the ones who are well instructed and take the advise of there instructor. A mock tests will help you assess your level. Documents, you need to present your Provisional Driving Licence. If you have the old style licence you need to take additional photo ID (your passport)

EYE SIGHT TEST

You must be able to read a car number plate from 20 meters. You may read the number plate with glasses or contact lenses.




SHOW ME TELL ME

You will be asked by the examiner to show or tell how you would perform various car safety checks.

THE DRIVE

The drive lasts approximately 45 minutes and is designed to include a variety of situations, busy town driving, roundabouts, and dual carriageway, various junctions and traffic systems. The test includes various set manoeuvres e.g. parking; turn in the road, various types corner reverses and emergency stop. If you can drive the test is not difficult.






The examiners use set criteria to mark your test. They know you will be nervous, you are allowed to make up to 15 minor errors and still pass. One serious or dangerous fault however will result in a fail.

90 Min Intro Lesson
I will explain what happens on a Driving Test and how the Test Examiners will mark you. We shall also do an eyesight test, nothing serious, just to check that you can read a number plate from a set distance. I will explain the "Cockpit Drill" and explain all of the hand and foot controls, where they are how to use them and how to understand my instructions. As a bonus the lesson will also act as a Great "Ice-Breaker" without any commitments.

New drivers only.

The aim of the Assessment Lesson is purely to see how capable you are rather than to teach new skills or eliminate errors. However I shall if required help you to improve any skills that I feel will benefit your overall driving ability.
