Driving Test

Driving TestThe Driving Test.

Driving Test appointments are controlled by the DSA Drivers Standards Agency. The time it takes to pass both Theory and Practical Tests depends on current the waiting lists. If your preferred test date is unavailable, we will keep trying on your behalf until we get a suitable appointment. You should allow as much time as possible when booking your test; however we can sometimes arrange this at very short notice. Please contact us to discuss availability.
Intensive driving courses can be fun if you put your mind to it. we are here to put the trust you need in a recognised school.

You will have a lesson or two before your test then your driving  instructor will take you to the appointment  test centre.
Arriving there you will have to sit and wait in a DSA waiting room for your examiner to come out and call your name.

The Driving Test for car drivers is about 40 minutes long. During this time the examiner will:

1. Check your eyesight by getting you to read a number plate at the required distance.
2. Ask you to show or tell them how to conduct certain vehicle safety checks
3. Direct you to drive around a test route while incorporating two of the following set manoeuvres and optionally the emergency stop.

select one manoeuvres: ie

* Reverse parking behind a parked car
* Turn in the road

You will also be asked to do independent driving which came out in Oct 2010
This means you wll be asked to drive for approx 10 mins following a serious of road signs.

Booking the driving test
You can obtain a driving test application form (DL26) from your driving instructor, any driving or theory test centre or by telephoning the driving test enquiry line on 0870 0101 372, between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.  Welsh speakers can also book on 0870 0100 372. If you are deaf and need a minicom machine telephone 0870 0106 372. If you are able to pay by credit or debit card you can book a driving test appointment direct on the same numbers without the need to complete an application form. You will however, need to quote your driver number from your provisional driving licence, your theory test pass certificate number and your driving school code if you are being trained by a professional driving instructor. Upon booking you will be given a booking number and sent an appointment card as confirmation within a few days.
WHEN REPORTING FOR YOUR THEORY/PRACTICAL TEST You must produce your current UK Provisional License, (BOTH PAPER PART AND CARD). If you have lost your license you will not be able to take your test.
