The DVSA Driving Test expects a high standard of driving and a good knowledge of The Highway Code, this will have to be demonstrated to the Examiner on your test drive.
By the time your test comes around the training will have covered everything you need to know and this will give you the confidence needed for a good positive safe drive.
All the skills practised in the preceding weeks should be fresh in your mind and will then be natural so the test will not need any extra effort.
The test begins with an eyesight test and the vehicle safety checks (you need to answer any two from nineteen questions). The drive itself lasts about 38- 40 minutes and will cover as many different situations as possible, town driving, Dual Carriageways, change of speed limits, Roundabouts, meeting other cars, quiet suburban driving and 1 out of 4 manoeuvres plus possibly, the emergency stop. Once the test starts you may find that you enjoy it and time passes quickly.
There is now an independent driving part to the test. This is to see if you can follow road signs and or simple directions safely or a sat nav for about 20 minutes which you might need to do once you have passed your test.
What you will be assessed on is how you drive on the day, examiners understand "nerves" and make allowances for this.
The way you have been taught to drive for your driving test is how you should drive all the time and is in line with Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency "Safe Driving for Life" policy.
