Driving Test Modernisation

From December 4th the practical driving test is being updated to include more modern day requirements. So what does this mean? Here is a summary of the changes:

1) Increasing the duration of the independent drive from 10 to 20 minutes.

2) Manoeuvres such as reversing around a corner replaced with more common manoeuvres such as driving into a bay.

3) Following a Sat-Nav as well as following road signs.

4) Asking vehicle safety questions while the candidate is driving. This could be asking the candidate to control the wipers or the heated windscreens. 

For more information on this don’t hesitate to ask me, or check out the link on the DSA website as below:
