Practical Test


Once you've passed your theory test, you're on your way to the final step of getting your full driving licence - taking your practical test.


When your driving skills are at a suitable standard and providing you've passed your theory test within the last two years, you can get your practical test booked. Your instructor will discuss this with you as your driving approaches the standard required for your test. As part of the test you will be asked to follow signs to a particular location to see how well you deal with driving without direction from the examiner, this is 'independent driving'. The short video opposite gives you an idea of what to expect.


If you would like your instructor to book your test, let them know. If you are booking the test yourself, please discuss when it will be with your instructor to ensure a vehicle will be available at that time.
